I see you're new here. Hi! Why don't you head on over and introduce yourself in the Get Tilted forum?

That is the friendliest I will ever be towards you. It's nothing personal; I'm just a maladjusted prick is all. Really, ask anyone.

Moving on, this properly belongs in the Found on the Net forum. Also, those sorts of working conditions are illegal in most of the world. Roofers and framers in developed nations get things like safety harnesses and hardhats and (if they're union) coffee breaks every twenty minutes.

I used to work as a climbing instructor. I've also worked construction, although I was part of a (sadly non-union) forming crew and thus worked below ground level instead of above it. Neither heights nor construction sites faze me. That said I would not work under those conditions because anyone who has a choice and still does so is a drooling idiot. I would therefore posit that anyone who is capable of answering yes to your question and lives in a country with such luxuries as roads and clean water is also a drooling idiot and may choose not to reply so as to attempt to hide this fact. On the other hand, their drooling idiocy might render them incapable of making a proper value judgement. So who knows?

Quick rule of thumb for knowing where to post things: anything found on the net (ie sites other than this one) that is not music-related, a film trailer or pornography belongs in the cleverly named Found on the Net forum. Music belongs in Music, film trailers in Entertainment and pornography in the super-secret gentlemen's club section that you may or may not have access to (I have trouble keeping track).

Welcome to TFP. We ask those posting new threads to frame the discussion. You need to go read Creating Threads: A Primer to see what we expect.

I'm going to close this one for now, but please PM any staff member who is online to reopen this once you know what you want to discuss. You can also request that this be moved to Found On The Net if you just think this a cool video and no discussion is needed.

Thanks, and to echo Martian, welcome!
