A former coworker of mine was there. Given her habit of getting her FB profile hacked, I seriously had to check to see if it was real or not.

Critical condition with non-life threatening injuries?

Maybe I'm a little fuzzy on the concept of "critical condition".

The headline is a play on the movie title "Batman Begins"

The original Robin (Batman's sidekick) was DIck Grayson, who along with his parents was a circus performer.  His parents were killed when gangsters sabotaged the trapeze because the circus owner wouldn't pay protection money. Batman stopped him from going to police because the crime boss behind it would likely have Dick killed.  Batman told Dick about how his parents were also killed by a criminal. This common bond led to their partnership and Batman trained him into Robin.

Origin story for Robin of "Batman and Robin" fame involved his family (all part of the same trapeze act) dying. Which is where he got his acrobatic training.

Brilliant headline.

So many "don't get the headline" responses, I wonder if it'll affect "nothing is obscure on FARK." Over The Flying Graysons / Haly's Circus. Ugh. They should teach this in schools.

A fall from 25-40ft and no deaths.  They were really fortunate all things considered as any falls from that distance can result in fatal injuries depending on how you land.

Eh. I'm sorry it happened but the way those people treat animals, I can't conjure too much sympathy for people who work for the circus.

The Robin explanation was helpful to me.   I knew he was Batman's (Burt) ward, but not that he was a circus trapeezer.

I thought this was well explained in Batman & Robin, which was coincidentally the last time I ever heard someone say "Not."

Have you been in a coma?

TIL people still say "Not" like it's 1992 again.
