Bungee jumping is yet another to-do dream on my life list..(read the other idea) So the other day I was searching on the internet for some facts about safety and origins of Bungee Jumping..
and here is a story that I found ..
Alice and Frank were Bungee jumping one day.
Alice says to Frank, "You know we could make a lot of money running our
own Bungee-jumping business in Mexico ."
Frank thinks this is a great idea, so they pool their money and buy
everything they need: a tower, an elastic cord, insurance, etc.
They travel to Mexico and begin to set up on the square. As they are
constructing the tower, a crowd begins to assemble. Slowly, more and more
people gather to watch them at work.
When they had finished, there was such a crowd, they thought it would be
a good intent to give a demonstration, so Alice jumps.
She bounces at the end of the cord, but when she comes back up, Frank
notices that she has a few cuts and scratches. Unfortunately, Frank isn't
able to catch her and she falls again, bounces, and comes back up again.
This time, she is bruised and bleeding.
Again, Frank misses her. Alice falls again and bounces back up. This
time, she comes back pretty messed up — she's got a couple of broken
bones and is almost unconscious.
Luckily, Frank finally catches her this time and says, "What happened???
Was the cord too long????"
Barely healthy to speak, Alice gasps, "No, the Bungee cord was fine…it
was the crowd!….What the HELL is a Piñata?!"
