Exercise trampoline is just too much.

Jess got the idea recently of getting an exercise trampoline. I was skeptical, but hey, it's not my money.

It turns out the trampoline required some assembly. In several different places in the assembly booklet it was stressed that “TWO STRONG PEOPLE” were needed to assemble the trampoline and that some pretty simple-sounding mistakes could cause “SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH”.

When you think about it, it's a bit disturbing that they felt compelled to point this out in the instruction booklet. Had previous assemblers died putting together exercise trampolines?

So Jess did the sensible thing and returned it. There is no point risking life and limb for an exercise trampoline, even if it's a pretty remote risk.

Oh, I'm not sure life and limb would be risked, but there would definitely be a high potential for ending up on America's Funniest Home Videos. Do they even have that show anymore?
