Floating on Bamboo

I haven't posted anything important in a while. Mostly because I was busy and needed a break from "society." I will post up my progress on my projects soon. For the time being:

I was cleaning my basement and while using some newspapers to cover the floor, I stumbled upon this article. The photos caught my eye (I can't read Chinese). According to my mom, it was a competition held in China to celebrate a technique used by the Red Army in the 50's. Using one or two long sticks of bamboo, people were able to appear like they were walking on water. They used it to cross rivers and the like. However, now with communism on the decline this technique has become more of a sport and practice of balance. Pretty damn cool if you ask me.
