Across the Intertubewebs, this fellow’s endeavor’s being labeled as a failure (FAIL, as they say). We say nonsense. When your airbag + tire + car seat adventure gets you 10 feet in the air it’s all win, regardless of how you come down. As far as we’re concerned, it deserves a MISSION ACCOMPLISHED banner.

    With the elimination of the NASA manned space exploration program, the people have taken it upon themselves to continue the endeavor. What you see here is just preliminary testing.

    I salute this brave individual for engaging in this experiment, and his cronies for egging him on while safely remaining earthbound. Yeah, when the boss isn't looking, all kinds of shenanigans go down in shops like this. When I was in the National Guard as a Deuce and a Half mechanic, we'd toss loaded mousetraps to each other ("Hey! Catch!"), throw firecrackers all over the place, roll brownies into turds and leave them lying around, all kinds of really intelligent and mature activities. This was your tax dollars at work, at least if you lived in Utah at the time.

    He walked away from it – definitely not a fail.

    You can tell the good shops from the bad, they gave him a helmet.
    Although in hindsight he could have been wearing it already.

    The only FAIL is not having that thing surrounded by mattresses.

    Oh boy, that was, um, something.
    Thank you Internet! Your magic surely is great and wonderful. You can capture moments of time, to be cherished forever. Or not.

    There's something about the arc that this guy takes as he launches that makes it so hilarious.

      If he rotated a little more he would've landed an epic back flip.
      My only question is when is my turn.

        Yeah, me too, but let's do it off a diving board into a pool. Let's do cannonballs when we hit, and bet on who splashes the most.

      Thank you Mr Science for the use of the -ure in the article. The use of the word fail on the internet annoys me no end.
