The danger when people start to believe their own publicity is that they often fall off their own ego.

At least travelling under the guise of the Pa Snip Enterprise gives me an excuse for appearing to be on another planet

Yes, I did enjoy it - the only actual scary part was the very moment when I was sitting in the door of the plane, looking down from 3 miles up in the air, and thinking this might not be a good idea! However, once in flight (well, falling actually!) it was totally fine. Surreal yes - scary no. Had a training session beforehand so knew what to expect. Well recommended.
