As a child, did you go on the swings at the playground? Did you have a scrund about them? I did, and I've since learned that many other people had this scrund, too. What is it?

Was it about how swings work? What you can do on them? Is swinging right round so the swing goes over the top bar relevant?

******** SPOILER **************

Ooh, how humiliating!! Solved on the first try!! I had a childhood scrund that if you pushed hard enough, you would swing "right round so the swing goes over the top bar." Please check out my new puzzle, which is MUCH HARDER, I hope.

I'm sorry! I didn't think that would be the whole solution, just that was everyone's big obsession when we were of swinging age :p

Why apologize for your cleverness (or my stupidity)? I'm the one who should apologize for posting such an unchallenging puzzle!! Please check out my others, including the replacement for this one.
