Now Boarding: Lawn Chair Air

This guy traveled almost two hundred miles in a lawn chair supported by helium balloons. In doing so, he's become my hero of the day. Not only has he fulfilled one of my childhood dreams (Mom, I told you it would work!), but he's also figured out a way to beat the ridiculous price of airline tickets.

Not to mention, your average lawn chair is a hell of a lot more comfortable than the medieval torture devices that pass for coach class airline seats. -- Cory Casciato
