If it's proven to be genuine then COOL...REALLY COOL :)

I've seen base jumpers free- flying on documentaries. Don't think I am being mean here. I am so envious that I could die. I want to do this so bad I could scream. Thank you for the cool video! Woot Woot!!!!!!

pretty cool....don't know exactly what he was saying, but it had to be kind of overwhelming knowing that there is no known record of man being able to do that before now.....I hope that was real.....I have had dreams of flying since I was a little kid....would be cool to try.

If its real flight it is intresting from the point that a bird we think gets its lift to stay aloft, from a series of advantages that a human hasn't got. Blue.

It's a hoax

d6fer said about 3 years ago ...

well that's depressing....scary too....kind of makes you wonder if you can trust any media....how do you know if you are watching augmented reality? Or hearing it.

Something didn't run true about it. Something about the way it took off. Shame really.

Climate Change is testable and refutable. This is really simple, and I'm surprised it's even a point of contention. Example: CO2 causes warming, and more CO2 will lead to a warmer earth. Test: Look at historical data, and see if warmer periods read the rest
