The World's Largest Rope Swing

You might wanna mute the sound... unless you LIKE hip-hop.  Yeah, my biases are showing.

Heights ain't my thang but that looked pretty danged cool.  From the Usual Source for viral vids.


  1. Very cool indeed. Of course if I tried that those screams of joy that you hear from the others...would be screams of terror from me. I don't do heights either and can't see the need to jump off of a perfectly stable platform.

    Then again, I don't see the need to climb that platform.

    And I liked the music, sounds alot like Eminem who I do like. Sorry. :-)

  2. Thanks for the warning--I kept the sound off. I also watched another of the vids, the one about the human slingshot. Geez. You've heard the joke, you might be a redneck if you have a relative whose last words were, "watch this...." After viewing these vids, I don't think rednecks have cornered the market on stupid. Yeah, I know. They're young. And there's a lot of hot looking girls around. That does tend to remove the "it would be stupid to do that" block from a young male brain.

  3. This will eventually end in a Wile E. Coyote kind of accident.

  4. Immediate mute, thanks for that.

    Looks like some terrifying fun.

  5. Very cool. Jesse is packing her bags - says she wants to do something death defying, too.

  6. Buck, I'm pretty sure I have stood right there in that very spot. That must be in The Arches National Park.

    Lots of Mormons out there.

    Just sayin'...

    I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that is the very same Arch that I climbed to the top of with my bare hands and feet. I scribbled "Andy was here," and etched out a "Kilroy face" next to it, at the peak. All of the while tourists of lesser gumption stood idly by and watched (mostly speaking French, and pointing).

    Maybe not, though.


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
