Slippery when wet…..or is it?

Just thinking about it from a different point of view can give it a humors aspect to it. Seeing it as a little person falling down or someone who just dropped into an all out dance off. Which one would you find more humor in? Maybe both, but the answer I want is the dance off. Although, there is actually a competition in which the next picture is able to show much better. Its a picture that shows a ground line which could represent the line that these people below the next picture use for their dance per say.

This activity is called slackline. Most people might think that stepping on a piece of rope or band and trying to balance yourself might be suicidal, these people do it for fun and not just that they also maintain their balance while performing a dance. Its a great thing to see and I for one would not be able to try that without having face-planted many times before I just decided to give up more than likely. But a description is only good enough to a point The video below shows it all and there is not a moment you wouldn’t expect to see them crash down.

I bring to you slackline.

All these type of caution signs warning of people being around a hazard where they could fall now appear to be a form of dance or entertainment for others, not the falling down part, but in fact they could be a logo for them. Seeing these signs from a different perspective makes you think what other activities that people do can be found in the signs that we just see and ignore, though we shouldn’t, and see them from a different point of view.
