Novel approach to clean a chimney.
Sorry, I had a date
Hey No actual Vermonter would be this stupid.
Oh, my God. This is like watching a horror movie.
There's only one commen there that I can see. Am I clicking the wrong thing?
Sandals? What a wimp.....we do it barefoot up here in NH.
Really. Every time I stop into the superb natural foods coop in my neck of the woods, I find myself craving a hot dog after dodging all the extremely skinny late middle-age guys with gray pony tails and sandals clogging up the bulk food aisle.
Couldn't have been me, I'm past late middle age...if you're gonna respond and you want me to see it, please do it without delay...
Just an audition tape for someone hoping for a spot in Jackass XX
I know I am going to hell for my thoughts......All I could think watching this is.....hope he falls off and dies so we do not have to pay for this moron in his retirement years. Darwin Awards is going to follow this guy around, he is sure to die in some spectacularly stupid way.
That's a disturbing thought. He's young, virile, on a limited budget and brash. I was there at one point in my life too. Hard to go as far as a death wish for him when I have known folks like this and they turned out to be pretty decent, independent folks.
I'm not condoning his setup, it's spooky. But I admire his spunk. He's just young and at this point assumes he's immortal. With time, that will change for sure.
Yeah, we've all seen this. "Watch this. Hold my beer." He's the poster child for that mindset.
The f***ed up flue is bad enough, but climbing up on the roof in shorts and sandals and without gloves with the intent of taking off the cap... I don't even have words for it.
I work with younger engineers that rock climb etc.. They make this look like a home exercise. Not for me and I'm not endorsing a single thing about his setup or methods. I just admire and appreciate the brashness of youth. Enjoy it while you've got it.
With respect, I very much doubt that serious rock climbers -- at least none of the few that I've known -- have this kind of casual obliviousness towards what they're doing, Their apparent attitude may seem to be the same, but they're not this stupid. Perhaps because I'm female and have seen too many good men kill or disable themselves -- and thus cripple their wholly innocent and dependent families' wellbeing -- I'm less tolerant of it than your average male, who has a degree of kinship with it, But to me, giving it the tiniest degree of sympathy or approval, even on a distant Web site, is really bothersome. His behavior is just stone stupid and arrogant, IMO. Would putting on pants and shoes and carrying some gloves have impugned his manhood so severely? He knew very well this was a stupid thing to do and did it anyway, and filmed himself doing it to boot. Oh, wow. I'm so impressed.
Please excuse my anger and my bitterness, but I've known people whose lives have been ruined by this kind of absolutely pointless stunt.
There is only one comment now, but I find the author's description of the video more telling:
Get off his case guys! At least he wore appropriate work boots.......um, scratch that.
You might like this other video from him.....I hate it when I forget to clean the back cut!
This is pretty good too....got to love the ladder work.
My wife just said " He's chooching that ladder wrong!"
Some people should not be allowed near tools
I was referring to the author's description which Adabiviak posted.
So from all his cutting videos, apparently he doesn't believe in wedges
He is cutting with the top of the bar. It works, but that is not how the saw is designed to work. And he ought to seriously sharpen that chain. He's cutting dust there, now chips.
WOW.There are so many unsafe & wrong things happening here I dont know where to begin.
I think our friend should keep to trees more this size.
OMG thats retarded!
love the ad by google at the bottom for "chimney liner depot" classic!
