Here are two videos from different positions (the side and in the travel direction) of a car doing a successful, intentional back flip…and the driver surviving. What’s most interesting to me is one of the comments below it on youtube, where Barry doesn’t think the driver did much more than push his foot on the throttle. Other viewers were more impressed and gave Barry a lot of flack back. I think courage is worth a lot. I mean what does a parachutist do? Just pull a rip cord, right Barry?

Barry: What more did the guy do than press the accelerator? All thats needed is a little courage. No skill involved. Some engineer designed the ramps, and calculated what speed he needed to reach. Someone built and designed his car. He is encased in a metal cage, and all he did is press his right foot.
