Deadly Math #FAIL

A 22 year old man was attempting a swinging-from-a-giant-stone-arch stunt that has been made popular on YouTube, but the rope he used was too long so instead of swinging in a big arch, he swung and then slammed into the ground with a fatal impact. Sad, but avoidable. The Daily Mail has the story, HERE.

Don’t try this without measuring your rope REALLY WELL first, folks!

    The carpenter`s admonition is, “Measure twice, cut once” ! Perhaps in the case of swingers, it should be, “Measure again, cut off some extra rope” !

    Looks like quite a rush to me !

      I was trying to find a good way to use the carpenter quote, but could not think of anything fitting, because brain infection. Butt at least I KNOW that I suck at math so I’d measure at least five times if I was doing something where the length of a rope would determine my odds of surviving doing something stupid!
