Poor Steve, although I suppose there is a good chance that most of us everyday bums would do the exact same thing. There is a reason that aerobatic teams and fighter pilots have to be in good physical condition.
Give me a mile of road and I can take you a mile. Give me a mile of runway and I can show you the world.

Actually fainting from High G is not so bad, really, apart from the shame that you feel afterwards...
You just feel REAL heavy, and pulled down like crazy. Then you go blind, and eventually just doze off. You come back to life slowly and naturally after a few secs, which is why our buddy Stevo here seems gone for a few seconds, even though his eyes are opened.
Now the stomach thing is another fight altogether....
Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit posting...
