Stupid.
Oh god the stupid it burns.


#3

Hmmm. I’d perch it on top of the ac unit that’s already there and then hop over to the other side.

“Oh, those bars on the windows? They don’t mean me!”

To me it looks like he has some kind of harness, but it’s poorly visible - maybe parachute…


#7

It’s kind of blurry, but it looks like he might actually be tethered through the widow in front of him. It appears like it would give him just enough slack to hit his face on the ledge if he fell.


#8

You know what they say, “Safety second!”


#9

Even so. . . does he not care about dropping the AC?


#10

Well, If he doesn’t care about his face…


#11

Nope, just a backpack. For balance. Along with wearing socks for traction.


#12

Why? I came into this game for the action, the excitement. Go anywhere,
travel light, get in, get out, wherever there’s trouble, a man alone.
Now they got the whole country sectioned off, you can’t make a move
without a safety harness

This chap was a British national icon. (He died of natural causes btw)

How he gets his enormous balls over the ledge at 4:40-4:55 is a mystery to me.


#16

Falling to your death is natural causes too!
It would be highly unnatural if he slipped and then just hovered there!


#17

You know what would have made this job easier? A partner. I know Spiderman works alone, but still.


#18

Every part of my body that is retractable did so upon watching that.

I came to complain about the aspect ratio of the initial video, but didn’t expect to have my eyes assaulted in the comments, as well.

In socks! This is why statistically women live longer.
