Dad in the Box

Let me ask you something.   If you had a couple hundred thousand dollars lying around, like in a penny jar or something, would you spend it on a trip to outer space knowing that it could potentially end, let’s say, not well?   Uber rich guys like Jeff Bezos and Sir Richard Branson are betting customers will.  At least customers with a few hundred large to burn.  They are rapidly building commercial space programs to give money-is-no-object thrill seekers willing to sign a Hold Harmless Waiver the ultimate ...

Check. Dollar store decorations? You betcha. Hitting up the free local trick-or-treating events? You can bet all of your Fun Size M&Ms ...
