Sometimes it's worth paying homage to the true pioneers - the men and women willing to push the boundaries of what is physically possible, the few among us who think it's worth advancing human-kind forward through their lateral thinking and big ideas.
Take, for example, the Canadian man who filled 100 balloons with £6,000 of helium at a rodeo fair and attached them to a lawn chair - flying like an eagle in a bid to promote his cleaning company. A judge fined him £16,000 after he pleaded guilty to the 'dangerous operation of an aircraft', but I think history will judge him kindly.
It's not often you stumble on that type of innovation, however today I came upon a video which clearly showed an individual walking the fine line between madness and genius.
Take a look at it here...

Have you ever seen so many blackheads gone at once? Wow, what a technique, what a dermatological trailblazer.
Of course we couldn't leave it there, we tracked down Jacob Acosta, a 23-year-old cable dispatcher from Los Angeles and the star of video, and asked him what inspired him to push the blackhead removal game to the next level.
Speaking exclusively to LADbible, he explained: "I had always seen these videos about people using those blackhead removers and getting rid of each one, one by one.
"I was tired of poking the hell out of my nose and ended up pushing up against it with some force and a few of them had finally came out. So I decided to push with a bit more force and - bam - all the filaments started coming out."
However, it wasn't all fun and games for Jacob. He describes how removing the filament his way is quite painful, feeling 'as if I worked out my nose for a few days'. This means that he only does it 'every 3 or so months'.
He also speculated that the shape of his nose could make it easier to apply the technique.
"Having huge nose might help," he said. "More surface area most likely means more pressure points to actually get all of the gunk out."
He added that only certain people were cut out to remove blackheads his way: "You would probably need some type of pain tolerance to get it done because there is a lot of pressure and it makes my eyes water at time."
Finally, to those wanting to follow in his footsteps he offered some final sage-like advice: "Don't break your nose trying to get shit out of it."
Thanks for that Jacob, keep doing what you do you absolute legend,
