Felix Baumgartner is an Austrian skydiver and BASE jumper.
He holds the world record for the highest parachute jump from a building when he jumped from the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur.
He set the world record for the lowest skydive ever when he jumped just 95 feet from the hand of the 'Christ the Redeemer' statue in Rio de Janeiro.
In 2003, he became the first person to skydive across the English Channel.
He has a number of other skydiving and BASE jumping 'firsts' to his name, the latest of which, weather permitting, will be his 'highest sky dive' world record attempt, which will see him jump 120,000 ft from a helium balloon, becoming the first parachutist to break the sound barrier in the process.
And yet, despite all these indisputable achievements, I just find it impossible to get past the fact his name sounds like 'Bum Gardener'.
You can watch Bum Gar...sorry, Baumgartner jump out of a giant helium balloon here, assuming there's not a tiny gust of wind scuppering the whole thing.

N.B. It's also worth mentioning that this man exists.
