Trying To Figure Out The Name Of A Past-time

Postby Scotty on Tue 7/Oct/14 12:28pm

Excuse me if this sounds a bit thick, but what's the name of the tight-rope that people put up in-between trees/poles/etc and then walk along it?

Is it slack-lining or something similar?

Found it, it was slacklining, google wasn't liking how I asked it. :blush:

Look like something fun to when one is bored and has a couple of trees around. :satan:

Slack-arsing lining is correct. Or hippiness.


It's also a good way to get bagged...

You're asking the wrong question, everything is wrong with whiteboy dreads. There was a 5 minute, sorta ok window in 1993, but apparently now its (correctly) considered to be a crime against humanity (oh the Humanity, will no-one think of the children).

Cultural appropriation. Same as white women getting ass implants.
