Strewth, He’s Mad as a Cut Snake!

According to today's Independent, an Australian man yesterday became the world's oldest skydiver, beating the record previously set by a 94 year old Norwegian. Frank Moody, aged 101 years old, accepted a drunken dare from his mates and jumped in tandem with an experienced skydiver from 9,900 feet.

I'm not quite sure which part of the story is the most awe inspiring - that he dived out of a plane, or that 101 year olds are still daft enough to accept drunken bets! Guess I'll have a go myself - perhaps in 70 years or so...
