    Swinging around on excavator bucket

    Adventurous young gentleman swings around on an excavator bucket. Never try this at home, or anywhere else. Watching it on the internet, perfectly reasonable.

    When you move on from excavator swinging to crane bungeeing.

    Not for me! Reminds me when, as kids, my older brother & I were skylarking on the roof after fetching a ball: my brother got a sudden bit of acrophobia & I was instructed to climb down and fetch mattresses so he could jump. that wasn't enough so i had to fetch pillows as well. You probably guessed when he finally jumped from the three metres height, he only landed with one foot on the cushioned landing space: why? He didn't bend his knees (i guess) also.
    That was followed by tall storys & he was sent to school with a swollen ankle: after about 3 weeks of pain & lies he confessed & it was discovered he had a broken bone in his foot & not just a sprain. Shoulda gone to truth tellers!
