A man flies hundreds of feet through the air using a jet pack of...... Compressed air?

    ErrrRRRR, I realy don't know what to say to that. That remains me of the asian gentlemen that decided to use one of their buddies as target practice for a roman candle!

    I can't beleive he got that far off the ground!

    Well after the load he probably dropped when he took off he is probably 10lbs. lighter now.

    That crap just isn't real...
    If you guys believed it was then that was sad...
    First off when he took off the compressed air actually did push him... up a little bit..
    But because of how he was positioned it pushed him more downwards. that is until the string or rope that we dont see restricted his downward motion and then turned it into haphazard spinning...

    Upward propulsion is alot harder and it takes alot more energy than a couple bottles of compressed air.
    and besides that... you also need guidance.

    Welll... then again.. the force IS strong within the orient ::::28::

    He has a point. It has got to be fake. First, his trajectory is off. Spinning that much would cause him to plummet to the water in seconds. Next, it is not physically possible. He would need over 2400 newtons of force to lift him that high. From air, yeah right.

    But you seem to forget, it is magic Asian anime compressed air with a few Hy-Dokens thrown in. ::::39::

     Already been done... for real.... in America. Years ago, during a halftime show at one of the Superbowels, a guy in a Jet Pack lifted off. He went maybe 50 feet high, hovered, and was able to control where he went. The compressed gases/fuel got used up very quick! But if he had say... a looong hose attached to his jet pack, he probably could stay airborne for hours and hours! image

    Hrm...I was even under the impression that they created a type of jetpack that would be commercially acceptable. Consumed little fuel, and was elevated by two gargantuous turbines about a arms length out, on each side.
