One guy from Connecticut has taken the “promposal” to new heights, literally.

High school students across the country have been coming up with creative ways of asking their dates to prom.

We’ve seen a guy stupidly pretend to be a suicide bomber and one kid who made a girl cry after she made fun of his elaborate road signs.

Eddie Staten wanted to do something extreme as well, and so he decided to express his love for his girlfriend by leaping out of a plane.

In the video, Staten holds up a sign that just reads “Talia, Prom?” It’s short, sweet and to the point, but apparently that was not enough.

The rest of the clip shows him skydiving with an instructor from a company called Skydive Danielson, who encourages his girlfriend to go with him.

“I hope she says yes,” Staten says while falling.

She did, according to NBC.

A guy named Darryl from Ohio discovered that his girlfriend was cheating on him in a rather strange way.

He found a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios in the sink, but they couldn't have been hers because she doesn't eat gluten. GASP! He also says he broke into her Facebook account afterwards confirming his suspicions.

So he decided to break up with her in an equally strange manner, requesting a video from musician Mac Lethal.

The final product: A cover of "Blank Space" by the Queen of Breakups, Taylor Swift.

Oh good, crazy Jaoquin Phoenix is back.

On the "Late Show with David Letterman" Monday night, Phoenix got into an insane yoga position called "harness of the hog" and then casually dropped some very big news: that he was getting married to his yoga instructor.

Wait… what?

But it turned out that whole part about getting engaged was a lie to make his story sound more interesting.

"I think like my life's so boring, and it seemed like something exciting to talk about, and I wanted the audience to like me," he told Good Morning America. "They really like people getting married."

Several years ago, a bearded Phoenix was a guest on Letterman in one of the most bizarre interviews of late night TV. The whole thing turned out to be a very elaborate hoax.

Love really is timeless.

Via Discovery: The skeletal remains of two lovebirds were uncovered, after being locked in a romantic embrace for the past 700 years.

Archeologists found the happy couple holding hands in an earthen grave during an excavation of a "lost" chapel in Leicestershire, England, researchers reported Thursday (Sept. 18).

"We have seen similar skeletons before from Leicester where a couple has been buried together in a single grave," Vicki Score, University of Leicester Archaeological Services (ULAS) project manager, said in a statement.

Sexual consent is something that you should always get from your partner before you bang. But is an app really the best way to go about getting it?

For starters, talk about a moodkiller. "Here, before we go any further, let me have you complete this form on my phone. So hawt."

Second, if someone is "pretty wasted," as one of the app's sobriety options reads, are they going to truthfully report said sobriety while they're drunk, knowing full well that marking "pretty wasted" kills the consent process? If you're drunk and ready, you're drunk and ready, and your phone yapping at you saying that you don't give consent is only liable to piss you off, not stop what you're about to do.

Third, if one party does in fact revoke consent mid-sex, what are you doing to do? Pull out your phone again and change your answer from "I'm Good2Go" to "No, Thanks?"

Fourth, tying into the last point, what is the app actually meant to accomplish from a legal perspective? How is someone going to prove that they revoked consent when they originally put "I'm Good2Go" at the start of the encounter?

"You see, Your Honor, I know I said that I was Good2Go, but then I changed my mind and was Bad2Go like five minutes in!" "Too bad! The app says you were Good2Go and that's it! Case closed!"

Last, but perhaps not least, I can barely type my lock screen password in while I'm drunk. Am I really going to be able choose consent, choose my (truthful) sobriety level, put in my phone number and create a password all as quickly as they claim you can? Unlikely.

All in all, sexual consent isn't just a good idea: it's mandatory. End of story. But bringing in a confusing app complete with phone numbers, passwords, and dubious legal authority might not be the best way to get it.

Plus it just ends up reminding me of this:

Jarrod Allen is just a dude with a rockin' beard and a whole lot of free time. Free time that he uses to make glorious parodies of women's Tinder profile pics. For science, of course.
