    first? i bet theres many a young sailor shown off to his pals by swinging around on a rope.
    if i remember rightly the romans used to pay young lads to slide down from buildings sutch as the coluciem on ropes to the ground dressed up as angels and sprites

    Charls blondin walked across niagra falls in 1859 once in a sack once pushing a wheel barrow and once carrying his manager on his back

    I always thought that Blondin’s manager must’ve had some serious faith in the guy!! :S
