Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates is one of the richest people in the world, and on The Ellen DeGeneres show, he revealed a little bit about what having all that money is like for him.....And then, he opened up to DeGeneres about what it's actually like to be a billionaire. And it involves a trampoline room.
Gates said he doesn't have too many extravagances in his life, but he does have a Porsche and his own plane, admittedly "a huge indulgence." But DeGeneres pressed him, asking if he had an "aquarium with sharks in it." He doesn't have that, but he said he does have a room dedicated to trampolines in his house. "We have a trampoline room in our house, the kids like that," he said. "Indoor trampolines, I recommend it. […] It's a room with a very high ceiling."
The trampoline room has a 20-foot ceiling, and overall the exercise facilities, including locker rooms, a sauna, and a steam room, take up 2,500 square feet. Business Insider reports that it took Gates $63 million and seven years to build the 66,000-square-foot estate.
Of course, Bill and Melinda Gates put the vast majority of their own money into their charitable foundation, helping people around the world. But hey, when you have billions of dollars, why not have a room dedicated to trampolines, too?

VAN NUYS (KABC) --
Early Monday morning, team Doom is practicing at the SkyZone in Van Nuys, gearing up for the big tournament.
"Doom, they are our champions. We actually have their trophy up there," said Jennifer Hernandez, manager of SkyZone in Van Nuys.
Dodgeball is a simple game but it can be serious: Five people per team with the goal of slamming balls at the opposition, knocking them out of the game. All while you try to avoid getting hit yourself.
It's the ultimate elimination game but Justin Payan admits: Cheating can happen.
"You get hit you don't go out," said Payan.
"That happens quite often, actually. People know who they are, but that happens. You get 'em back," said Kol Harrell of Los Angeles.
These guys have been playing for eight years and love dodgeball drama.
"I play dodgeball courts, mud, snow, but on trampolines it's a lot of fun because you're jumping up in the air and you have an enclosed court so it's a lot of fun," said Doom team member Vince Marchbanks.
Studies show the trampoline is a great low-impact workout. It's easy on joints and on those who might be carrying a little extra weight. It stimulates the lymphatic system and burns loads of calories.
"I've played sports growing up and this is by far one of the hardest things I've done," said Payan.
It's a friendly competition, but there can be injuries. "Broken fingers, black eyes, broken noses," said Payan. Marchbanks added: "torn retinas."
The tournament costs $100 per team. This Sunday is the quarterfinals.
They expect 20 teams to bounce it out to head to Chicago and the $50,000 grand prize.
If you'd rather take a peek than play, admission is at 10 a.m. Sunday. It's free and open to the public to come on down and see what this is all about.
Some guys from the JOOG Squad decided to combine surfing and jumping on a trampoline. This new phenomenon is now coined Trampoline Surfing and they even got Steve-O from Jackass fame to join in on the madness. I guess the Florida waves are too small and they needed some extra excitement. The guys strapped a round backyard trampoline to two paddle boards and off they went. Check out the videos:
Here is the original trial of trampoline surfing:
We are back with more fun activities and games that involve a trampoline. This time it is the classic game of charades played while jumping on a trampoline. The guys at Dude Perfect have put together their version of how the game is played. We recommend using the video as a reference but altering the rules to your desired liking. As always, safety should be your #1 concern so please keep the safety netting on while playing trampoline charades or any other game. Enjoy and let Trampoline Los Angeles know how your game went.
Now, let’s learn how to jump on a trampoline.
For simplicity sake, let’s assume you lack some basic coordination.
You should work to strengthen your leg muscles and increase coordination by doing some basic balance exercises.
I think this is where jumping gets difficult – you are using your legs to move, so if your usual habit is to clench your legs together or squeeze your butt, then your body has no idea how to close the bottom of the box with just your pelvic floor muscles while you are using your legs for jumping.
There are not many national treasures left to behold in our great country. One very sexy national treasure is the smoking hot Megan Fox. She captured us in a pair of daisy duke shorts in the blockbuster movie "Transformers". She even sizzled as a teenage vampire in "Jennifer's body". Finally, Megan bounced on a trampoline as reporter April O'neil in TMNT.
Congratulations to Megan Fox and rumored baby daddy Brian Austin Green. We hope to see her back in a pair of spandex soon.
Can trampolines really keep a person from getting the common cold? It sounds a bit of a stretch at first, but the science could actually be there as pointed out by Sherlock Holmes on the popular television drama "Elementary". Sherlock Holmes is the eccentric character played by actor Jonny Lee Miller. Jonny Lee Miller was formerly married to Angelina Jolie and the two actors are still good friends.
In the episode titled "No Appointment" of the 4th season of the show, Dr. Joan Watson (played by Lucy Liu) finds Sherlock bouncing on a mini trampoline and asks the obvious question, "What's with the trampoline?". The following dialog ensues:
Watson: What's with the trampoline?
Sherlock: It really is shocking what they don't teach you in medical school.
Watson: Okay, forget I asked.
Sherlock: The lymphatic system, unlike the cardiovascular system, has no pumping capability; it relies on muscular contraction.
Sherlock: Bouncing up and down is effective, because it stimulates the system's one-way valves to open and close simultaneously.
Watson: You're increasing lymph flow to boost your immunity to keep your sinuses clear-- got it.
Sherlock: Seemed like a wise choice.
Watson: Why? Are you getting a cold?
Sherlock: Not yet, but we live in close quarters and I detected a phlegmy rattle in your voice last night.
Watson: I feel fine.
Sherlock: Do you?
Modern trampolines come mostly in two shape configurations – round and rectangular. Main difference between them is not in appearance, but also in overall safety, price and user experience while bouncing.
Rectangular Trampolines VS. Round Trampolines – PERFORMANCE
Rectangular trampolines give you higher jump while absorbing more landing force. Also, regarding user experience, main difference is int hat that rectangular trampolines will give you much more space for doing tricks, while round trampolines will try to direct you into the center of trampoline. Simply, it is a choice which more professional users typically stick with.
Rectangular Trampolines VS. Round Trampolines – USES
Round trampolines are designed for home and recreational rather than professional use. They accommodate less weight and force than rectangular trampolines, which are best suited for ever growing demands of gymnasts, divers and aerialists.
Rectangular Trampolines VS. Round Trampolines – PRICE
Round trampolines often feature a lower price than rectangular models. This is due to the inherent natural strength of the circular frame, which requires less added support than a square or rectangular frame design. Manufacturers can build round trampolines relatively easily, and at a low cost, which then gets passed on to the consumer.
Trampolines offer the average person a moment of blissful fun. But you should also think of it as investment into the future. It is great for health, it is great for fun, it is even great for sunbathing. Just think of all possibilities it has to offer. As you will see, rectangular trampolines are overall winners when it comes to everything, but that certainly does not mean that you should not consider round trampolines for your backyard. Remember – put safety first and have fun!
