Quotes

Bill McNeal: Jim, a practical question at this juncture, if I may ?
Jimmy James: Go ahead.
Bill McNeal: Thank you. Hasn't this been done before? I mean, it seems like every year another billionaire is trying to fly around the world in a balloon.
Jimmy James: Well, why the hell do you think I'm doing this? I mean, the peer pressure among billionaires is incredibly intense. Bill Gates practically called me a nancy boy.
