    Wish i could Dan - experimented today with my treadmill and the traction the slick rubber mat affords just isn't enough to go that long - 68 seconds was pushing it, that other treadmill was built for endurance apparently. Willing to forego this but nice to have the glory for a few days anyway.

    Art I know you'll be crushed, but I just came across a YouTube video that beats yours. We'll need to deny your attempt. Please try again and take down the winner!

    Obviously,there are lots of Slinky fans out there who love them because I have had over 12,000 views on the first version of "Slinky Shenanigans" on You Tube, from all over the world. Of course, maybe it has something to do with the title, which I chose very innocently, but have to admit that those words might have a certain meaning to some viewers :-)
