Backflipping Into 1,000 Bags of Autumn Leaves: VIDEO


The kind of fun you can only have in autumn, with the resources to create a 17-foot tall pile made from more than a thousand bags of leaves.

Watch the pre-Thanksgiving fun, AFTER THE JUMP...

  6. i did too, jeff (and marcus).

    i wouldnt be caught--ahem--dead doing that shiz!

    (c.f., Chris Rock's amazing stand-up routine about white ppl needing to constantly add excitement to their lives whereas black ppl already have more than enough excitement, aka, trying to live life without getting arrested or shot by the po-po!) :-P

    it's just group averages. u have wild n crazy black folk too. but in nowhere near the same proportions as the white version :).

  9. It's Utah. Maybe that's what Mormons do instead of drinking caffeine?

  10. What's this have to do with white people? Because they're having fun jumping into piles of leaves instead of smoking crack pipes? oooohhhhh. :-|

  11. I would show this to my boyfriend, but I'm already worried he's going to show up in the Darwin Awards. I don't want to give him any ideas.

  12. "What's this have to do with white people?"

    The fact that it's all white people in the video.

  13. Huh. watching that I was thinking "stupid college kids" not "stupid white kids" but either works I suppose... but it does look kinda fun

  15. Back in the day, I remember jumping in piles of leaves. After dark there was a wonderful bonfire. (happy sigh)

    @Caliban: current LDS practice forbids coffee and tea but allows soft drinks.

    @Ryan: LOL. How do you avoid becoming part of the "experiment"?
