I'm Not Really Impressed

Maybe it's my crippling fear of heights or the fact that this sounds really dumb, but this story of 47-year-old Kent Couch flying about 200 miles in a lawn chair with balloons giving the lift doesn't really impress me. I mean, it's impressive that he harnessed the power of helium or something, but I'm not really understanding why I'm reading about this at CNN, under the uncreative heading of "Funny News". Also, I'm just not really grooving on it. I guess it's just me though. Someone somewhere read this article and decided that they want to be an astronaut or an Air Force test pilot or something now.
