Honestly how incredibly dumb are you people?


If they wouldnt have attempted to sail into the unknown you wouldnt even exist american.


geez
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 84810521


the people who built the modern world weren't randomly risking their lives for no reason.

people like Fritz Haber weren't sky diving or skiing down mountains and are the reason half the planet is even alive today.

or maybe the modern world was built by bros at the X games sponsored by red bull.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 82374875


LaL you think you can do these things without risk management and risk assesment? You would end after 5s...


Guess who was member of a fencing student society?

Proper saber fencing... But yeah keep on biasing yourself.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 84810521


so proper saber fencing is how the modern world was built then? got it, mystery solved. i'll use my risk management saber fencing to sail onto mount Everest and build the modern world with red bull and gopros.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 82374875



No it was built on guts and not shaking in fear...

But let me guess you are vaxxed right?

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.

Well then you just enjoy the flight.

Good old abysmal fear... it grips the weak and makes them shake, but some leap into it to crush their fear head on.

When you make it back, this shit is gone.


 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 84810521



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.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 82374875


Well Well then dont be alive and work yourself to death for nothing... very noble...

We are built to charge.

I dont feel alive being a mindless drone, i feel alive doing these things.

Watch Mcconkeys Documentary and learn...


 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 84810521


yeah, got it all figured out. you know there's a reason you only see younger people doing a lot of this stupid crap in these videos.

because it's a bunch of stupid crap, and they either die or wake up and realize it's a bunch of stupid crap.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 82374875


It is the fallen human condition of "competition" I can do what you can do but only better. It is a sign of a society in crisis later day gladiators doing it for the crowd & $$$$.

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.

I spent a lifetime 30 to 110 feet off the ground. Once you get accustomed to it, you forget that you can die by falling off of a tall step ladder.
If I'd known I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of myself.

I was climbing an old wooden ladder and fucked myself good. Half way up to the roof a rung broke and I literally bolted to the top of that fucker and then wondered how I was going to get down safely.

Fair enough.

Better to be left wondering how to get down than laying on the ground with your femur staring you in the eye.

Working high iron is a win win situation . The higher you get the closer to God you are . Taking the quickest way down opens the door to God's kingdom.

Those are acceptable terms . In my youth I liked it . In my old age I miss it .

let’s take your argument to the extreme

technically, you should be afraid of walking near a mirror. one slip and you could crash, falling into broken glass and cut an artery

now, the reason *you* don’t have this fear, is because you are confident you know how to walk

some people are confident enough in their balance, they perceive this as a similar threat. the world wouldn’t function without people lacking this fear; skyscrapers, radio towers, fire watchers... these people provide a security those with this fear cannot provide

you should be thankful for their existence. you should find it cool that someone has belief in their body and skill enough to put themselves in harms way for your sake. don’t be so selfish and judgmental op, be thankful on this day

I used to install and service cell phone towers in the late 90s and early 2000s..

The highest I climbed was 450' but normal 150' monopoles.

I was always afraid of heights and still am...I just got married too early and had to pay bills.

I used to install satellite dishes in spite of being scared of heights. Less so now but I still don't like it.

Crazy job without safety equipment.
I'm surprised more installers don't die on the job.

Sometimes I think back on my closest calls and get a jolt of adrenaline, a mini panic attack.
