Blocked here?

Hum. My company's web-washer (FortiGuard) has blocked that as "other adult materials". What else lives on that server? And any reason it's not been put on YouTube?

Re: Blocked here?

Yup, same here.

"The website http://www.dumpert.nl/embed/6394742/6eb9eea8/ has a ScanSafe category rating of "Adult"."

So I have to use my imagination based on the information given to me.

Hummmmmm.

Can we be assured that no Raspberry Pis or Arduinos were harmed in the making of that video? I think we need to know.

(oh yes - brilliant.)

Record?

Don't think it's been declared an official record yet. I suspect that's because they're mulling over whether they have to do the usual speed record thing of asking him to repeat the feat in the opposite direction...

I salute your comic genius.

Is it not time there was an Oscar for work like this?

Hmmm....

Are you sure that was over Holland? The advert at the end if for a Model event in Vienna, and the flag on the retrieval buggy was decidedly Austrian.

Re: Hmmm....

Not conclusive I know but the view from the balloon suggests a very flat country, no sign of mountains or singing nuns so probably Holland not Austria.

P.S. Austrian jumper, Austrian flag?
