In the category of “Ho-leeee Crap, Not Me, Not Ever” I give you this story:
Record-seeking skydiver makes 13-mile test jump
Get that? A TEST jump! Do you keep trying until you get it right?
And that’s not all – he plans to make even higher jumps in the future, working towards a 23-mile fall to the earth.
How do you even work out getting picked up when you land? Is there a GPS beacon involved? I suppose that over the course of 23 miles, there may be some steering involved, but I still worry about landing in the middle of some hostile civilization, or hostile landscape.
And is this his theme song?
