I'm surprised that doesn't happen a lot more often.

He lost his hand?

He was inspired by Russians who climb to the top of radio towers and skyscrapers, so he climbed 25ft up some scaffolding. That's some fine #YOLO you got there, son.

It was the early hours of Thursday morning when ambulance services responded to 999 reports that someone had fallen off scaffolding at the viaduct on Waterloo Road.

It's amazing how many people reported the fall! And such a strangely odd number, too!

/yes, I know
 
2014-02-20 05:09:41 PM
So did he get the shot ?

Sounds like nature intervened and performed a douche cull.

"Larking around" at a "silly height".

You British are just adorable.

Can we get a hold of the selfie?  It would be great for a Fark Photoshop contest.

There have been a number of deaths in Russia and Ukraine among skywalkers, including five teenagers who died in one night when they fell from a height at the Chernobyl nuclear reactor.

You know, hanging around Chernobyl is pretty dangerous in and of itself, even if you don't climb up the scaffolding.

Well at least he wasnt planking that would be stupid.

Holy shiat, click on the temperatures and you get wind speeds of 3,163,510 MPH and an estimated 999999mm of rainfall.

Well I've always heard about very cloudy/rainy weather in the UK, but didn't realize it was  this extreme...

FTFA:
The fall comes as a craze featuring daredevil photographers from Russia has gained international attention.
'Skywalking' is the newest extremely dangerous photography fad to hit the internet.
Skywalking involves a photographer making his way up to a death-defying height, and snapping a photo to give the viewer a perspective they have never seen before.
Many of the photographers are in their teens and carry out the stunt without safety equipment.

So much wrong here....

trying to take a photo of himself at a "silly height"


They won't see us waving from such great heights,
"Come down now," they'll say
But everything looks perfect from far away,
"Come down now," but we'll stay...

I'm slightly, if not morbidly, curious as to what kind of damage a 3,163,510 mph wind can do.

You'd think with those temperatures that rain and clouds would be impossible, but then with those wind speeds any clouds that did exist would be circling the planet a couple times a minutes. So maybe it is bringing in clouds and rain from elsewhere to get instantly annihilated.

If only Lando had been there to catch him with the Falcon. Alas, he was having trouble getting it started that day and waiting for Chewie and Leia to drop by and give him a jump.

That's Mach 4124.5.   Space vehicle re-entry is Mach 20.

Now that I know that's called taking a skywalker selfie, I'm not sure I want to take anymore.

I thought a Skywalker selfie was masturbating with your left hand while jamming the stump where your right hand used to be up your ass.
