I recall a co-worker of mine who told me about her father's mid-life crisis wherein he downloaded a DIY jet pack kit off the Internet and built something similar to this. He then spent his days shy of this speed record, cruising the skies of the Raleigh-Durham area of central North Carolina pretty much having the greatest adventure of his life.
His wife and kids were obviously thrilled with the brilliant results of his mid-life crisis because the bar is already set pretty high considering the phenomena generally metes out cool byproducts like fast cars, motorcycles, and new girlfriends. How do you top those? Jet Packs!
