Bird man competitor: I believe I can fly

March 30, 2008

Birdman competitor. 13 Birdman competitors plunged into the Yarra River in Australia on March 9th -- despite the river having almost double the safe level of E coli. It was won for the third year in a row by Carrum Downs amateur pilot Michael Paul. Mr Paul, 38, flew 17 meters, a metre shy of the Moomba record, in a mono-winged creation.

I do like these mad-cap competitions. It’s part of what makes humans so different. Good, clean, harmless and funny.
