This is the blog of Ronald Bartels that wanders on and off the subject of problem management (that is how it started), but it is best described by Ray who says this is Daddy's thoughts! Like the best music is from the Eighties and a wee dram helps in solving most inconveniences.
Bungee jumping - trusting your life to elastic - the Awesome World of Things
Bungee jumping it's origins
in the ancient ritual "Gkol" performed in the Pentecost Island in the
Pacific Archipelago of Vanuatu. The legend says that in the village
named Bunlap a man called Tamalie had a quarrel with his wife
and she ran away and climbed a Banyan tree where she wrapped her ankles
with liana vines. When Tamalie came up to her, the woman jumped from
the tree and so did her husband not knowing what had his wife had done.
So he died but the woman survived. The men of Bunlap were very impressed
by this performance and they began to practise such jumps in case they
got into similar situations. This practice transformed into a ritual for
rich yam harvest and also for proving manhood.
