In another life I was a risk manager for a hedge fund. At the fund we used options to hedge our stock position, and when the stock would drop, we would use the profits made on the hedge to reinvest and grow the position organically. My function at the hedge fund was to know exactly, to the penny, how much was at risk at any given moment. With normal IV levels, we would maintain less than 10% of the account at risk at any one time.
For someone to be attracted to a job like that, these qualities have to be passed onto other aspects of daily life. At least that is the case for me. When I look at a potential recreational activity in my daily life, I really like to weigh the risk vs. reward, and come to a conclusion that has the best rate of return. In the case of this rope swing, the risk is ending up very dead, or at the least very broken. The reward is, well, what is the reward? With that said, it seems like 100% of my account (my body) would be at risk. This makes the world’s largest rope swing, a cut and dry, oh hellz nah!
I will say it makes for a pretty cool video. What do you think, would you take on the world’s largest rope swing?
