How awesome is this…

Some dutch guy wearing a rather sweet looking jet pack just flew across the English Channel, or La Manche if you’re French, in less than 10 minutes.  Check out the video in the link above.

I think this has just been added to the list of things I want to do but will never get around to before I die.

Though I do wish there was a slightly easier way of starting off and finishing.  It’s hardly convenient to have to board a plane if you wanted to fly across town to meet your friends, and in comparison to a jet pack, landing by parachute is decidedly lame.

But still. how awesome is that.
