You are right that a lot of people have lived after jumping from the deck but if you look closely this guy is way way way above where the deck will be. The bottom of the loop he is standing on will be the deck. This guy is probably a little over double the height of the deck.

A lot of people have survived falling off the deck of the Golden Gate. Then again, a lot of people haven`t. Either way, that guy`s balls are definitely a serious detriment to his balance, which only makes him even more of a bad ass.

Gaw, if you fall in you`re screwed. Not only would it be like concrete, but if you managed to survive the current would drag you down and out. The current in the San Fransisco Bay is intense.

`danky: Solid. Lead. Balls.`

You`d hope not. The extra weight would make it much harder to balance..

Woooow. And at that height, it doesn`t matter that you`re landing on water. I`m afraid of heights. This is messing with me head.

The Mackinaw Bridge here in Michigan was built in much the same way... very interesting stories about how both of these amazing bridges were built

Interestingly enough, SarahofBorg, it was once believed that new bridges needed a human being (usually a female virgin) buried in the foundations to ward off evil spirits.

Yeah I saw some documentary on it and hundreds of people died making the bridge from stupid accidents, but thousands were happy to have the job anyway because it was the ONLY job. And supposedly there`s a body in some of the concrete for one of the supports.

Hmm... Could be a start of a meme if it catches enough speed... This guy could be walking the suspension wire over a bowl of fruit loops by tomorrow if someone wanted to.

Apparently 11 people died in the making of the bridge. That wouldn`t be acceptable in modern times.

WhoaHeyDude and Fatninja01 remind me of the wife while watching a scyfi movie - "that`s not possible..." - no kidding, but your irritating need to point out the drating obvious is far more bothersome than the "shopping" ever could be

This looks like it was definitely originally black and white. I guess it technically could have been in color, but it doesn`t really matter. Either way, this is an awesome pic. I love how undeveloped it is.

Not only did they have to work like this- they worked roughly 12 hrs a day for 6.5 days a week. Unions came into being for a damn good reason.

People weren`t more hardcore back then. Employers cared less about their people, and the government wasn`t forcing them to care yet. People would do this today if it was what they had to do to put food on the table. Thanks to things like OSHA, they don`t. (Not to take way from this guys balls of steel, just saying that people would do this today if they had to like they did back then.)

They all had to have elephant ball transplants before starting the job. It was required.
