Go watch strapping young men in kilts throw heavy stuff around. (and ignore the announcer when, after five hours, he mentions how old they are because then you just feel really icky and dirty.)
Ok, so there were a few legal ones.
Haggis for lunch
Weight for distance
Hammer throw - that's a 16 pound weight at the end
Shief toss - a bag of hay weighing 16 pounds thrown with a pitch fork
Caber toss - about 16 feet long and weighing over 100 pounds
this one finally did fall
Heavy weight for height
When it was all over, I talked them into letting me go up the ladder to shoot down at someone tossing a shief up towards me. I was at the top of the latter, with one of the pro level guys flinging the 16 pound bag over the bar at me... 24 feet in the air at the top of an extension ladder. Cool pictures though!
Oh yeah, there were pipers there too...
This just struck me funny
Inside me is a thin woman trying to get out. I usually shut the bitch up with a martini.
