    lol, i thought this was going to be one of those horrible videos where someone gets thrown into a solid object really hard. That seems pretty cool actually.

    I quite agree, with that added emphasis.

    They should at least let her know when they are going to release her so she can prepare and not have her head wedged in between her shoulder blades as she accelerates. Ouch, talk about bad neck and spine strain.

    One word: whiplash.
    One more word: stupid.

    At least she was wearing a helmet... oh, wait, that's not a helmet, that's me imagining that they'd have brains they'd want to protect.

    i could just imagen them puting it at to much of an angle and she'd come back and hit the ground, broken legs and spinal injury.

    As the parent of a college age kid, nothing much surprises me any longer, but I did stop to think, "Oh, look. They've invented a better idiot."

    Love it. There's a similar commercial venture at South Padre Island. The riders are seated in a chair device much like a roller coaster. The bungees propel straight up. About six bounces before you settle down.

    I am wondering how much G-force was involved there? Could this lead to brain contusion?

    The acceleration is actually fairly gradual, as is the deceleration, certainly nothing close to the impact football players endure.

    I have bungy jumped, and done the bungy ball but this just seemed dangerous. Too many variables and practically no precautions.

    Unless, perchance, you happen to hit something. Like the ground.

    Actually, that looks like fun. Horizontal bungie jumping. Of course, if one side breaks it's going to HURT!
