Scotland 2010 Edinburgh Fringe Festival: diabolo artists Jacob & Nate Sharp. [01:13]
Video 3: "The Kid". Jacob & Nate Sharp performing a death defying act in wich each of the brothers juggle three big knives towards each other, over the head of a little boy. The boy stands perfectly still in the middle of them, on a bloodstain. If the boy moves, he's dead. That's the "death defying" part of it. In case something goes wrong the brothers Sharp will probably get away with it because the boy's parents aren't in the audience, so there's no one to complain.

That is, what exactly is it that they are running away from, uhh? LOL Led by a 60-strong band of latter-day Viking warriors known as the Jarl Squad led by the Viking chief or Guizer Jarl..... Resplendent in winged helmets and crimson cloaks over leather jerkins, they carried mock battleaxes and knives polished to a high sheen. Although the Vikings spent much of the day making public appearances and civic visits, the highlight of the event is always the grand evening procession...... Up-Helly-Aa is the largest fire festival in Europe, and is celebrated in Scotland's Shetland Islands every January. This part of Scotland is the most northerly part of the United Kingdom, 600 miles north of London. There are 100 islands here, 15 of them inhabited, and it's in Lerwick that the fiery festivities take place. Although Up-Helly-Aa is a relatively modern event, it derives from the ...
