Wingsuits Off Everest

This has to be one of those must watch events. CNN reports a guy plans to jump of the top of Mt. Everest in a wing suit. If you haven't seen those wing suits, they basically turn a person into a super fast glider. I don't see how he can make it, but I'll be watching. 

We watched a show on TV a while back about wing suits. Guys would jump from high cliffs and go flying down to lower elevations really fast- about 150mph. Awesome footage from their helmet cams. I don't have the guts to do it but it must be quite a thrill for those that do.

One of the guys featured on the show ended up getting killed later on. Ran into a tree or something. They didn't show that one.

If the good Lord had intended for us to fly he would have given us wings. Just ask Icarus!

A "Wing Suit" does not a bird make!

Ernie's right. Zeus says no to manned flight. All airlines should be shut down immediately.
