Lawn Chair Balloons

The term TSTL (Too Stupid To Live) is a perfect fit for father of five, Kent Couch. On 2007-07-07, he attached some balloons to a lawn chair and set of on a six hour flight which he described on CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) Radio DNTO (Definitely Not The Opera). He discarded all he could to gain height. His friend barely managed to persuade him not to discard his 13.61 kg (30 lbs) parachute. The flight was not going well and he had to abandon it. Unfortunately, the parachute did not open. The only thing he tried to make the parachute open was pray. It didn’t.
