    A dangerous stunt was performed by a Calgary man on Sunday, soaring high above the ground in an ordinary plastic chair attached to helium-filled balloons. The performer has been detained by police, charged with causing danger to life.

    In a life-imitates-Pixar’s ‘Up’ scenario, it reportedly took 110 large balloons about 2 meters in diameter to lift Daniel Boria, 26, skyward in a lawn chair, Canada’s CBC reports. He claims it took months to plan the stunt he claims was PR for his cleaning products company.

    Boria had a parachute on and planned to use it to descend on to the Stampede Park grounds.

    “It was incredible. It was the most surreal experience you can ever imagine. I was just by myself on a $20 lawn chair up in the sky above the clouds,” CBC cited Boria as saying.

    Pretty ballsy as that parachute obviously wouldn't work until he reached a pretty high altitude..

    some redneck did this years ago... he had a bb gun with him, and planned to shoot out the balloons one at a time to gradually return to earth.

    Things like this make me wonder what might have been.
