Think it takes guts to race girly cars?

Pishhhhhh!

Check out this guy who plans to step out of a balloon from 120,000 feet (that's 23 miles straight up kids), and skydive.

Of course Red Bull is paying for it.

Yep, I can't imagine they sell that much Red Bull.

There are so many things that can go wrong at that altitude - all fatal. Not really good advertising if a dead man falls to earth.

Ive been following this for some time now... Felix seems really scared when he talks about the free fall, like he knows something is going to happen.
