Bubbles and Bull

Grovefest 2015-10-03 23

They had a mechanical bull at Grovefest. An operator ran the thing with a joystick, making it gyrate wildly. I think you got a prize if you lasted a couple of minutes. No one did.

Note the broken left horn on this contraption. Someone who slid forward could be seriously injured. The lawyer side of me wonders how much insurance the owner has.

Looks like a bit of bumpy fun Bob, yeeehaw!

Just like the real things, it's hard to hold on for anything beyond a couple of seconds.

I see they have it set up for "soft" landings.

Pffft, lawyers :-)

You wouldn't catch me on that contraption...

I had the same reaction, though as a former corporate lawyer, I went immediately to solutions. All they have to do is to sand down the broken horn.

Never tried my luck on a mechanical bull and I don't really feel a need to do so now, but it would probably give you some fun photos!
