This definitely happened in Orange County, California.

Nope. Nebraska.

Ah, meth it is.

I'm going to pull up the covers over my head and go back to sleep.

Over or under?

Im fine with people like this dying.
Unfortunately they usually cause massive traffic problems for which I wish they could be killed twice.

I knew a guy that would do shiat like that when he was right out of high school in the 90s. He also did steroids, smoked crack, and once ended up in the hospital after jumping out of a car driving 65mph on I-95 while tripping balls. So I'm guessing this guy is on drugs. Either that or Crossfit.

Wow, stickers too?

Anyway, I wouldn't want to cross 72nd ST on the ground even.

Came here to say meth. Maybe PCP.

Meth.

So he wasn't over traffic, he was over the breakdown lane/shoulder. Still dangerous AF since there's the fall risk plus the risk of collapsing into the slow lane when your ankle/lower leg shatters, but not quite as stupid as doing it over the traffic lane.

And just reading this post made mine sweat. I can't stand to even think about that shiat.

Or the risk of getting clobbered/emulsified by a semi truck that wanders off the road a bit.

Yah. Crossfit. Or, someone is doing it for a tik tok video (friend off in the distance filming.)

Scary tag?  Only scary if you can't afford your car insurance deductible.

When I read the stories of 'daredevils' falling and dying all I can think is, "They were the only ones who thought it would never happen to them."  On the other hand, even if they fell from a 1000 foot tower their death was a lot faster than any of my family that has passed away, so there's that.

Ya know if they built a complete street that was of a reasonable width for the middle of the city, with crosswalks more frequent then once every never, maybe folks wouldn't resort to using the sign gantry like monkeybars...

I've been to the hotel in the upper right of pic near there. There's a crosswalk about three hundred feet away at Grover st.
Monkeybars in center, I-80 at bottom:

That crosswalk at Grover is super helpful when you're trying to get from the hotel to the bank without adding an extra unnecessary quarter mile to the walk.

What bank? There's a couple of credit unions a few blocks down Grover, and maybe an ATM in the gas station at the corner.

Aah, thought that was a drive through bank at one end of the monkeybars and a hotel at the other.

I get what you're saying, but honestly there's no excuse for making streets in the city that pedestrian hostile, then leaving them there.  Depaving is a thing.
