Default salck rope rig

check this bizaar physics experiment

I've never seen a rig like it and yet it seems to be working.
It was hard to figure what was actually happening to start with but then I figured there's wires going down from the peak to either side at the bottom to those silver horizontal poles which extend beyond the uprights.(did that make any sense?)
Once it's in your head, it makes sense.

I was at this show. In fact I'm about three feet out of shot.

I remember this guy because of the cool rig set-up and because he had an unplanned dismount the first time he tried. I *think* the rig took him a bit of time to set up...

He also did a bit with a chainsaw - holding the bar between his teeth while it was running.


Can't remember his name - but I'm pretty sure he's Australian, has large star tattoos on his shoulders. So it could be anybody, really.
