You can babble on as long as you like. I'll start eating pills
against turning red and running out of breath by the mere
thought of supersonic balloons (I'll be forever in your debt
for that one).

However, I urge you to take some black coffee for boosting
your accuracy, as you seem to have missed that the
highest recorded speed was 1010 knots. (For those outside
the English language area, this is around 1900 km/hr).
When we keep missing such signifant details, we
could indeed get a little confused, he, Peregrine Prozac?
