  1. THAT was scary.

  2. Amazing. Small correction: the top part that they climbed was the construction crane, not an antenna. That's pretty obvious from the photos.

  3. If they had equipment they'd be gay, huh?

  6. As if on command, my palms did indeed sweat and I couldn't get a good grip on my mouse fast enough to stop the madness! Insane!

  9. While it's a bit hard to tell with the fisheye lens, the climbing actually looked pretty easy.
    They seemed to have gone up stairs to get to the
    crane or whatever it is at the top.

    They were probably more worried about the police.

  10. "Why are we even promoting or supporting anything Russian?"

    ZZZZZZZZZZZZ. Why do we support anything American? The US uses foreign slave labor to make its products, invades countries that are not threats to it in the slightest, uses drones to kill innocent people and so on and so forth.

    Why do we support anything British? German? French? Chinese?

  11. Of course, there must be construction workers who have to do this, too. But I guess they wear safety harnesses. As for me, I get vertigo when I climb up a ladder to change a lightbulb.

  12. Whatever rocks your boat.

    I can no longer feel my feet.

  13. Doesn't that thing sway in the wind?

  14. F*ck all things Russian.
