I'm reminded of the Magnificent Seven movie. Steve McQueen said a guy fell off a 10 story building. On the way down, as he passed each floor, someone asked, How's it going? The guy replied So far, so good.

The pictures of that guy falling and hitting didn't bother me. You take a risk, sometimes you pay the price. People need to learn that. I've taken a lot of risk in both caving all over the western and parts of the eastern US; as well as fifth class rock climbing in Yosemite. I knew the consequences if I misjudged my abilities.

Now in my 70's I have scaled back my risk taking somewhat, but not entirely. You haven't lived if you haven't taken a risk IMO.

I'm maybe a decade behind you, and my whole "risk/reward" analysis has gotten much more strict whenever I catch myself about to do something silly.

What if later reports revealed that he was a convicted serial child molester/killer who had broken out of prison and was a fleeing felon?
Please, and what if it just someone with a poorly treated mental condition that never actually hurt anyone..

All we have is this video, and you're grasping for a reason to be a ghoul...
It's beneath you

Well, in that case it wouldn't be appropriate to make light of it. OBVIOUSLY.
