Lost in space

If your investment banker was spending an inordinate amount of money on three trips to space in the middle of a “global economic crisis” would you change banks? His name is Per Wimmer, he’s lined up to be the first space tourist. He runs an investment bank.

From his own website – which one can only assume is autobiographical:

In brief, Per Wimmer is a global financier, an entrepreneur, an adventurer, a pioneer and a philanthropist – or, as a commentator has argued, a true “Indiana Jones meets 007 James Bond.”

Yeah, I’d trust a renaissance man like that with my money. If I was a fictional character. Seriously, fiscal responsibility is the new black.¬†Opulence¬†is out. That’s why, in Townsville I’d choose these guys – who have the worst ads and uniforms in the region, over these guys who spent last year building an extravagant office space – and losing their over leveraged clients an average of 17%.

The author

Nathan runs St Eutychus. He loves Jesus. His wife. His daughter. His son. His other daughter. His dog. Coffee. And the Internet. He is the campus pastor at Creek Road South Bank, a graduate of Queensland Theological College (M. Div) and the Queensland University of Technology (B. Journ). He spent a significant portion of his pre-ministry-as-a-full-time-job life working in Public Relations, and now loves promoting Jesus in Brisbane and online. He can't believe how great it is that people pay him to talk and think about Jesus.
