    Well, he did avoid them for the 2-3 seconds he was in free fall :tbo:

    In my fantasy world, the swat team would of told the moron that he had 30 minutes to climb down, or they were gonna shoot his ass off the crane :supergrin:

    How appropriate someone with the user name "The-Fly" would post this story.

    Didn't that James Bond film, Quantum of Solace, have a scene where they're fighting on a crane? Maybe that film inspired this BG?

    That creates a nightmare if he had a gun. How far is a safe distance? He sure has the high ground.

    Saw the video. He only scored a 8.5 by the judges. His form wasn't that great.

    He broke as many laws as he could, but he couldn't break the law of gravity.

    He found out that it was not the fall that hurt. It was the bloody impact at the bottom.

    The trick to getting a high score on high dives is to not make any splash at the end....

    Four of the judges gave him a 9.0, but the Russian judge gave him a 5.5.
