For your viewing pleasure Wednesday

Station manager of Jersey City-based WFMU will fly in balloon-lifted lawn chair if donors contribute $180 K. "I weigh 180 pounds and we found out that it would take 180 balloons to lift me off the ground . So this just seemed like the obvious thing to do."

They have a $180k shortfall until the end of the year, so this is the stunt. One balloon for every $1,000 raised. It will be broadcast via webcam - 9:00 AM to 12:00 AM Eastern time.

Did he raise the money? Did he fly????

Alas, he did not. He got enough on him to kind of tug on him, but not enough to go aloft. Too bad, because I would have liked to see the 13 foot balloon inflated.
