The more time you spend at work and the more time you spend socializing outside of your home, the fewer square feet you need.

Our exurban McMansions are monuments to introversion, not just excess.

good question..that zipline in the face seems to be lacking in safety like that.

There are no illegitimate children...only illegitimate parents.

Um, that post was talking about Fred ROGERS and Steve ROGERS.

Though it is clear that Captain America was FOR killing Nazis, especially those in positions of power. I can agree with that.

I suppose that must be the technical term.

Something to remember before trying something like that, if you can't do a single pull up and stay up a couple seconds, don't do that. Also, don't try improvised human waste with no safety gear.

Let's see.
1) She isn't wearing a harness, so when her fingers get tired, she bumps someone, or the thing binds...
2) She has her hair down and close to the line. She leans forward and gets scalped. Worse, the rollers bind with her hair and scalp trapped. :eek: Which brings us back to point 1 - only now she has no skin on her skull. :sick:

Yeah, there is no way that could go horribly wrong. :goth:

I took my staff zip-lining last year. They loved it. Plenty of redundant safety features. I was the least keen on it but it turned out it was great fun.

Pro-tip; when crossing a gap on a single rope without any equipment to help you, lay on top of the rope and pull yourself along with your arms and push with your feet. Let the rope carry your weight. Even people who can barely manage a pull-up can do it.

Much like Spandex, the potential for abuse is far too great.

I'm not linking to the original article as it is so stupid as to potentially risk brain damage.
