    A little hammock fun/stupidity

    Not quite sure whether to call this a hammock will or fail. At least they had the sense to have him wear a helmet. http://youtu.be/cmoR9V3S5z8

    Couldn't figure out how to get the video to show up in the post.

    Poor kid, you can tell he was being a good sport, but he wasn't too happy about that. Those two guys should be put in the hammock and swung around like that, to see how they like it. Idiots!!!!!
    Happy Hangin!!!

    ....from the makers of Jack ***! Wonder if they had their "signs?"

    Sympathies to the kid. At least he seemed to have missed the wood beam in the ground.

    I don't see what the big deal is. My folks did this to me all the time and I turned out just... oh, wait... never mind.
    You're gonna need a bigger hammock
