Do trapeze artists have elevated health risks?
I don't mean from falling, I mean from hanging upside down.
Do they have an increased blood flow to the brain that causes strokes or heart attacks? Or do they have a boost in tolerance? I was quite disappointed that my 2 minutes of googling at 3am failed to provide an answer to these very pressing questions.
Also, why are they called trapeze artists? Can I call myself a webcomic athlete? If I had to work that hard to be referred to as an artist, I probably would've become a physician. At least then I would be able to tell what hanging upside down does to one's health.
I probably shouldn't try to write coherently at 3am. I sound like a bad 90's stand-up comedian.
It is far too late for me to be awake, but I do want to say congratulations to webcomic athlete Dan Sacharow. His comic, the often-mentioned Molly Beans, made it to 100 comics this week. If you're one of those nerds who like comics about software development, you'll love Molly Beans.
