Niagara Falls tightrope walker

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.
