Next time out, try this high-tech pogo stick. Allegedly its users can get up to five feet of air on each bounce. I know, sounds like quadriplegia waiting to happen. Reviews at and just for fun, somebody doing a back flip on one. The kids at have some apt comments about the thing. My fave:

All I have to say is… Wow. I wonder how many deaths would be caused if it got into the wrong hands. I can see it now, it’ll be on the news. “Local toddlers, after using a new pogo stick known as the flybar, died today, after attempting to jump off a roof, onto a trampoline while still on the flybar. They were immediately launched into the air, and were found 3/4 of a mile away from their original launching point. Local witnesses say “What the hell is flybar?”
