    Walking across Niagara Falls on ABC

    Some dude trying to walk across Niagara Falls WITH a harness.....Come on now....His grandpa died from doing this WITHOUT a harness. He needs to do it without a harness. Now it's pointless to watch.

    He wanted to do it without a harness, but ABC is making him wear it so that it is "family friendly" programming so if he does slip, no little kids have to see someone die.

    Also, I heard something about the tightrope being twice the normal diameter. Not that that would make any difference to me.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Why didn't they start the coverage at 5? Thye need to spend more time previewing it. Too much to talk about in so little time. Do I really need a Jimlad?

    I believe they said it was the width of three pennies side by side.

    Re: Walking across Niagara Falls on ABC

    Harness makes this harmless. That's so stupid. I understand they want it to be family friendly, but were they that cautious with Evil Kenevil?

    ABC will get more attention, and probably more money as a result, if this dude doesn't wear a harness, than if this dude falls with a harness. Everyone is going to be ****** they spent time watching this primetime BS if this dude falls and lives. He has so much to live up to now.

    For the record, I want him to live.

    Pretty impressive to answer questions like that and walk across a wire at the same time

    Re: Walking across Niagara Falls on ABC

    We just visited Niagara Falls late last week. After doing the Maid of the Mist tour, this sounds incredibly difficult even with a "wider" tight-rope. When they call it a mist, it's really more of a steady rain with good wind just from the movement of the water over the edge. When the boat pulled into the middle of Horseshoe Falls, the mist obscured just about everything. When he's on the rope in the middle of the falls, he won't be able to see much if any horizon to orient himself.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    The shot they just had from the helicopter was amazing.
