I'm an ex roofer. I hated edges, I have an inner ear imbalance that makes me unfit for dealing with heights these days. A 'healthy fear' didn't occur to these people. A lack of fear that arises from self-knowledge of ones abilities, is much better then fear really.


We have pretty much burned our bridges at this point. Unless you’re prepared to mindf*ck yourself, and gaslight yourself, and confess, and convert, there’s no going back to “normal” society (which we couldn’t go back to anyway, on account of how it doesn’t exist anymore) — CJ Hopkins

Re: If you lack a healthy fear of heights then you're fucked in the head
I’m like the poster who likes heights but not depths.
I love standing on a Mountaintop and being able to
see vast distances.

If we did not have people who favor up over down,
who would do those jobs? I get claustrophobic a
little, in caves. I’d be a terrible candidate for bunker
life.

casually doing stupid stunts that could involve dying if you make a mistake isn't some noble pursuit where they triumph over fear. it's just not valuing anything at all.

guarantee you the moment they slip and fall that fear is front and center, that's why they scream.

Blame social media for some of this. This generation has a ton of people who are look at me selfie whores. Selfie deaths are common especially on cliffs.

There is a reason they ask if you skydive, rock climb, scuba dive, hang glide when you buy life insurance.

I have an acquaintance that was friends with a diver in Florida. A couple years ago he didn’t make it back to the boat. Dive buddy said he was right behind him. After searching for hours they found his empty wetsuit on the ocean floor.

Watch I survived on Vice channel. Some crazy shit happens out there.

Ladder jobs. Best case scenario. A stabilser at top of ladder. Drill into wall. Use a harness.

Could never get used to the norm. Which would just be a ladder on the plastic guttering but thats more safe then a ladder, lower than the point of work and exit and returh ( to roof pitch )

This is what the boss expected though.
