Mon Dieux! Je ne peut pas tomber!

This story cracks me up. Seems a French guy wanted to parachute from 25 miles up. Yeah, you heard me, 25 miles. Despite the hazards, blood clots, no oxygen, blood boiling, despite his pressure suit to fend off the dangers, seems Michel Fournier had one small problem, namely, a competent ground crew. Seems they let go of the balloon he was to ride up into the sky and then jump from. There's a video here . . .

Oh, if you don't speak French and need to translate the headline, check here.
