I am officially going to stop patting myself on the back for jumping off of the high dive in junior high (something I did as recently as last weekend). Even thinking about what this guy is thinking about makes me ill.
Michel Fournier was set to attempt to break several records. Fastest freefall. Longest freefall (25 miles, yes miles), highest jump and highest altitude reached by a man in a balloon.
Luckily, his balloon left without him.
