This brings to mind so many fantastic quotes from one of the greatest movies of all time that I’m hard pressed to pick a favorite. I’m speaking, of course, of Top Gun. Is there anything better than the pseudo-homosexual tension and rivalry of Iceman and Maverick in this eight-time Oscar-winning film? makes possible the dream of every teenage and twenty-something male from the past two decades:

You don’t have to be a famous celebrity to experience the thrill of starring in your own documentary film. All cameras will be on you as you prepare for and complete a flight in a jet fighter. Flying adventures in the L-39 jet fighter are now available in the town where dreams come true. For one incredible hour, you can play the role of fighter pilot.

Yes, for only $2950 US, you can pretend to be Iceman or Maverick or any other one dimensional, crotch-grabbing, 80’s-era pretty boy fighter pilot you can dream up.

Iceman: You’re everyone’s problem. That’s because every time you go up in the air, you’re unsafe. I don’t like you because you’re dangerous.
Maverick: That’s right! Ice. Man. I am dangerous.

Has a better piece of scripted gold come out of Hollywood in the past fifty years? I think not.

Still not sold? Imagine listening to this on your iPod while pulling a 6G turn at 10,000 feet:

I think my Antarctica expedition may have to wait.
