Farker Soze: Yep, there's that nihilism you'd expect from a survivor of such a traumatic incident. Thank God ol' Buzz wasn't wearing clown makeup and Croks, who knows how worse off you'd have turned out.

c) 36,000 km (geosynchronous orbit; about 6 Earth radii)
d) 385,000 km (about the distance to the Moon; 60 Earth radii)
e) beyond the Moon

In ten years, maybe I'll buy a 3D printer if it makes tiny plastic parts to decorate my quadcopter.

My 3d printed heart feels for you.
