The Fire Skipping Rope ... On Crutches!

Partying Above And Beyond The Call Of Duty

Attempting the fire skipping rope ... on crutches!
As mentioned in my earlier post entitled The Fire Skipping Rope, one of the attractions of The Hang Out Club (a popular alien club featured in my book ‘How To Save The World: An Alien Comedy’) is that at various points throughout the night the bar staff set a skipping rope on fire and then drunken backpackers foolishly risk life and limb by attempting to skip through the flames.

The inspiration for this idea came from Ko Pha Ngan in Southern Thailand where the fire skipping rope is a popular real-life feature of a night spent partying down at the clubs on the beach.  To help people get an idea of what it’s all about I uploaded a few fire skipping videos in the aforementioned post entitled The Fire Skipping Rope.

As it’s been a while since I featured any fire related activity on this blog, I thought it was therefore time I uploaded another fire related video and this one is particularly impressive.  Like previous videos this next video features a dude doing the fire skipping rope.  However, this time the risk factor goes one step further.  This time the video features a dude doing the fire skipping rope … on crutches!  Yes, that’s right!  Skipping with fire while on crutches!

You have to admire the courage (or possibly the drunken foolishness) of anyone brave enough to attempt the fire skipping rope, but in this case the star of the video deserves extra special credit for his determination to enjoy his holiday and his ‘have-a-go’ spirit despite his apparent injuries.

I mean talk about dedication to the cause!  That’s got to deserve a special award in recognition of services to partying above and beyond the call of duty.

Anyway, that’s probably my favourite fire skipping video so far, although I did like some of the fire videos in my previous post, in particular the video of the dude getting in a panic as his legs got a bit tangled and also the video of the dude getting hit in the face by the fire skipping rope.  If you’d like to check the previous videos out for yourself then you can find them in the following post:

As already mentioned, the fire skipping rope in Koh Pha Ngan provided the inspiration for a similar nightly event on the alien planet Fem in my book 'How To Save The World: An Alien Comedy.'  You can buy the Kindle edition of the book (or download the first few chapters for free) from Amazon:

And stay tuned for more fire skipping videos coming at a later date...
