Insane is the right description for this video, yet it is very common to see instances of young people doing dangerous things without any apparent reason to do them apart from the thrill of doing it. Another part of human nature that somehow must have aided in our species survival to have had the lasting impulse that it has had. Another part of the black hole we remain ignorant of, that of human behavior. We just accept without question, which is another mystery.

Notice how most, (if not all) are under 25 yrs old. They say the "common sense" part of the human brain, doesn't reach full maturity till mid twenties. Let these young guys view what they've done twenty yrs from now, and see if they'll attempt it again.
The men that work the tops of those towers for a living, are a special breed. Not only isn't there enuff money in the world to get me to do that, I physically and mentally, could never do it. My body wouldn't let me. :shock:

I might be able to do the part of the climb that is enclosed or using safety ropes but there is NO WAY I could do the free climbing, no safety rope part of it!
