Hammocks were originally constructed as a kind of human cocoon, allowing you the weightlessness of a newborn baby being cradled and the comfort that only occurs when you can relax all your muscles in unison. And now, that has been ruined forever.
A group of BASE jumpers in America have constructed a pentagon-shaped hammock in Utah that sits 120 metres off the ground. Suspended by the rock around it, the hammock is basically my worst nightmare and I cannot digest how happy all these lunatics are about it.
Named Mothership Space Net Penthouse , the hammock is 80 metres in diameter and has a hole in the middle for daredevils to jump out of.
It took 50 people three days to construct and by golly, it seems absolutely terrifying.
