How many can you balance?

Stupid competition.

Winner wins an e-cookie.

No, I was not being serious about the fake thing, it was just an additional pointless word I added to Haths post.
I hope it was clear it was a joke, because it was such a rude and easy way of giving you my opinion. Pointless, I shame.

What I do think about it, cleary one still needs to balance a construction like that, I'm usually more fond of the simple single tower formation, even if sean_ meant that in homo way, which I'm suspecting. Does go in better, fair point.

Allright, I want to join in! Anyone else?

I think there was a thread on this years ago if anyone fancies digging it up...

I recall a lad called Dave balancing (say) 10+ on his chin on stage at the Brum renegade. Went well until he fell backwards down the stage steps.

Media -> click on an album -> add an item to this album edit - gallery permissions fixed!

I want to see that epic bit of engineering in higher resolution.
