Ejecting From A SR-71 At Mach 3.2

So Forgetfoo found a nice counterpoint to the parachute jump from space: Ejecting From A SR-71 At Mach 3.2.

I don’t think the chances of surviving an ejection at Mach 3.18 and seventy-eight thousand eight hundred feet were very good. However, g-forces built up so rapidly that my words came out garbled and unintelligible, as confirmed later by the cockpit voice recorder.
