A crazy, nuts, insane, is this guy totally out of his mind?  professional skydiver made a 25,000 foot jump without a parachute, or anything also to slow his fall. Remarkably, he walked away without a scratch.

Luke Aikins — a 42-year-old skydiver from Graham, WA — performed the death-defying stunt as part of a primetime special on Fox Saturday.

Check out the incredible footage below, via Fox, of Aikins falling perfectly into a net that was only, according to NPR, about a third of the size of a football field.
