WTF?? I've never seen a plane design like that. It actually flew??

Appears to be a glacier. Must be Greeland. It's the only glacier left on the planet, right?

Don't know about the glacier but yes I think it could fly, just a few more HP . That said above the pilot/ wing structure seems a design for doom. (hey I work on lawnmowers what the fuck do I know)

I don't want to be critical but JFC. I could spit farther. I'm fucking 57 and I could piss farther. Give they guy a fucking dress. He should fall to his young worthless death.

Hey! Fucker with the headcam! You're not in a hurry to get down this deadly cliff in the mud and rain are you?

I'd be tempted to bump him. Just one tiny sneeze. :twisted:

↑ Nice. There's a photographer specializing in that kind of pic, but his name escapes me right now.

More classical, forced perspective:

BBC wrote:Chinese rooftop climber dies in 62-storey fall

Wu Yongning had amassed thousands of followers on the social network Weibo for his dramatic short videos showing him perched atop tall buildings without the use of safety equipment.

Concern grew among his fans when he stopped posting updates in November.

It has now emerged that he died after falling from a 62-storey building in the city of Changsha.

Chinese media report that he was participating in a challenge to win a substantial amount of prize money.

The 26-year-old died on 8 November, but his death was only confirmed by his girlfriend in a post on Chinese social media a month later.

And then there's the old joke about a tower climber, who falling to his death from the top, passes his work mate who asks "How's it going" and he replies "So far, so good.)

The astonishing point is that we don't hear more about such cases (which certainly exist).
