I agree, lousy product.
Dig the advertisement on the right (under the spinning arrowhead). The film clip of the woman with the Great Dane and the retractable leash. It's gotta be staged, right? http://www.mediajonez.com/index.html?tv/deadwood real history0305.html Heh.

My dogs tag-teamed kind of like that me once using standard leashes, when they were young. Oppie (all 65 lb of 9-month Lab) lurched ahead just as Dylan (80 lb) crossed in front of me. With her knee-level back providing a fulcrum, I went over flat on my front. (Minor scrapes and bruises resulted, the largest of which was to my dignity.)
I understand the complaints about retractables, but with a dog who is well-trained to walk on a leash (as they later became), I don't have a problem with them. I didn't try walking both dogs at once using retractables. But the dogs learned to halt when I click the control, and getting tangled is no more of a problem than with a short leash.

To reply, unleash the dog.

Personally, I'm just not a big fan of retractables. But that's not really why I posted that link.
Do you think that little film clip was staged? Or do you think someone happened to catch that hilarious moment just at the right time?
I just can't stop myself from watchin' it.
Help!

Fake flying Granny.

Fake flying Granny.

Fake as in it's not really anyone's Granny? Fake as in it's a stunt? Fake as in being Photoshopped?
How is it fake?

Fake as in it's not really anyone's Granny? Fake as in it's a stunt? Fake as in being Photoshopped? How is it fake?

The part where Granny flies is fake. I can't see the clip in a large enough size to determine whether it's really a Granny to begin with, but presuming it is, that Granny in the beginning part is far too heavy to fly in the manner portrayed. Not even a child would fly in that like that. The Dane could certainly pull someone off her feet, but for the most part, heavy objects (like people) fall to the ground. And bounce.

Second, I don't know of a single Granny who could grip the leash tightly enough to fly.
Third, watch Granny's legs when she flies.
I'd say it's a Granny doll that goes flying, but a kind of animated Granny could be made for film purposes.

That would depend on the amount of force being used to "pull" ol' Granny through the air. And you can even see her hair being swept back by that force when she takes off, too.
I don't know...

I agree with you on that part...but that could just mean that ol' Granny is really a 25 year old champion water skier dressed up to look like a Granny. Emotion: smile
Third, watch Granny's legs when she flies. I'd say it's a Granny doll that goes flying,

No way that's a doll!
but a kind of animated Granny could be made for film purposes.

Maybe it's been monkeyed with on film, but that ain't no doll.

No way, Jose.
Damn, we'll probably never know for sure.
But thanks for giving me your take on it!

And you can even see her hair being swept back by that force when she takes off, too.

Movies work because of the suspension of disbelief. As a veteran image manipulator, I no longer take "you can even see" as a matter of reality. When I do my job well, that's exactly what people say because I've already thought of how things might or "should" look. I manufacture visual reality. It has nothing to do with reality. If things don't look real, I can make them look more real. I can make whatever image I want and I can edit it pixel by pixel so it is perfectly seamless.
And even if the person who made that film swore to me on whatever people swear on, I still wouldn't believe him or her.

I've worked with Photoshop and other programs since they were first offered. It has jaded me considerably.
But I simply find it impossible to believe that a Granny of that size could fly in the manner depicted in that film.
Maybe we should submit it to the Mythbusters to investigate. It would be right up their alley. And it would make darned entertaining (and informative) tv.
