< rope monk balance >
« on: August 23, 2022, 10:19:56 AM »
it took about 5 different google searches,
but that was the most successful combo

decades ago i saw a newspaper photo and story of monk lying down on a single rope as though it was a hammock.
i looked on the internet for the photo but couldn't find it,
but here's a round up of today's rope recliners,
i could only find three pics,
and one of them is from a movie

Nice find!

It hurts just looking at these people lying on a single rope let alone sleeping on one. I think I'm too old to give up the divan and my wife on the adjacent rope...... I don't think so!!

haa, yes, maybe a nail bed would be more supportive!
hammock is very agreeable.

but if anyone has a go, do let us know  ⚖
