I recently posted pictures of the Niagara Falls not realising that Nik Wallenda was going to walk across on a tightrope. I watched last night and thought it was a great accomplishment, although not one that I would try any day soon. It didn’t take him that long and it was certainly a lot faster than walking around the falls!
Tightrope walking is called funambulism. Sounds a lot like fun-embolism. An embolism doesn’t sound fun and is certainly not a good thing. I think this type of activity is not such a good idea either! Accomplishment or not.
