  • Totally off-topic: Zip lines

    The newest Geico commercial with the pig on the zip line cracks me up:



    Have you ever done anything like this?

    My wife was just cracking up at that. Anyway did the zip line thing in the rain forest in costa rica. Highly recommended was a ton of fun.
    Cause sometimes the rhetoric don't go with the contents

      Yeah, they're pretty good fun. Haven't been on one in years though.

          I used to be a zip line fiend... we'd jump off the platform and do a half-backflip and wrap our legs around the strap and ride the thing while hanging upside down - and facing backwards. Just make sure you do a sit-up before you get to the end of the line...

          The pig commercial is really similar to one of the places where I used to do that... it was probably a 1,200' line that ran across a pine tree-filled canyon with a good 300' of air below you at the center. LOADS of fun - if you ever have the opportunity to try it, I highly recommend it. It's a blast.

            HA, like most commercials; the content within the ad has no relation to the product whatsoever

                Done it. In the rain in Puerto Vallarta. It was fun, but all of our clothes were ruined.

                  Ahhh damn that pig is annoying. It'd be better if it had a deep manly voice, yelling like he's been stabbed.

                      I did it at a small place near St. Louis, and even that was a lot of fun. I can only imagine how much more fun it would be doing it some place like in that commercial.

                          Did it in Costa Rica too. Zip line to a waterfall/cliff jump. Some guy in our group slipped off the rocks and fell about 15 ft onto rocks and then rolled into the water. Me and the guides had to basically lift/push him back up the rocks and then the ladders up to the zip line (only way out). Probably had a broken hip. Very scary to see.

                          But the zip line part was amazing.
                          MAN for that kind of thing U got to go Back to the Old boxes from back when!! In those days we would bring are AMPS to the lake and wnen U tilt the Cab down by the water U can see the ****************in DENT it made!
