Felix Baumgartner's record-setting leap from the very edge of space, on Sunday, was dazzling. But as one post at 9gag points out, Baumgartner is far from the first man to take a leap of faith with an uncertain landing.

Personally, the image makes me envision a whole team of haystack-carriers swarming over New Mexico, running to and fro Looney Tunes-style, trying to get the haystacks down in the right location.

Probably for the best that Baumgartner had his high-tech equipment. Maybe Connor can borrow it in Assassin's Creed III.
