    As for no eyeglasses for vision, I believe we've evolved to have bad eyes. In the past if you had bad eyes you wouldn't have kids as you'd make mistakes like thinking that bull was a fine woman...

    If you note there is only 1 guy who is even trying to appear nonchalant about the ride the rest have a concerned look in their faces.
    the 4 suspension cables under the flat trolley all look like they are capstaned around each of the wheels. this would make it more stable and less prone to losing contact with 1 or more cables due to stretch or being a little more slack than the others. The trolley may not be able to fall off of the cables but with out safety belts and hand grips to hold onto the men could still be tossed out or would fall off in the event of the wind flipping the thing, also not the single lowering line and no mechanisms or provisions to stop the thing from rapid decent if the winch line failed.
    Scary yes, but no more so than riding a 100 year old roller coater made of wood on Staten Island
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    I'd hate to ride that on a windy day. Can you imagine?
