Shortly after, a new entry was made in the aluminum ladder safety manual.

Do NOT use ladder as a bridge to cross bottomless ravine, particularly if wearing spiky mountain climbing boots.

Burgundy, burgundy, burgundy… A trip is planned there for the next weeks, with an old friend of mine (old friend, but young lady).

Google "Shipwreck Kelly."

One of the progenitors of the "sit on something really high for a really long time."

Also, the long forgotten but fascinating documentary Gizmo has a few examples. A woman crosses Times Square by her teeth.

Literally.

Thank you Youtube:

Go right to 8:00.

Enjoy!

Interesting. We seem to be going through a bit of a resurgence in this sort of daredevilry lately.

As for the Stylites, that's fucked up. I'm a bit skeptical of some of the claims. I seem to remember that Mark Twain wrote something about them and their bizarre practices of "self-mortification".

Stylites not dead:

Qavtaradze making the 20 minute climb to the top of the rock after praying with others in the monastery at the foot of the cliff. Once he is too frail to use the ladder, he intends to remain at the top until his death.
