Off the charts

As I was looking at the FICO simulator, I saw that there was something higher than 800. They called it Off the Charts.
Is this even possible? If so, do you know someone who is?
If you can't do it right the first time, then maybe skydiving isn't your thing

The FICO scoring range is: 300-850. I got this from the great "Credit Education" section of the menu bar:......................

* FICO® scores are your credit rating
* They range from 300-850, higher is better
* Most lenders base approval on them
* Higher scores mean lower interest rates
* FICO® scores are calculated based on your rating in five general categories: Components of the FICO® score
o Payment history - 35%
o Amounts owed - 30%
o Length of credit history - 15%
o New credit - 10%
o Types of credit used - 10%
* We’re the inventor of the FICO® score
* We’re the only site offering all 3 of your FICO® scores
* The median FICO® score in the U.S. is 723
