The people the world would be better off without are the pathetic internet wags who are so keen to rid the world of everyone they don't like (which is normally anyone who has done better than them).

Get lives, little dweebs.

So what have the Winklers done for this world?

They won a court case and got some money.

I think I can say with some certainty that no matter how little the Winklevii have done for the world, it is more than you or I.

The photographer should have got that light fitting directly above Branson's head. Maybe rearrange the furniture as well .....etc.

Would it be wrong to hope

That all the real wanker "celebrities" like them who are of no redeeming value to the human race all end up on the same flight, and it blows up on the launch pad?

Took the words right out of my mouth. There's never a B Ark around when you really need one...

Interesting...

Using fake currency to buy a space flight from a fake space flight company. Are both parties saying "SUCKER!" here?

Have they actually ever been to space or are they just selling a pipe dream ?

When Virgin Galactic gets a paying customer into space, they will become a space travel company.

Re: Winklevi

Actually, by any reckoning the Winkle brothers (Bull & Peri) did pretty well on that. $60M just for having an idea - thats like 240 Virgin Galactic Flights (which is enough for anyone) - thosee last few flights are going to be feeling pretty samey. Zuckerberg with 1$Bn is looking at 1333 VG flights - sounds like a new kind of hell to me ;-)
