Birdman flies again!

This is Yves Rossy, also known as Rocketman, also known as Fusionman, presumably because there is no word in Swiss for “Rocket?” I dunno.

Doesn’t this look like fun?

Yves Rossy, the Birdman of Switzerland

Once they get those Sharks With Frickin’ Laser Beams On Their Heads perfected, my wish list will be complete.

  1. Fun? not really – he’s relying on technology, I’m an engineer and have worked in factories assessing productivity and quality procedures. It’s a wonder I fly at all.

  2. Yes, but he made this himself. So obviously he has faith in it. Of course, he might be insane, but he’s not dead yet. This wasn’t built out of scrap metal in China by a bunch of enslaved schoolchildren, though, that’s for sure.

  3. Oh, see, now you’re just splitting hairs. There is, in fact, NO word for “rocket” in the Swiss language. Is there? No. No, there is not.
