    Hmm interesting idea - but not the sort of thing I would like to be in in a storm

    That's a very good point, OR.:eek: I'm not sure I could live in something like that. I like the idea of a tree-borne city, and I like the idea in general, but the shape of that house doesn't appeal to me.

    I never thought about the Health and Safety, or the Insurance!

    I was reading about this company that do Dinners whilst you are suspended in the air:
    Dinner in the Sky

    They have done these events all over Europe (and have one planned for the UK) and some of the rest of the World, but the Insurance costs in the USA make it unprofitable.

    Wow...I'm not afraid of heights, but I think I'd struggle with that! I'd keep hoping that I didn't drop my fork...

    Seriously, though, it's a nice idea for people who want to eat out, although not for everyone, I'd imagine.

    To me they look like Mini-Death Stars. I'm not sure they are doing the Ewoks any justice by designing their houses on something that was within a few seconds of blowing them up!

    Now if those ropes were elasticated, I wonder how far into the lake you could launch that "home".

    I was going to use the term "death trap", but was 'worried' that it might not sink (;):eek:), and about the willingness of the company to resort to litigation :)eek::eek:).

    URSA! Again with the puns!

    I hope the ropes are elasticised. Now everyone, listen up. On the count of three jump. One...Two...Three! How fun! :D :p
