They got sick hours later—not while on a Zipline.

“They got sick hours later—not while on a Zipline.”

What fun would that be?

Number one reason to not lick zipline handles.

Do zip line places ever clean the helmets, gloves or harnesses? I doubt it. Cleaning gloves is more or less impossible.

they found an article about possibly contaminated drinking water being served on their zipline tour.

Ok now it makes sense.

slows it down if vomiting is forwards and speeds it up if vomiting is backwards ... Newton’s Third Law of Vomiting Whilst On a Zipline ...

Nobody would have clicked on a story titled "Woman became ill after drinking contaminated water."

And during a simultaneous event, if the mass of the vomit exceeds the mass of the’other stuff’???

And how would containment of the ejecta effect the change in velocity?

They showed symptoms hours later. The exposure happened on the zipline.

Every zip line place I’ve ever been to don’t provide gloves. Bring your own if you want them.

Every zip line place I’ve been to provided and insisted on gloves. Anecdotes are funny things. Next time I do it, I’ll bring my own, if they and their insurance provider will let me.
