I liked to climb high shit as a kid. It's a rush when you're high up, the wind hits, and your grip is the only thing stopping your body from plummeting to a messy end.

A risky thrill? I'd say it's safer than driving. Your climbing instincts and the adrenaline make you hyper-alert, so you're not in real danger of making a mistake. With driving, no matter how careful you are, there could be a drunk driver around the bend, ready to take your life in an instant.
RockBolt
Yes, nothing unexpected could possibly happen while hanging by your fingertips at the top of a crane

Hooker
"I'd say it's safer than driving."

That makes you an idiot.

FatFatuousNation
I'd put my deaths-per-kids-climbing well below your deaths-per-motorist. Whether or not you're an idiot, you have a poor sense of risk. And if you never climbed anything as a kid to discover the acrobatics you can get away with without slipping, than you're either fat or a pussy.

retrocious
Fewer people die from climbing cranes than from driving because fewer people climb cranes than drive. The beauty and power of Statistics!

Hooker
Just so I have this straight, let me spell this out, because I think I'm having a bit of trouble with it. Since I think climbing a crane without any safety precautions of any sort is more dangerous than driving a vehicle under normal circumstances, I was (or am) either fat or a pussy? And this all hanges in the balance of an argument that adrenaline makes you invincible?

Randroid
grammy's apple tree made me an authority on climbing stuff fuck yeah WHOOOOOOOOOOO

It's either that or you're trolling. I'm betting on the latter.

waxeater
Seriously dude? SERIOUSLY?

ZawBanjito
Ah yes, it's been a good day. The perfect video of perfect stupidity and the perfectly stupid comment to top it off. Goodnight, Zaw. Sweet dreams!

FatFatuousNation
Just because you have feeble arms and poor coordination, Hooker, doesn't mean that the rest of us can't safely do pull-ups from cranes.

I would, in fact, support a government resolution to make crane pull-ups a mandatory exercise for highschool gym classes. Hanging hundreds of feet above the ground puts one's other problems in proper perspective, thereby promoting psychological well-being in addition to upper body strength.

Squeamish
FFN, I am 5-starring this for "Just because you have feeble arms and poor coordination, Hooker, doesn't mean that the rest of us can't safely do pull-ups from cranes" alone.

Billy Buttsex
Oh, christ, fatfatuous nation. This is just an embarassing conversation.

oogaBooga
5 stars for billy buttsex being the voice of reason

Clarkekentyboy
I too enjoyed climbing. The Sycamore tree out my back was massive when I were a cub. This however makes me shake. If only his Mother could see him now.

Pookles
AAAAAHHH! AAaaaaAAAHHH!
kingarthur
Well, pull-up guy must have superhuman strength to support the weight of his massive balls.
Frank Rizzo
"This place used to be off limits, man, 'cause some drunk freshman fell off. He went right down the middle, smacking his head on every beam, man. I hear it doesn't hurt after the first couple though. Autopsy said he had one beer, how many did you have?"
Muddy Mae Suggins
poor mitch

"You're dead, man, you're so dead. Look at the blood stains right there. "

Billy Buttsex
I'm drinking and this made me uncomfortable
sparklefatty
I'm tanked on Zoloft and I couldn't watch this without stopping.

-1 star for his friend not stepping on his fingers.

GOOD GOD DON'T DO THAT WHY ARE YOU DOING THAT
Caminante Nocturno
I was thinking that I could do this, until one of them decided to start doing pull-ups. Then I shut up.
a flaming monkey
Well...They certainly proved their point...
Frank Rizzo
to bad he didnt prove newtons point.

Udderdude
I've seen videos of people falling off those things. It's not pretty. These guys are fucking retards.
Ahriman the Creepy Lurker
why in the ever-loving name of fuck would you do this

after only one viewing, pull up guy has stolen my balls and added them to his collection. His scrotum has 23,784 balls in it.

YOU'VE DESTROYED MY BELIEF IN AN ALMIGHTY GOD.

danthedrummer
This made my palms and feet sweat to watch it. Oh man.

I have a friend who always loved to climb up and around tall things. Real acrobatic stuff; made me nervous more than a few times. Eventually he broke his back in a fall while free soloing an icy cliff and was paralyzed from the waist down.

The first thing he did after lots of healing and PT and titanium rods around his spine was to go down a mountain on a quad mountain bike. Fucking cheers to him.

Moral of story: some people are fucking fearless and cannot be deterred, while people like me get all sweaty watching people doing these stunts in a video on the internets.
zatojones
fearless people can be deterred. unfortunately it usually takes their own death to do it

Wombles
Deterrent comes before the act; his own death wouldn't prevent or discourage him from doing this.

Anyway, I'd like the opportunity to climb one of those arrest-free. Hanging by your hands alone is another WORLD of reckless.

Disaster
I didn't believe it at first...
thought it was going to be a green screen...
then i saw pull up guy...


and shit myself....

btw..what a dumb shit..
Goofy Gorilla
It's really scary to me because of my limited upper body strength.
waxeater
Those dudes aren't exactly the picture of upper body strength either.

Squeamish
1:40

AAAAAUGH NO NO NO STOP GET BACK ON SOLID GROUND YOU STUPID FUCK

Is it wrong for me to wish these idiots had lost their grips?
Testicles of Doom
Call me a fat pussy, because if someone suggested this to me I'd say "FUCK THAT AND FUCK YOU."
FABIO2
I'm only afraid of heights when there's a very real chance of falling and dying (no safety line).

I had to stop watching this halfway through =(
poopskin
I'll think of this the next time I'm up on a 40 foot ladder :)
sparklefatty
Fucking guy takes a break to look down in the middle of his chinups.
sparklefatty
Wait a minute. Look carefully at 1:00. They're wearing parachutes.
j lzrd / swift idiot
I'd hope to god they were, at least pull-up kid looked like he had some kind of pack on his back.

Between knowing Hauptmann Insane-o possibly had a parachute, and not seeing even a single, easily-recoverable, slightly missed step or handslip, I was still barely able to make it through.

If he'd accidentally say, given way a tad bit while climbing back up, I would instantly have squealed and slapped my hands over my eyes to avoid the obligatory, shit-eating "I almost fell down! Hah!" grin that people like this inevitably do in those situations.

j lzrd / swift idiot
But then it's fake.

Shit.

quantumcreep
I really doubt that's a chute. I'm no master on parachutes or anything, but that seems a little too small for a proper chute.

Also, are they too low to pull a chute and land safely?

William Batty
It's not fake. Check this out:

My balls just shrunk back into my abdomen and I dont think i'll see them for quite a while.

Minus 2 stars for shitty music.
Lies, lies, LIES!
First thing I've seen here that's made me physically uncomfortable.

Excuse me, I have to dry my hands.

Terms of use violation? WHAT?!
MightierThanTheSword
Holy shit. I couldn't finish this.

What the fuck are they doing up there? No, no, no. Just - no.

This new version, resubmitted by Gymnosophist, is different. It adds the still pictures and excludes the shot of one climber pushing the other.
