I literally was holding my breath at one point! Shine on, Estonia, you crazy fairytale land of swingers and dune buggies.
So basically what me and a bunch of other kids from the neighborhood tried for entire summers to do on a swingset is considered a sport in another country? Huh.
So what's the sport? Seeing who can take the longest to flip around like that poor kid did in third grade?

I truly expected him to fall.

Almost like trying to reach an orgasm.
This video further convinces me that Estonia is a poor-mans Finland.
Exquisite anticipation, then release. It was almost pornographic.

The sine wave of joy.

Watching this was terrifying and orgasmic.
I don't know what worries me that more: that the videos housed here are showing a skewed vision of Estonia, or that they're showing an accurate one.
I wrote something about Kiiking for a "Sports we want to see in the Olympics" thing a while back. Basically, the goal is to do a 360 degree orbit, but every time you complete one they take you down and extend the bars on the swing by a foot or two, making it more difficult to complete. So the person who has the longest complete orbit wins. The record is 7m 2cm, or like 21 feet, which means at the peak of the orbit the dude is like 45 feet off the ground.

I find all sport confusing, especially how it came to be, but this takes it to a whole new level. I wonder how good a workout it is?

MYTHBUSTERS CAN SUCK IT.

My hands started to sweat. This is made better by the person punctuating the apogee of each swing with "Hey!".
Damn that was awesome.
from now on, this is the visual connotation that will instantly spring into my mind of daily average life in Estonia.
I think the three seconds where you're stopped upside down standing on a plank of wood on a giant stiff strutted swing would be just about the greatest three seconds of your life.

Estonia: happy magical kingdom of insane advertisements and the best swingsets in existence.
|Lies, lies, LIES! |
That man is living the dream.
Five for the complete lack of safety equipment. Seriously, how hard would it be to strap the guy to the thing a little? Helmet? Net? I need to show this to my mom, she have a motherly concern fit.
I thought sure it would have something to do with Jewish skiers.
