Every week I enjoy watching the CBS Sunday Morning program. Today's show featured a fun and quirky segment about a real life knife thrower. This performer goes by the name: "The Great Throwdini". He's a minister by day and a knife thrower by night. So I guess he's keeping his life balanced. Here's a video clip of the segment I watched:
As I watched The Great Throwdini do his thing, I tried to imagine what it's like to be the girl on the wheel. His assistant seemed strangely calm. Either she is very trusting or it takes a lot to phase her. I wonder if it is more stressful to have her role or the role of the knife thrower?
Here's a product for those of us who don't want to risk an actual human life when we play with knives:
This is the Throwzini knife block (not to be confused with The Great Throwdini) It spins too!
I ran across a video which should win the award for "Most Impressive use of a Throwzini". I bet it's exciting to visit this guy's house!
While giving this much thought to knives, I was reminded of one of my favorite scenes from Pulp Fiction. You'll know what I mean by the time you get to the middle of the clip.
If the "Fox Force Five" show did exist, I'd probably be watching it!
