A photo received from the reader in the USA actually appears to be taken in the UK of a man working on the chimneys a large house.
The man who does not appear to be in his first flush of youth, is working at a height of around 12 metres and is standing on one of the top two rungs of the ladder, he is clearly totally fearless or missing a lobe in his brain. In case you ask one assumes that the wires behind him are further away than it looks and are telephone wires and not electrical…..
We did look closely at this photo, thinking that it might have been ‘photoshopped’ but while we remain suspicious that it is a forgery – given the window heights and ladder length, if it is then it is quite a good one. Ladders this long are not something that a homeowner might buy or even use, especially in this manner. It requires someone who is far crazier than our usual Death Wish merchants.
Comments and feedback welcome.
Definitely one for our Death Wish series
Have a safe weekend
