Posted:Fire lasso!? And here I was thinking I was crazy trying to light a three section staff on fire. The umbrella thing sound pretty cool, though. I've seen a couple kung fu movies (sorry I can't remember the names to save my life) that have some crazy cane and walking stick styles, maybe they could translate to your umbrella thingie.------------------If you love something, set it on fire.

Posted:I'm not saying it's a bad idea by any means. I wouldn't have thought of it in a million years, though. In fact, it seems like a million years since I've even seen a jump rope.

Posted:Yeah but seriously.. what kinds of variation can you have with a skipping rope? Unless the middle section could come apart.. that could work.------------------May the fire of God burn its impression on your heart.

Posted:There are actually a ton of things you could do with a jumprope if you're not dead set on using it as a jump rope.I'd like to see some one spinning while skipping rope, get some double dutch action going on.

Posted:That's what she intended. I was hoping it would've been inferred in my post hence my pluralisation of rope. Sorry for not making it more obvious.Sometimes I forget that no one else knows what I'm on about.
