    EVGA has brought you products that make your computer fly for years, but now it's time to make our customers fly as well. EVGA has partnered with Zero G to bring our customers an amazing weightless experience. Imagine free falling 10,000 feet, without a parachute! Zero G makes it possible by flying a plane to approximately 34,000 feet and then going into a nose dive for 10,000 feet before pulling up. This rollercoaster effect (shown in the picture below) will generate 25-30 seconds of weightlessness on each drop. This is the same type of training that NASA uses for astronauts.

    It's a parabolic flight. I saw it once with a Russian plane.
    Did not want to sit in it. To much vodka drinking.:laugh:

    I think it's a cool idea, I don't see the relation, but still cool.
    I mean, such a flight costs about 4,000$ or so last time I checked. :)

    It all seems clear to me. Enter the contest, If you win the Grand Prize then you get to go one one of those Zero G flights. If you win second place, you and 99 other folks will get a copy of Dark Messiah. I think it would cool as **** to get to experience zero gravity.

    Suggestion.....hire a ferarri for the weekend, floorboard it for 2 days flat out, enjoy the buzz, the elegance and the adrenalin rush and with the change from the $4000 buy yourself a new puter! (or even better buy me one).

    Or:

    Enter the competition.......Win..........sell the 1st prize for $4000..............

    repeat as above!
