Hadfield comes home to $1.37 million Rogers phone bill - The Beaverton - North America's Trusted Source of News

Quote:
KAZAKHSTAN – After five months in space, Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield was shocked to discover his cell phone provider has charged him well over a million dollars for data usage and roaming charges while he was in space.
“This is ridiculous,” said the 53 year-old who recently commanded the International Space Station and a proud owner of an iPhone 5. “I only Instagrammed a few hundred pictures of the sun coming up over the Sahara Desert and a thunderstorm over the Pacific Ocean, posted my videos of me eating in space a few dozen times on Twitter and watched a few YouTube videos of goats that sound like humans and that’s it!”

When asked why he didn’t buy a better data plan, Hadfield responded “I didn’t want to pay for an additional $20 a month rip-off when I’m orbiting the earth in 90 minutes.”

“My parents are going to kill me!” he added.

It's Col...but fuck it. I changed it to something more appropriate.

Does he have a national holiday yet? Or a beer named after him? C'mon people! WE MUST HONOR THIS MAN FOR HIS ACHIEVEMENTS IN AWESOMENESS IN SOME WAY.

^ Hadfield never went to Top Gun.

This is TOPGUN:

United States Navy Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor program - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is where Hadfield went:

U.S. Air Force Test Pilot School - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Though he did finish top of his class so could be considered the "Top Gun".

I really wonder what kind of pension he has or how he gets paid when he was in the space station. That would be a whole lot of OT lol

I wonder if he will consider running for PM, I really hope so since we could use someone like him.

^ while all signs point to him being a good candidate, I will reserve my opinion till the poignant questions are asked and he has a chance to answer, should he ever run for Prime Minister

Hadfield has been promoting his book lately, and made a few appearances. Including an AWESOME podcast with Joe Rogan. Even if you don't normally listen to JRE, you definitely need to check this out.


MP3

Also he was on Conan which is hilarious as always

Chris Hadfield is miles above Joe Rogan. When Rogan started talking about aliens and talking down on people for having an interest or belief, you can see Hadfield not agreeing with him. Hadfield had to take a pause before responding to those comments. Hadfield genuinely has an interest in bettering the human species without being arrogant or forceful about it.

Great to hear him speak, though I'm sure it would have been a better interview had it not been Joe Rogan.

Hadfield has been doing the rounds in town here - was on the Bill Good Show Friday afternoon (find it on their Audio Vault or here on Soundcloud), then CBC Radio 1's Early Edition this morning, did a signing session the other day at Science World, etc. etc.

Edit: Listening to it now, Chris taking questions from callers... dude is just so unbelievable grounded for someone who spent months in space. Could listen to this guy talk all day.

Just came across this interview with Strombo... just fantastic. Two guys I could watch all day just chatting it up. So much deeper than your average late-night talk show.

He's coming to Vancouver in a couple weeks. I'm going to go meet him with some other BCIT alumni.
