Subby, when I was a kid we were all doing this exact same thing, the only difference being that we were doing on asphalt playgrounds with exposed electrical wires on one side and a jungle gym with unfinished, rusty metal edges on the other. And more than a few of us had scissors in our pockets. And yet, somehow, we all survived. But I suppose you and yours need a safety helmet to get out of bed now. A nation of pansies, that's what we've become, and I weep for the future.

That doesn't mean it's safe to do.

well...not all of you. But the ones who didn't can't really talk about it.

They were the weak ones, the ones who drifted to the rear of the pack and were devoured by the lions of fate. Their passing strengthened us all.

And don't forget we went to school with thermoses lined with glass that shattered into millions of slivery death shards the first time you dropped your lunchbox. And parents would just tell 6 year olds to shake it first and if you hear any sound, don't drink it.

They're like little monkeys. That was cool.

This.
 
2012-01-08 07:53:15 PM  
Yeah, unnecessary outrage. I'd totally let my kid do that.

/and be cheering the entire time
//might need to wear a pair of brown pants, but the kid doesn't need to know that
 
2012-01-08 08:04:51 PM  
Yeah that was cool and the kids looked like they were having fun. The point of doing it is that it isn't completely safe.
 
2012-01-08 08:09:52 PM  
Yep.. I'd let my kid do it also if he wanted to. Without risk, there is no reward.. There is also no failure but who the fark wants to live life neither trying to fail or succeed.
 
2012-01-08 08:10:51 PM  
My life isn't safe.
My job isn't safe.

Those people appeared to be having great fun....some injuries,and fun. Joyful fun.

Kids are much fatter and weaker today. It's like building a pyramid out of butter on a July afternoon.

That sounds tasty. Thus, I conclude butter-covered children must taste good.

Wait until subby finds out that outsiode the borders of the US people actually eat pupies and kittens...and horses...and marry their cousins at the gae of 14 and bear children etc etc....

Such a sheltered life is this American lifestyle.....

When ya think about it, a lot of people would get squished but the kids at the top would have a soft landing. I don't see any danger to the kids. Those peeps at the 2nd and 3rd tiers, I dunno.

Look the U.S. builds human pyramids too! I couldn't be prouder.

I am well aware of his comment style, but I thought that one might have been at least partly serious.

Children are made of rubber and bounce. And they were wearing HELMETS. What more safety can you possibly ask for?

I'd worry more about the older adults down below that have the people above them crashing down on them.

"In the Hills, the Cities"

It's interesting, really. The act would be completely unsafe without the group. However, because humans are squishy, they make a nice mat to fall in. You, in essence, fall a lot short distance because of the meat piling up under you. Even if you topple sideways rather than straight down, you still land on meat. It's the perfect evolution of the ubiquitous "Trust Fall."

Plus, it gives me a great idea for increasing the safety around my trampoline. BODIES!

2012-01-08 10:23:30 PM  
Hey, the kids were wearing helmets, so what's all the fuss about?
 
2012-01-08 10:42:28 PM  
I told you I was hardcore.
 
2012-01-08 11:07:56 PM  
Am I the only one who wishes he was in the audience, armed with a slingshot and a pocketful of 1/4" ball bearings? Nothing like making a house of tards collapse in a mangled heap.
 
2012-01-08 11:24:27 PM  
Dangerous, yes, but I'd let my kid do this before letting her compete in a pageant. Human pyramid seems far less emotionally traumatizing than Toddlers & Tiaras.
 
2012-01-08 11:44:15 PM  
Because a child who spends 50+ hours a week playing Xbox or watching TV is much "safer" in the long run..
 
2012-01-09 12:12:03 AM  
It's probably safer than the running of the bulls.
 
2012-01-09 12:44:05 AM  
Turquoise team KICKS ASS. I would do either the bearded man or the main pyramid support right now.

Because those are the only two options.

Good to see Tommy Chong got a new gig. That was him at the very end, wasn't it?

At any rate, if the kid survives they will not have any fear of heights ever again.

Panic disorder = I'M NEVER DOING THIS EVER.

/ Not because of my fear of heights. I can conquer that, though that's real.

Subby, besides soccer, this is the national sport of Catalonia. It's not only a very strong and healthy tradition that encourages teamwork and strength, but it has recently been named a World Heritage activity by UNESCO.

It's better than beauty pageants.

looks fun, but was still thinking that some of those people are getting their jollies feeling people up when they go up the pyramid..

LOL--just my crazy mind free-associating. Hmmm, this would be banned outright in the US but T&T is a top show. Something's decidedly wrong here...

Another thought that popped into my head. Read that story nearly 20 years ago and it still haunts me.

Sorry, did a quick search in the thread for the author and not the title. All credit for remembering and mentioning someone else's work first goes rightfully to you.

Because I sure wouldn't want to steal your thunder or anything.
