Swiss Maniac Does the Grand Canyon

Holy freaking cow. I thought I liked a little adrenaline, but Yves Rossy makes me look like a pansy. Heck, next to him, I am a pansy.

The stunt came in multiple stages—first off, a reasonable hop out of a chopper, 8,000 feet above the Arizona turf. Then, the four-motor jetpack kicked in, sending Rossy screaming across the canyon at a beard-peeling 190 MPH. And then, to cap it all off, a parachute ride down to the canyon’s bottom. That’s three modes of transportation, all requiring guts the magnitude of which I will never possess the half of.

At least he wore a helmet. Heh.

Video right here.

I was born in Saginaw, Michigan, and I grew up in a house on Saginaw Bay. My daddy was a poor, hardworking Saginaw fisherman. Too many times he came home with too little pay. Naw, not really, but it sounds more interesting than the real bio, so there you are.
