Pogo Trick Gone Wrong: Boy Fails Pogo Stick Ramp Trick
Pogo sticks are weird toys that have been around for a surprisingly long time. What they do make for is great epic fails.
A ramp, a dark garage, a pogo stick, and an adventurous preteen…
Did you know that the concept of a pogo stick has been around since the late 1800s? Admittedly, the original version was more like those moon boot shoes from the 1990s than a pogo stick. A man named George Harrington panted a kind of stilt that used compression springs on each foot. You might recognize a version of those in the modern spring or jump stilts that actually kind of look like bird legs. The more common idea of a pogo stick was invented by a pair of Germans, Max Pohlig and Ernst Gottschall, in 1920. There have been multiple improvements on the original designs since then. One of the surprising things that we learned about pogo sticks is that there is an action sport of it called Extreme Pogo or Xpogo that involves modified pogo sticks that can jump as high as 10 feet in the air.
A recipe for a great FAIL if there ever was one! But HOW will it happen?
