    I sure hope she reaches her fundraising goal. That's such a huge debt she has right now.
    I'd, actually, be disappointed if she doesn't reach her goal. I mean... a bullied bus monitor raised over $700,000!!

    COME ON, PEOPLE!

    if so, it was only one to test the stability:

    During the course of the evening, a slackline was set up between a tree and one of the park's cement light posts. No one realized how bad the condition of the lamp post was, and when the line was being checked out for stability, the cement lamp post cracked and came tumbling down. Onto my head.

    Not yet. The guy who brought the slackline (we'll call him Joe, because that's his name) had put a foot on it to see if it was tight enough and all that stuff, and he got off immediately because the lamp post gave way. My boyfriend was standing next to the lamp post and saw it starting to fall, and shouted my name to get me to move, and Joe tried to shove me out of the way. His hand was hit by the lantern and he got a pretty good laceration out of it. Clearly this lamp post was out for me, and me alone.

    Other questions: Joe is the guy who invited us to the party, and he is a friend and coworker of my boyfriend. He's the one who spearheaded the slacklining campaign, and while he knows the folks who set it up, he wasn't associated with the event outside of that. We definitely all agreed to slackline with him.

    I don't know you. Never spoken to you. But I feel for you so I donated. I'm currently unemployed myself so I was only able to do the minimum for now. Hope everything works out for you. Also as someone who has worked in a physical therapy office all I have to say is good luck re learning how to walk. Sound so simple I know but it's the hardest thing to do.

    I've been wary of lamp posts ever since reading The Chronicles of Narnia.

    I'm looking forward to my post-cards.

    Unit3000, you've no idea how much even a small amount means to me. Every dollar you give is one I didn't have before.

    As for relearning how to walk, I know it'll be a challenge, but I'm up to it, I think. If I can survive a cement lamp post, I can survive physical therapy, too, by damn!

    I'm not convinced that these donations are from real people. It's possible, nay, most likely that Alma is cooking meth to fund all of this. She just needs a legit way to explain how she came into all of that money.

    I don't think anybody was giving the troll treatment, if that's what you took the encouragements to pursue litigation to be. It just seems odd that she would be expected to bear the full brunt of medical costs from incurring an injury by city property on city property, due to no fault of her own. She wasn't doing anything but standing beside the lamp post. Whether she intended to eventually go slacklining herself should be irrelevant.

    In any event, we've (captncrzy & I) donated but we'd still encourage you to pursue getting at minimum your medical costs covered by either the city or whoever it was that was setting up the slackline, and I'd argue you should go after lost wages on top of that. I can appreciate not being a litigious person but this wouldn't be a frivolous lawsuit to file.

    I didn't get this meaning from what Ivy said at all. I thought she was saying that Alma hasn't been around the board in a while and so she might be unknown to some people, who might thus be tempted to troll.

    Ah, a preemptive remark. Figured it was related to the variety of posts that had preceded hers.

    I was the one who asked the question about litigation, and I have known and been friends with Alma for years, so I don't see how that would be considered trolling, Rick.

    I can temper my statement. It's not sound advice. It's going to be a very tricky claim to win on and few lawyers are going to take this case because they'd have to take it on a contingency basis and they'd lose OR alma would have to pay and she's going to lose.

    You know those assholes who go to public parks and tie up trees with all manner of cords and then just walk across the cords all day and block pedestrian traffic through THE PUBLIC AREA? Yeah, those cords are slacklines and the people who do it are by and large useless*.

    *Alma excluded.

    Also, just to be clear, on the one successful time I participated in slackline use, we stayed far away from most other people and didn't block any pathways. Your Seattle variety slackliner must (I insist on this) be a buffoon.

    Oh, but Corinna, can't you see? Through their experiments, they're proving that that's exactly what a park can be. It can, in fact, be hell.


    And yes, you walk it like a tightrope. You also get to look incredibly goofy doing it, flailing this-a-way and that-a-way. Great for laughing at your friends derisively.

    Not trying to be argumentative because I know this is your area of expertise, but what about this situation makes it tricky? Seems to the layperson like the city would be found culpable. What makes a lawsuit a doomed scenario?
