Some time ago I created the idea of Climbing Up The
Walls Of Everything which Ikea were kind enough to
realise. (see link)
I also have a lot of ideas about tightropes, and this is
another one. It's quite simple really. You take the entire
contents of a department store that retails a large
variety of products and join them together, like the links
in a chain, to form a very long tightrope.
For example; a short section could: be rope---sofa---
rope---frying pan--- rope---duvet cover---wardrobe---
This dubious tightrope is then stretched across a suitable
gap for anyone who wants to try their luck to cross in the
manner of a tightrope walker. In doing so, the intrepid
walker will have to negotiate not only the rope but the
physical items which will constantly rotate and wobble
Simplified version permits scrambling over the obstacles,
but the expert ultra version requires traversing the
objects to be a totally hands free balancing action in the
manner of strict tightrope walking.

||If they're allowed to spin this will be much more difficult than a traditional tightrope.
||//Do those who attempt the tigthropre get anything?// (sic) Yes - they get a nonstick frying pan and a free weekend entry pass into Tayto Land.
||+ bun only if the frying pan is hot, duvet cover has
holes in it, table is missing a leg, etc. muwhaha
||How about typing a letter on the manual Olivetti
when half way across?
I had already bunned this anyway!
