The "Iron Man" movie's special-effects guys had a lot of fun with testing v1.0 of his boot jets...

If you're a classic-car collector, though, you'll probably wince at some of the footage. But just tell yourself that it's all CGI & plywood...

I'd need a bucket to hang around my neck to protect the people on the ground.

The link didn't work but no matter, a picture is worth a thousand words.

As mom always said, "let's not and say we did." I saw the picture and am checking that off the bucket list.

Pretty wild. If you missed a turn they'd need the Steve Fosset search crew to find your remains.

On the other hand, if I was one of the guys he almost nudged over a cliff on his way by, it'd have taken him a week or two to remove the bicycle suppository after I caught up with him at the bottom.
