An Interesting Fact About Sandboarding
"An interesting fact about sandboarding is that it is said to have been invented in Egypt over 2 million years ago. The ancient Egyptians would ride down the large sand dunes on stone tablets to avoid falling or getting caught in the strong desert winds."
"Unfortunately, many Egyptians met fatal ends when they rode into a patch of quicksand - quicksand deaths were arguably on of the leading causes of death at that time."
I found that part more WTFish...

I'm confused now. I don't remember reading the part about the Egyptians meeting their fatal ends in quicksand. I think it might have been added to since my post. Either that or I didn't notice it because I was laughing at the first line. I can't remember. |
Now it's gone. That was pretty funny while it was there. Another time I was looking up some politician on wikipedia and there was a huge penis on the page. It got edited really quickly. lol
people suck. that was funny.
Are there any youtube videos of this?
that looks like fun
Yeah I was thinking about it whilst snowboarding yesterday. The crash landings would probably REALLY hurt.

Yes, although landing in quicksand would probably kill you.
