Really? What Will People Think Up Next?

Watch These Lunatics Use Parachutes To Fly Their Snowmobiles Around


By Eric Limer - Gizmodo

Bored? Canadian? Need something to do with those snowmobiles and parachutes you've got hanging around? Enter parasledding: the motor-sport that's exactly what it sounds like. As you can in this (sometimes-painfully-portrait-oriented) video, it combines all the joys of being on an extremely heavy and fast-moving vehicle and floating in the air with not all that much control over where you're going.

It's like being the villians in that James Bond chase, but without the fans and look how well it turned out for them. Which is to say: it looks like blast.
