Improve your life, one step at a time
My advice; you should totally do it! Don't attach it to anything with a motor, or jump off anything taller than a few feet. There is a very high probability that you will get hurt, maybe even break an arm or something, but you will probably not get high enough to kill yourself. It is not unrealistic for a hang-glider made from trash bags, duct-tape, and wood to get you a few feet off the ground before it falls apart, or you realize how unstable it is and crash or chicken out. Either way it is much more worth doing than sitting around playing video games. Wear a helmet (of course) and pads, or at least duct-tape a pillow to your chest and back. Make sure you bring a friend to shoot a video to reference when you are telling the story to your grand-children.If you get 4-5 feet off the ground, you will be a YouTube star; if you get more than 10 everyone will say you are an i###t (apparently that word is banned).
