Think You’ve Got a Bad Commute?

Try free climbing a transmission tower that’s taller than the Empire State Building. This guy has some serious cojones.

Watch the video at i09.com: The Scariest Video You Have Ever Watched in the Name of Science. Be sure to watch the whole thing; it just gets crazier as you go along.

First,what are “conjones”? Maybe you mean cojones?This video shows how too many tower climbers die every year.They die wearing the very equipment, that if used properly,would save their lives in the event of a fall.This guy is not an example of a professional tower climber,he is an embarrassment to himself and the industry.If he falls one day,I hope him and his “conjones” don’t take anybody else out on the way down.

I think I’m going to donate a man card to this guy. No quantity of mancards can account for the sheer testicular fortitude that he posesses.

Holy crap. You couldn’t pay me enough to do that.

Yeah, that takes some SERIOUS manhood. And I would guess he is getting paid to climb that tower, so that does make him a professional. Maybe he’s not an expert, but he is a professional.

Whatever he makes per year, it is not enough! I wouldn’t do it…to risk my life every day just to support my family? It would have to be to defend freedom or something…something bigger than what car I drive, where I live…WOW…

If that wasn’t manly I don’t know what is! I’d be proud as hell to say I climbed higher than the empire state building up a steel rod sticking out of the ground!
