Jet Pack Guy Crosses English Channel

I don't expect you mere wingless mortals to truly appreciate the accomplishment of a pilot who just crossed the 35km English Channel with a jetpack—that'd be like someone who can't read claiming to love the study of Cuneiform—but from one rocket man to another, I salute you, Yves Rossy.

Actually, what's that I see? A parachute? You mean he didn't die? Oh, then I don't need to be polite about this at all. [CNN -Thanks Geoff!]
