    Link: Tightrope Backflip Failure - Those three words are pretty much synonymous, aren`t they?

    *hands a mod a dagger*

    Anyway...you would expect that during the practice process I guess. The damn surface he`s working on could barely be called 2-dimensional. Must be plenty of falls.

    "You can`t tell me that guy didn`t see that coming from a mile away? I mean come on..."

    In his defense, it was more likely he`d just go off to the side then have that happen =P

    But yeah, doesn`t mean much when he tried it in the first place.

    That sure seemed elastic for a tightrope. Any experts out there that can comment on the restoring force of a tightrope line?

    Well, honestly, there are people that can do it.

    Who knows, this could have been the first time he failed in a while.

    It was funny for a second, but the way people just write it off as "You can`t tell me he didn`t see that coming," is kind of cruel.

    I think it`s a little sad how people automaticaly write off a mistake as a "funny failure. Hah hah, nut shot," but if he`d pulled it off, I`m pretty sure most people on here would have been pretty speechless.

    Besides, I doubt many of you would`ve had the balls to TRY, let alone accept the results of failing.

    Ouch. I feel bad for the guy. Even though it`s technically fail, I give him points for difficulty.

    if anyone is interested, that is slacklining (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slackline) not tightrope walking. It was born out of bored mountain climbers as apposed to the circus.

    Ahh! that`s slacklining, Ive gotten my ass kicked at it before. Rock climbers, when they are bored will set these up between tree`s or where ever.

    I wonder (other than that one video of that gay) if there are any after-fail videos. Itd make the fails cooler.

    "synonymous adj. Having the same or a similar meaning" - tightrope, backflip and failure don`t exactly mean the same thing. Also, it`s a slackline, not a tightrope.
