Bored with that same old business meeting? Why not try a dinner in the sky? But if it's a view you're after, you could probably take a few of your clients here for the same price. (flash & sound alert; film clip on main site is slow to load)

At first I thought the whole thing was in free-fall with the "umbrella" being a parachute of sorts. Now THAT would be cool. But this is still pretty interesting.

You know that trend where airlines have been giving you less and less food when you fly?

This is the opposite of that.

OK, new rule. I think the entire internet world should widen our collective interpretation of "NSFW" to include any links that open with a thunderous blast of music when your system, at work, is set to a full-time monitoring of a national television news channel "subscripted" to your screen's lower right corner. Beginning RIGHT NOW!!!

I'm just saying...

Mike D - try dropping a napkin over your speaker. It does wonders for Ogre Lawless.

I suppose this is as good a time as any to announce my partnership with Allain Ducasse. In the fall of 2007, we plan to unveil our new luxurious vision: patrons will combine the exquisite pleasures of haute cuisine with intesne g-forces in our white tablecloth gravitron, and afterwards retire to our desert coaster,, where they can sip the finest tawny port and a fine selection of single malt scotches at speeds of up to 225 miles per hour.

This is a wonderful contraption that the world has been in need of for a long time. Although I rather hope their Suspending-People-In-The-Air-For-Dinner know-how is better than their Making-Websites-That-Are-Easy-and-Speedy-to-Use know-how.

MikeD: Maybe we should just label work Not Safe for Internets.

Metafilter: Until someone has to go pee.

(This would make for an amazing wedding reception. Just pare down your guest list, invite your top-20, and invite Adam Sandler to do the Wedding Singer from the OTHER floating entertainment platform.)

What a glorious idea. I'm guessing, from the product-placement, that San Pellegrino has put a bunch of money behind it so it just might get somewhere. I really hope so.

Talk about a captive audience.

Snakes on a sky dinner.

My neighbour had his dinner in the sky recently.
But he didn't know how to light a gas barbecue.
