Just something strange I thought I'd share.

Ants amazing and people crazy. I admire them both.

I've seen this type of act, with a wall about half as high, in person at our local rinky-dink amusement park. I'm telling you, even at the lowest end of the professional whatever-you-call-them scale, they were impressive. I was entranced, and couldn't leave until they were done! It looked like so much fun, and I wished I could do it...like flying... :0)

I love this kind of stuff. The kind that looks fun and impossible at the same time.

Me too. But like with all arts one does not master, it looks so easy but you know it ain't.

I'd be impressed if they landed on their feet.
