I can’t even decide whether this is clever or absurd.

25-year-old Jakob Aungiers has come up with possibly the most bizarre of business ideas.

Jakob started skydiving many years ago and now he has launched “Bottled At Altitude,” a service which sells bottled fresh air that he captures during his dives.

A London-based finance worker, Jakob thought of his unique business idea and started marketing his products to people online. In fact, he now has a dedicated website for his business.

Meet entrepreneur Jakob Aungliers, skydiver and bottled air collector.

What Jakob does is to jump at 15,000ft while carrying a 250 ml-bottle, pop up a cork on it before opening his parachute, and then safely land on the ground with the bottled item. He believes that the product will appeal mostly to people living in polluted areas.

Each bottle is sold for £199 ($290) and is available online through his “Bottled At Altitude” website.

Jakob explained the expensive price tag by saying:

“It’s not just a bottle of air. Physically it is, but you are getting a premium product. It has got that little bit of spiritual and symbolic value.”

Jakob defended his product saying “It’s not just a bottle of air.”

He even added:

“Air in the countryside is fresh, but not quite as fresh as air from two and a half miles up.

For people living in polluted cities like London or Manchester – or even New York and Hong Kong – to have a little bottle of freshness and pureness is brilliant.

Just to have that freshness and pureness in your house in their house can help, or even to have that there to open in a time of need.

Also, it is something that take a bit of time and effort and determination and bravery to do, so it has that value.”

Aside from the bottle, each buyer also gets a video of Jakob, taken using a Go Pro camera, as he captures the air. The product also comes with a certificate of authenticity.

“Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair!”

Dashik Gubanova Freckle has probably been told this line a hundred of times already. But this Russian woman isn’t trapped in some creepy tower, isolated, and unknown to the rest of the world. In fact, she has become quite popular since she posted her pictures, which consequently gained her hundreds of thousands of followers on social media.

For more than 13 years, she refused to cut her gorgeous locks, which now reach the lower half of her shins. Freckle has been dubbed as the “real-life Rapunzel” by over 104,000 people who follow her on Instagram since she started documenting and sharing updates about her exceptionally long, brown mane.

Taking public transportation is usually the most economical way of traveling around but yes - let’s face it - it does have its share of inconveniences.

For example, it is sometimes unavoidable to share a bus with some annoying passengers such as those who speak too loudly on the phone. Or those plane passengers who place their feet on the back of your seat.

This group of bus passengers in Guangzhou, the capital of Guangdong Province in China, had to go through an unusual hassle that perhaps many of us have never experienced while riding a public vechile.
