A French skydiver who was going to try to set a free-fall record had to give up because his balloon took off without him. Which is exactly how this blog would have handled it.

Surely, they're not suggesting that he has ... you know ...

Fournier appeared disappointed as left the capsule and walked to the hanger.

Key word: appeared

Resembles the circumstances that led up to D Day. Bluntly.

Classic case of premature evacuation...

"It is BALLOON!!!"

And wind gusts shredded two previous balloons. Riiiight.

Not that I blame him. That's how I'd handle it too, Dave.

I'd have far more respect for the man if, instead of a capsule, he rode up in a lawn chair (in flip-flops and cargo shorts and a wife beater T shirt).

I'd have far more respect for the man if he started from a town a little more manly than North Battleford. I mean, please.

At least start from Prince Albert.

North Battleford? Where the Hakawi, Chief?

Up up and away....

OH WAIT!!!!

There's no place like home, there's no place like ... merde.

It should be a great episode of "Corner Gas", a very funny Canadian comedy, taking place in Dog River, Saskatchewan, Canada

Le oops! Too bad he ran outta money or it may have been "Le Splat".

"Corner Gas is great! I love the cops and the mother. Funny stuff.

Ol' Michel cut or unclipped everything himself. Who, in their right mind, would do such a thing?! I betting the whole shebang was insured too!

*zips in*™

This is a great end to this story. I'd been following it.

Do you think as the balloon took off he said, "oops"?
