Unless you have a large trampoline to land on.
Seriously, don’t try this at home. A four degree deviation in the vector of motion and you’ve got body parts everywhere.
I wonder if you could analyze popular last-words and phrases, what percentage would be; “Hey, watch this!!!”
And another contestant submits her name to the Darwin Awards.
Yep, a trampoline is not going to help to help rescue a body that’s smashed and wrapped around a pole …
I thought it was going to be a human slingslot with a trampoline at the landing area–er, as the target…
I just felt myself getting really ticked! Was that her family? Were they trying to kill her? Geez! How idiotic can you be?
It might not be quite as insane as it appears. The springiness of the tethers would tend to center the person between the posts. Also, the tracks in the grass indicate this is not the first attempt. Hopefully they used something a little less precious to test with first and we’re not just seeing the first successful horizontal bungee. But yeah, a failure of one side could make a horrid mess. Be a more unique way to die stupidly, however. (Is that what the point of extreme sport really is?)
Hmmmmmmmmmmmm………. bungee cords and ATVs………. who brought the vodka? I mean, you’d certainly have to be loaded to the point of flammability to try this, wouldn’t you?
Now I ask you: Why does this remind me of Sweeney Todd’s victims sliding down the chute and landing SPLAT on their heads in the basement?
