    I only performed one, leaving it low, to encourage other to attempt to break it. I'd love to see you attempt it or any (non dangerous) record for that matter. Do some research on sword swallowing and just how difficult it is to simply just swallow a sword. How proper alinement is Critical to prevent injury or even death. The sword(s) (and there lengths) dictate what motions your body can and can't conform to. In doing acrobatic sword swallowing, there is always a higher risk involved. You could be too vertical and tip over, wrists could give out causing a fall, head could turn slightly causing scissoring of the blades, the pommel(s) could hit the ground if the arms aren't straight enough, if the body bends at the waist instead of the hips the stomach could be punctured by the sword points. All these things are what keeps all but 3 sword swallowers from attempting acrobatic stunts while sword swallowing, one being my student and sister. Have a great day James :)

      I have, yes. Obviously you didn't do enough research on sideshows and sword swallowing, other wise you'd have found info on my sister and I. We are the only sword swallowing siblings in the world, possibly in recorded history. Just in case you were going to ask, no I will not instruct you in sword swallowing. Too dangerous. Good day.

      I did do a little research... What about The Pickled brothers sideshow? They are brothers and they swallow swords. Don't worry, I'm only interested in sideshow history and the people doing it. Not the stunts themselves, I'll leave that to the people that really want the attention.

      what are their names? Erik Kloeker and Travis Fessler? why do they have different surnames? My sister and I are full blooded siblings. If you'd like to speak more, I'm sure you can find my e-mail address.

      There are a variety of reasons that they have last names, divorce and adoption is one. That doesn't mean that they aren't blood related. Either way... even if they weren't. What does it matter? Does your claim of being the only sibling sword swallowers in the world mean ANYTHING to anyone? Other than you?

      You know, I'm going to give you some advice I once heard one of my teachers tell another student. If you spent half the amount of time and ambition that you spend criticizing me into every aspect of your life, you may actually succeed in life. I've noticed you sir, are a troll. You haven't linked your recordsetter username up with facebook or any other social networking site, nor have you commented or on any other persons records but my own. How I see it you just sit at your computer and harass me because you can't do what I do. You have absolutely no activity on this site besides your rude comments on my records. You haven't even commented on my youtube channel. It seams as though you don't want people to know who you really are. I'm sorry you dislike me for whatever reason. By the way it's very childish to bombard me with all these rude comments, especially when you failed in not making it so obvious that this is a personal vendetta against me, if that is not what it is. I find it strangely peculiar that you only harass me and haven't even commented on another persons videos. Nor have you attempted to post a record. Very childish. Have a good day James Lipton.

    Okay. Mr. Penney. Here's what was talking about. You can't do a cartwheel. And one doesn't dictate the use of the word consecutive.
