Do You Have a Deck Chair?

Here is a fantastic story of 'Lawn Chair Man', some say he is an urban myth, do you believe this is a true story?

Larry Walters; Soared to Fame on Lawn Chair
Back in 1982, Larry Walters achieved fame by piloting a lawn chair attached to helium balloons 16,000 feet above Long Beach. Incidentally, his Lawn chair was christened "Inspiration I".

What happened was Larry joined 42 weather grade balloons to an aluminium lawn chair. He then filled the balloons by pumping in helium. Two assistants then launched his chair by untying the Guy ropes. Larry prepared for his flight by packing a bottle of soda, a parachute and a portable CB radio to alert air traffic to his presence. He took a camera but later admitted, that he was so paralysed by the view I didn't take any pictures.

As a truck driver, Larry had no pilot or balloon training, so it was all a big adventure when the chair soared three miles high to 16,000 feet. Unfortunately, or on reflection, fortunately he was in an air traffic lane and at least two airline pilots spotted him and contacted the Federal Aviation Administration.

Once the shock and the novelty wore off, Larry started to get cold. Fortunately he had a plan, this was to burst the balloons with his trusty pellet gun and thus descend gracefully back to earth. Unfortunately he had no control on the decent and the balloons draped over power lines, blacking out a Long Beach neighbourhood.

The adventure cost Larry Walters a $1,500 fine from the FAA. However he earned the top prize from the Bonehead Club of Dallas. Larry also claimed the altitude record for gas-filled clustered balloons. In due course Larry was invited to appear on "The Tonight Show" and was flown to New York to be on "Late Night With David Letterman," which he later described as "the most fun I've ever had."

"I didn't think that by fulfilling my dream that I would create such a stir," he later told The Times, "and make people laugh." Larry gave up his truck-driving job and went on the lecture circuit, remaining in demand at motivational seminars. But he said he never made much money from his innovative flight and was glad to keep his simple lifestyle. He gave his the aluminium lawn chair to children after he landed, but he later regretting giving away his pride and joy.

The key to Larry's suicide in 1993 may have been his Army service in Vietnam, Walters never married and had no children. He is survived by his mother and two sisters.


There have been numerous urban myths surrounding 'Lawn Chair Man'. But the above account is based on his Obituary in 1993.

The History of Profiling

The day it all started was March 6, 1836. On that fateful day, Davy Crockett woke up and rose from his bunk on the main floor of the Alamo. He then walked up to the observation post along the west wall of the fort.

William B. Travis and Jim Bowie were already there, looking out over the top of the wall. These three great men gazed at the hordes of Mexicans moving toward them.

With a puzzled look on his face, Crockett turned to Bowie and said: "Jim, are we having some landscaping done today"?

Rules to Live by Version 002

When confronted by a difficult problem, you can solve it more easily by reducing it to the question, "How would the Jack Reacher handle this"?

My reality check bounced.

Everybody is somebody else's weirdo.

I don't suffer from stress. I am a carrier.

People who go to conferences are the ones who shouldn't.

If it wasn't for the last minute, nothing would get done.

When you don't know what to do, walk fast and look worried.

I don't have an attitude problem, you have a perception problem.

Accept that some days you are the pigeon and some days the statue.

On the keyboard of life, always keep one finger on the escape key.

A pat on the back is only a few centimetres from a kick in the butt.

Tell me what you need, and I'll tell you how to get along without it.

I love deadlines. I especially like the whooshing sound they make as they go flying by.

You can go anywhere you want if you look serious, wear a white coat and carry a clipboard.

I can only please one person each day. Today is not your day. Tomorrow is not looking good either.

Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

After any salary raise, you will have less money at the end of the month than you did before.

Eat one live toad the first thing in the morning and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day.

Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky, and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling?

Needing someone is like needing a parachute. If they aren't there the first time, chances are you won't be needing them again.

"Excuse me", she said "but were you in the war"?

"Yah, I was in the infantry".

"Would you mind to answer a few questions for a newspaper article"?

No, I wouldn't mind at all".

"When you came home, when the war was over, what was the first thing you did"?

"I screwed my wife." Pekka said bluntly.

"After that. I mean, what did you do after that"?
