    Extreme tug of war aka Death Rope!!

    This seems like it should have been a scene in a horror movie. Good thing they didn't tie the ropes around their necks.

    yeah, sucks that those kids hurt themselves, hope they are able to repair the damage to their hands, but wrapping a rope around you hands during tug of war isn't the brightest move on the planet. Wonder why one of the organizer of the event did not stress not to do that.

    But hey, they are in highschool and lord knows I did some stupid crap back then.

    There was a pic/video floating around the net a wile back about a tug of war at some picnic, or something, in Taiwan. It actually showed one of the participants getting their arm ripped off during a tug o' war. Nasty stuff.

    Sophomore Jenni Kgerstad said it was a chaotic scene inside the school.

    "Hearing it was pretty gross. There was like a lot of people screaming and just all blood flying everywhere and just people running out of the room," she said.
    like, OMG.
    One morning I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got into my pajamas I'll never know.
