Some people will try anything

Brave or foolish?

I say foolish! Even if he is a specialist in "cluster balloons."

There are safer ways to cross the Atlantic.

At least he's attached to the balloons in a lifeboat this time - instead of in an office chair:
On previous flights Trappe travelled on an office chair suspended by the balloons. On this trip, he is travelling inside a small yellow lifeboat. "If I touch down on water then the attempt will be over as it will be impossible to take off again, but the boat will keep me alive," he said.

I'd say that guy has an Eval Knieval Complex.

Remember him?

I guess these daredevils don't feel alive unless they put themselves i great danger, right?

I did some stupid things when I was younger. But never anything this risky!

Foolish.

Brave is riding in the van with Mrs. AOW driving on an unbanked track.
