Darwin Award just around the corner

What’s the most relaxing way from Oregon to Idaho? Of course, in a lawn chair surrounded by lots of balloons. Kent Couch – no, I’m not going to make a joke about lawn chair and Couch – sat down and lifted off.

From the BBC:

“I’d go to 30,000 feet if I didn’t shoot a balloon down periodically,” he said.

In addition to the blow pipe and air gun he took a pole to pull in balloons, a parachute, some GPS equipment and some eggs and chocolate.

Using a BB gun to control your altitude? Sounds like a great way to achieve a Darwin Award!
