Hey. I could have called it a stay.
That would have really confused the issue but it wouldn't have been as precise, cause it's not on a sailboat.

My own two cents:

Guy line or guy wire. I've called them that since I was little because that's what they are called.

Why do you think he was hacked?


Because he usually put in his two cents, which are usually factually correct, then leaves. Not like Phage to feed trolls in this manner.

The point is, Phage, that unless you've worked with that equipment, or know someone who does and talks about it a lot, most people would be JUST FINE with calling it a rope, a wire, whatever.
You could have easily been like
"HEY GUISE I KNOW WHAT ITS CALLED, GIVE ME A STAR"
And you would've had the same effect. None at all. You contributed little to nothing to the actual point of the post.

A stay would not be accurate as it clearly did not stay.

Except for the fact that a bug flew by and the guy line broke when maximum load was placed on it.

That a guy almost dies because they set up wonky equipment?
there really is nothing else here.

If you are looking for a motive for a poster, why not read their signature?

signature:

Hahaha.. He's distorting facts I tell you!!
eh sometimes.. We all do.

Actually, in the description for the video it's called a "safety line" which makes no sense. Since when do base jumpers use a safety line?

edit on 12/24/2012 by Phage because: It says "line"






You're right-- that doesn't seem to make sense to me either.

However, in the video itself, the word "rope" refers to the thing which appears to break, the "guy line."

And not one mention of a guy line.
Therefore, a guy line is not a rope.




However, guy line = guy rope. The link and ex-text i quote above use these terms interchangeably. This really seems like pointless semantics.

Why do you have to try so hard to appear right?

Probably because he's wrong about everything that he doesn't have direct access to google for.


Some people shine on the internet, and nowhere else.

He likes to appear right.. Call it a character flaw.. If it is I share it too.
He's an alright guy, for real.


This thread was silly, so I can see many wanting to distance themselves in different ways.. He decided to go technical.. I went comical.. It's all semantics really, when everything is relative..

Well, it is interesting....but.....

One, do we know if the guy was alright?? Posting the video, and not telling us, seems off.

Two, most likely a bug or something in front of the camera, and normal stresses breaking the rope.

Three, the guy says, in the notes, to watch for "more videos like this". If this was some freaky thing, how the heck would they know they would be posting more like it? That alone makes me think there is nothing to this save a very bad accident.

That is one crazy human.

By the way, I think it may have been the "Woohoo" that provided just enough extra force to overcome the Highbar's structural integrity.

Or a lil evil demon sprite creature did it.
