Mad Scientist Builds 360 Swing As Tall As His House

Video: Swinging over the bar was, and probably still is the dream of many a kid on the playground. Lunatic inventor Colin Furze never quite grew up, and now he's fulfilling his childhood fantasy at a terrifying scale with little to no safety equipment. Is that a good idea? Probably not, because as the title states, the A-frames that make up the bulk of this counterweighted swing are as tall as Furze's home in Lincolnshire. Falling headfirst from over two storeys up is something best avoided -- though it's relatively safe compared to a thermite cannon.
