My gosh good golly gee!

Who'd a thunk it?

1944 Nicholas Alkemade falls 5,500 m without a parachute & lives.

Not only did SGT Alkemade do this, but so did Lt. Chisov and Sgt Magee!

There are other stories about men who rode down the wreckage of shot down aircraft. Read about them here.

If you've got to use up your lottery luck on something other than the lottery - this certainly fits the bill!

Hat tip to Strategy Page.

While you're there, check out this video of a new anti-crash barrier intended to stop suicide bombers in trucks.

Hat tip to FecesFlingingMonkey for that one!
