Presidential debates, Wall Street bailout, WaMU fail… At least someone is working on getting us all jetpacks…

Swiss adventurer Yves Rossy successfully crossed the English Channel using his homemade jet-propelled wing Friday, the first man to perform the feat. Rossy leapt from a plane more than 8,800 feet or a mile and a half from the ground, before firing up his jets. He made the 22-mile trip from Calais in France to Dover in England in a little under 15 minutes.
