I don't know if anyone caught this on NBC's "Today Show" this morning but I thought it was priceless! I can actually see the new Master card commercial in the making:

1. Weather Balloon on Ebay...........$25.00
2. GPS Tracking Device on Ebay.....$250.00
3. Digital Camera on Ebay.............$99.00
4. Duct Tape from Home Depot......$2.99
5. Box from Staples......................$5.00

Pictures taken from the edge of the earth (and shoving in at NASA's face)..........Priceless. :rolling:

Haha that's brilliant! I think the operating limitations they put on the camera may have been exceeded by a bit.

He may have used some kind of insulated box to help it go a bit, maybe? But yeah, definitely exceeded it.
