Chicago is the most watched city in the country thanks to nearly ten thousand private and public security cameras all integrated into one surveillance network.
I make that point only to remind you that in an always-watched world, your every move becomes part of the public record…and could end up getting hundreds of thousands of YouTube views. That is a type of fame, certainly, but it is of the Steve Bartman variety: unintentional and ultimately, unwelcome.
Anyway, enjoy the video documentation of these two guys and their ride on the Sling Shot. And if you find this even remotely amusing, just search under “Sling Shot” in YouTube for dozens more clips. Our family wasted a good thirty-five minutes the other night doing just that…
