    6 Does THIS look like FUN? If it does, goodwill has kangaroo jumper stilts on auction..

    Bid is at $51 now, these (NEW) run several hundred bucks, I think.
    Be advised that there are different BRANDS and the design and efficiency of these has rapidly evolved so who knows how high you can jump or fast you can run in an OLDER MODEL?
    HERE is the YOUTUBE video showing people using them (NOT THE SAME BRAND as being auctioned!):

    Acts 9:11 The Lord told him, Go to the house of Judas on Straight Street and ask for a man from Tarsus named Saul, for he is praying. 12 In a vision he has seen a man named Ananias come and place his hands on him to restore his sight.

    I'd probably be safer in a bayonet fight.

    I just had the regular wooden stilts my dad built me.......I walked everywhere in our yard with them up and down the terraced walls and never hurt myself once.

    These look a little more complicated......bouncing is not good when you are going straight ahead.

    Would have been fun as a teen but I don't bounce like I used to. So....no.

    Looks kinda dangerous to me.


    The Obama Administration constitutes a pseudocompetocracy, i.e., rule by those whose primary skill is in feigning competence.

    I couldn't tell exactly, but none of the people in the video appeared to have gray hair. Might not be a good idea for me...

    Can't do it with the blance issues from the stroke but I'd be game otherwise. Lot of potential there from escaping herds of Walkers to herds of Antifada zombies.

    My biggest concern would be doing a jump and having one of those fiberglass springs break on landing.

    Reminds me of those boots worn by the girl in Portal games.

    The healthy human mind doesn't wake up in the morning thinking this is it's last day on Earth. But I think that's a luxury, not a curse. To know you're close to the end is a kind of freedom. Good time to take... inventory.
