  1. Debris? naah. He just planned some open panels so he could steer into that tree on landing.
    Death wish comes to mind.

  2. Years ago, my Granny always said to never buy parachutes at Target. I hope he kept the receipt.

  3. You know, I developed a formulation, years ago, that went something like this;

    When you’re young and don’t know any better, you get away with stupid stuff because you don’t know any better.

    And, conversely, when you’re old enough to know better and do it anyway, well, there will be consequences.

    This time, Mike survived. A little battered, to be sure but, again, alive. Yet, Mike thinks he’s going to survive his next effort.

    He can’t say he hasn’t been warned.

  4. Just thinking a little here (which Mike isn’t) – he could get a pretty good look from a lot higher than 1,800 feet, a lot cheaper, a lot safer, if he bought a commercial airline ticket.
    I guess he’s afraid he might not get a window seat.

  5. Somewhere “up there” Evel Knievel’s pulling for you, Mad Mike!

    I see some difference between Knieval and Mike – Knieval made no bones about doing stunts for stunt’s sake, but Mike claims he’s doing it in the name of “engineering”, for lack of a better word. There are already hours of video footage from countless space vehicles that show what he claims to want to photograph, To me, that makes him a fraud, since it’s obviously a stunt, and the taxpayer will pick up the bill for cleaning up the remains of his machine and his body.
