WWW: Airborne Couch

In this edition of Weird World Wednesday (WWW), I submit to you this picture and caption:Balloons suspend Kent Couch in a lawn chair as he floats in the skies near Bend, Ore., Saturday. Couch, on his way to Idaho, carried a global positioning system device, a two-way radio, a digital camcorder and a cell phone.

This event is not to be confused with the 2003 movie titled Danny Deckchair ... which was a fictionalized version of an Australian flying man ... based on a true story but his balloons were yellow ... and the movie was pretty enjoyable ... from what I remember :)

  1. Is that even possible!!? I mean, after you get high enough the air temperature drops and the helium (I assume it's helium) reacts kinda wonky and won't support him.

    Stange dude, him. I sure hope he doesn't run into a flock of seagulls or something.
