yeah this is why modern ejection seats are set up with a parachute, so instead of when you eject you splorp right back down in the plane you just ejected from, the parachute makes your seat slow down while the plane keeps going, so you end up behind it

i imagine the parachute probably stops you from hitting the ground too, but i don't know much about this besides the basics

nah making sure you don't hit the ground (until you want to) was the airplane's job, the parachute just makes it so you hit the ground less hard

look man I'm done. First you wanted to be on the ground. Then you wanted to be in the air. Then you wanted to be on the ground again but get there really slowly. I just don't get it

Yup. They'll tell HR to keep the door open until they can't. HR is also probably one of the last departments to find out I bet.

iirc the first ejection seats used a 40mm blank cannon shell and the back of the seat had a tube that slid over the "barrel" of the ejection mechanism, shooting you out of the plane like a mortar

This is why old people are awesome. Nowadays kids want warning labels on everything and not to get mortared out of a moving airplane

a wacky fact is that the i3 is actually cheaper to fix than a Tesla when thereís frame damage

you literally cut the section out, epoxy and rivet a new one in, and clip the body panels on.
