JetpackMan flies English Channel

In dark times of presidential nominees bailing out on debates to help fuck up the bailing out of our "dieing economy" we need inspiring and comedic distractions. Thank god for Yves Rossy and Sarah Silverman.

Yves Rossy (Swiss 49) flew across the English Channel Friday in less than 10 minutes. He became the first man to fly across solo. He did so wearing his supersweet jetpack that got him going up to 125mph. Got damn. Go to BBCNEWS to watch the clip of the flight.

Too bad I couldn't embed the videos onto the blog. But, they are both worth watching. Sarah Silverman is funny, forreals. I don't drink all that kool-aid hate.
