Amazon shares skyrocketed from $600 a share to a record high of $681.50 in after hours trading. Their first quarter earnings report was impressive as shares of Amazon surged about 10% after the company shared their earnings of $1.07 per share on $29.13 billion in revenue.

Beth Anderson, the wife of a former Amazonian, wrote in a letter published by Quartz and addressed to the CEO in answer to his request for direct feedback:
Does Jeff Bezos’ new rocket look like a dick, or what?
Yesterday, almost by surprise, rocket company Blue Origin, founded by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos in 2000, launched their spaceship, New Shepherd, from their West Texas launch base, ushering in another company that will potentially provide commercial space flights with affordable rockets — only this one is the most penis-shaped of them all.
