Just last week my friend tried to rig a slackline to a fountain in the central plaza of a small Mexican town.

Can't seem to get the image to load but you can just imagine.

oh...I see it's quite easy to underestimate the power of a tensioned line...:( seems quite strange to me that a whole section of the wall fell off

whenever I see something like this, it reminds me http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8cQnjuXf4o :)

It doesn't matter how many times I see that video I still get a laugh from it.

Damn, I wouldn't expect that to happen, but it does look like a pretty old, crumbling wall. That's a good reminder to be careful what you rig to.

Turns out that was the 4th time he set up that line and never had problems before.

Cement is not very strong under tension. Good example.
