FLASHBACK: Philippe Petit walks a tightrope between the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City August 7, 1974.

You can see this brilliant story of derring-do in the film Man on Wire.

    Thanks to the evil men sent by Osama bin Laden ( may they all rot in hell , amen ) nobody else will be walking a tightrope between the twin towers

    .Mrs. Mahatma….out of all the 9/11 conspiracy theories I’ve heard his has got to be the most stupid…are you suggesting that Osama Bin Laden blew up the twin towers to terrorise the tightrope walkers?
