Nice work there. I see he has a lot of others with a similar theme: people in precarious positions taking selfies.

Taking 4 – 5 pics of the same scene, I think he should only show the one he deems the best (just my opinion). That's a bit unprofessional as you have to wade through ~ 20 pages of unclassified stuff.
If buyers are interested, he can always show them more.

And I wonder, for your second point, how he manages security…

Nice, I hadn't seen that one yet. The guy in the back likely stopped because he "dabbed." Meaning he likely touched the ground, so he didn't "clean" it. I definitely wouldn't dab there. Because I'd be on the non-massive-penalty-for-failure side of the bush.

In today's attempted suicide news:



Guy falls 25,000 ft, without a parachute, and lands in a net.

I was surprised by the audience he attracted. What a boring event. You're either going to see a guy land in a net, or you're going to see a guy hit the ground at terminal velocity and explode like a watermelon. :|

For contrast, something for our claustrophobesphiles: entering the Rising Star Cave, or the pleasures of excavating remains of Homo naledi.

I've read about spelunkers who got stuck, thought they would die alone in the dark, but then after a few days of losing water weight from dehydration, managed to wiggle free. How about that? Gotta wonder how often they wake up at night in terror. Sudder. :(
