    Just watch, swings will soon be taken away because one stupid and foolish kid, who injured himself by attempting one of these will get his mom to take every swingset away.

    `The Oblongs` said it best:

    "Well she`s white, and she`s holding a bible, we better do as she says."

    I can only front flip off a swing. x] People at the park by my house do crazy swing tricks. I liked the straightjacket flip one, or whatever that was called. That was cool.

    yay...the avenge seven fold song in the backaround. i heart a7x.

    and, the tricks were pretty cool.
    in elementary school, i had a friend that would climb on top of the monkey bars, then he would somehow get on top of the roof on the playground, jump on to the swingset, and jump off the top of the 20 feet swingset, and manage to do a backflip on his way down. he would also do backflips off the bench...and the ground.
    but the best thing he did was swing, and manage to flip 3 times before his feet touched the ground.

    and all i could ever do was jump off the swing, and flip off of it.

    I wasn`t cool enough to do any of those stunts. The only thing I ever did was swing really high, or that one time when I caught a tennis ball with my ankles while swinging (I was an odd kid).

    Now I want to sneak over to my neighbors and use their swingset.

    Tomorrow we hear about gobucks dead body found mangled around aswing set, skull cracked open and both legs broken...

    The only thing I could do as a kid was climb those high poll thingies to the very top and then swing to to the bottom really fastxD!!!

    I later chipped my front tooth when I smashed into the poll face first...

    I would just swing really high, grab one of the chains and let my ass slide off the seat and tarzan swing.... that and see how far I could jump away after swinging high.

    They spelled "Believe" wrong. Morons. I`ve never seen anyone to any flips and whatnot off a swing before, so that was pretty neat.
