    I always kinda wanted that job.

    Then again, I`ve always been the kind to tempt fate and laugh when I won. I`m gonna hate it when that comes back and bites me in the ass one of these days...

    Why is everybody so impressed with the cameraman? He`s about 5-10 feet higher than those other two guys and if any of them fall off those extra couple of feet won`t make one damned bit of difference. They should be wearing hardhats because if lets say the guy holding the camera drops it or a hammer or something and it hits a lower guy in the head that will suck, plus if you fall off they have something to scoop you up with.

    It`s high up, but I think I`d be alright as long as I was strapped to it, as these guys obviously are. I mean if you`d fall, you`d be caught--worst case just for a second--and be able to grab one of the million handholds and survive...the only real danger would be getting pushed off by the wind at the point.
