Ok here's a Darwin Award thrillseeking effort.

About 18 I think,  we broke into a building site and climbed to the top, 15 floors or so and walked across beams and scaffolding......stoned on pot Smiley

Maybe - it just shouldn't happen.


Equipment failure features very highly in fatalities, and if you've been a keen viewer of the aircrash documentaries on TV you'll know that cutting corners and slack practices by maintenance staff is a common occurrence.

The greatest factor militating against the maintenance of safe equipment is chatting between the employees. As a one-time inspector myself I put banter and boredom-busting chatter between workers as easily first place on the list that leads to faulty equipment and jobs not done properly.

In sensitive areas where safety is imperative it's important not to employ conversational egotists, immature personalities, and wogs people whose ethnic culture demands an almost constant stream of backwards and forwards 'baby-chatter'.

Filipinos, Yugoslavs, Greeks, Indians, Italians, and such.

You gave a good point -

I certainly won't be jumping out of an aeroplane with a parachute.

WHy would anybody even reasonably sane jump out of a perfectly good plane?

Now rock fishing, at least there's a reward at the end of that endeavour.


Getting swept off the rocks and drowning,  great reward Smiley


not what i had in mind, but since you went that route I'll poin tout that it's no more of a reward than going splat

this is more the reward I had in mind

REPORTER: The condition of the budget will not be an excuse for breaking promises?

TONY ABBOTT: Exactly right. We will keep the commitments that we make.

It's called 'multiculturalism', and what this means is that certain ethnicities display characteristics not shared by others, and hence the word 'diversity' makes its appearance.

You can't pick and chose, John, being in support of 'multiculturalism' so long as it flatters ethnic egos, but then condemning reasonable observations of ethnic characteristics as 'racism' when it doesn't suit.
