Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life. I thought of their unfathomable distance, and the slow inevitable drift of their movements out of the unknown past into the unknown future. H.G. Wells

That's awesome. I'm gonna get me a pair to commute to work with. At least the cops can't pull me over and give me a ticket.

I don't speak German but I'm pretty sure at the end he said, "...and boy, my arms are tired."

Yes, but it could have been a touch stronger than "boy", if it was the passage that I heard.

That was WAY cool.

It's Dutch, isn't it? I can hear the sounds, but I can never make out the words.

I have dreams I am doing this.. without any wings added to my arms.

It really looks like authentic. The huge surface area of the wings and the slow glide that the guy is able to achieve seem realistic, but could be faked I suppose.

No—the FAA would fine you for flying too low.

But, seriously—that's some cool stuff.

I agree, if it were that simple, we would all have been doing this for years.

As fake as the day is long.

Recently a german company managed to make a flying bird that just used its wings in a naturalistic way... can't find the film but it's quite beautiful.

Sounds legit to me. Duct tape fixes everything.

Not only is it fake, it's likely a viral marketing ploy.
