That is really amazing footage.
                                The guy must have nerves of steel.I rember some 25 years ago the two friends who invented this sport.their mams sewed the suits to their design and they were slowly modifying the suits to travel farther.They eventually were able to jump out of a plane and fly 10 mile but Patrice was killed and i dont know what happened to the other bloke after that.
     One of their discoveries was the use of little scoops to fill the wings with air.They left a slit in the suit which forces air into the wings and made them fly much better.

I can't see how that would ever be fun but  he is very skilled, if he lost height too quickly there would ne no chance to open the parachute.   

Much better to let the camera do the flying on its own.

This clip squeezes into the science area on a couple of counts. Mainly being physics due to gravity, and psychology due to insanity.

And all because the lady loves.........



Oh blast, I can only presume he left out the 500g box of Milk Tray because of the extra weight being too risky, and the fact he is too young to remember the adverts.

I'll presume you were playing in goal then? As I can't see you managing to run around the park with a Magner's in your paw and be playing to the best of your abilities (unless you are a relation of George Best that is).

Drinking cider? Be careful with that as it has sulphites in it according to the labels I read the other day.  Shocked
I seem to recall a bit of a secondary buzz in my urethra the next day after drinking "just over"  Wink the RDA.

Having a Cider sounds like the safest bet to me
