An unusual amusement has appeared at the Dina Bazaar lately. Every wisher can bid his muscle power for just a 300 tenge bet and get as much as 6,000 tenge if succeeds.
The only rule is to just hang on a crossbar with both hands and keep yourself suspended for two minutes. Seems easy, isn't it?
However, in twenty minutes watching guys trying I saw nobody who managed to keep his weight up in the air even for a minute.
Though the crossbar itself seemingly was hard to grip with a big man's palm, many men could not go past but try to earn $40 in two minutes.
My attempt to talk to the organizer failed, as he was arguing with a client, one of the many who lost 300 tenge on the way to the 'easy' 6,000.
Bystanders say in a few days of the crossbar competition nobody has made it to two minutes yet.
