"Backflip off of wall" Retrospective


Getting back to posting about some of my old videos again. This is the second video on my account. This was a random night being bored at the LSU dorms my freshman year. I don't know why, but while completely sober me and my friends decided to see if we could do a backflip off the wall. We did no research on how to do it properly. We just went outside and tried to see if we could do it. 
I think I was the only one who actually tried. My thinking was that I needed to try to run up the wall as much as possible and then spring off the wall to pull off the flip. This clearly did not work and I only found out later that what I did was almost the complete opposite of what you're supposed to do.
I didn't get hurt attempting any of these. I actually did it like 5-6 times, but this one was the funniest one. I cut before I get up and brush myself off, ready to go again. I remember my uncle saw the video and thought it was really stupid and asked me "Do you think that's what courage is?" I just looked at him plainly and said "Yes."
I never did try doing a backflip off the wall again. But I do think it took courage to just go outside and just try it for no reason. It's also very stupid too, but sometimes there's a bit of overlap.

Unlike most free software for creating 3D fashions it does not consideration to} the creative aspects of 3D modeling but as a substitute on the CAD aspects. The Prototyping Studio is an advanced makerspace on the fourth Bike Helmets flooring of Newman Library. The area offers instruments and tools to work with 3D Printing, electronics, laser chopping, CNC, vacuum forming, clay modeling, stitching, and screen printing. The Studio may also provide broad array|a wide selection|a big selection} of hand instruments so you can also make|you may make} anything you dream of, and better of all, it's all free for the group.
