OFF TOPIC: DB COOPER MADE IT, BABY!

New, 18 comments

Or at least his chute did, possibly, maybe, sorta. Whatever. Someone finds a buried parachute, we'll assume DB Cooper, the man who hijacked a plane in November of 1971 and jumped from the same plane with $200K in cash, made it off the plane, and hightailed it to Mexico to bathe in tequila, mujeres, and bathtubs of pesos.

We've been fascinated with the case since Unsolved Mysteries--your nightmare fuel of 1988 that couldn't film a man walking down a road without ominous low synthesizer notes and a smoky filter--did this segment on him.

He ordered two bourbon and waters during the hijacking: that's Kenny Loggins/Michael McDonald smooth there. Part two is after the jump.
