Man Loses Patience, Moves to Edge of Space
Phil Johnson, fed up with his neighbor’s leaf blower, moved into a floating capsule at the edge of space Tuesday.
The pod, which floats 24 miles above the Earth’s surface, has made a dramatic difference in silencing the droning whine of the leaf blower.
But Johnson says the pod’s interior soundproofing “is what really quiets things down.”
“My neighbor can blow those leaves where the sun don’t shine for all I care,” he said via satellite, sipping his coffee while the continent drifted below.
Johnson’s neighbor, who had no idea he was bothering him, was so shocked by the move that he died.
