  • Most people castrate farm animals now by putting a band on their nether regions and letting it fall off naturally. Done when they are very young. Not a big deal. Now sticking your arm up a cows butt to stop constipation, I’ll be amazed when an actor does that.

  • I forget who the actor was but I recall an interview quote from decades back wherein the fellow commented, "As an actor, develop an unusual skill set." His reference was to deoing unusual card shuffles, the correct manner to sample a wine, folding a shirt, etc, etc. *This*list sure tops it all! Weaver took the cake for me, working so intimately with live gorillas - wo, yes, can become VERY dangerous in heartbeat! (Tom Cruise I gapingly admire but am personally convinced is merely insane! :-) )

    robert sheltonrobert sheltonOy oldin
  • Just thought of an idea to make walking across building on a wire a tad safer. What if you put on hooks at both ends and just in case you fall, you can catch yourself with the stick. And enough finger grip of coarse.

    MrGrombieMrGrombieOy oldin
    • They have safety equipment now that hooks to the cable/wire in case of a fall.

  • Wait, going from tightrope walking across skyscrapers and them going to "using a whip" seems like a huge downgrade.

    Bob DoleBob DoleOy oldin
    • @David Murrell fair enough

      Bob DoleBob DoleOy oldin
    • Except for obvious reasons he didn't really tightrope between the Twin Towers. The whip work though was real, and if you muck that up you can seriously hurt or even kill someone. That whip crack is the tip breaking the sound barrier, they're designed to be used on bulls (hence the name), the tip can snap your thigh bone, which means it can snap any bone in your body.

Tom Hanks, Bill Paxton and Kevin Bacon trained in NASA 0-G trainer jet to learn how to act in zero gravity for "Apollo 13." Whole cast of "The Abyss" had to learn to scuba with brand new technology. Just off the top of my head.

    Les LaunerLes LaunerOy oldin
