A classic.

I first watched this video before people were posting videos on the internet. I'm glad it made it through the transition because this guy is royally stupid. He sure seemed a lot more sure of himself before his feat of wonder. Something tells me he should have tested 'er out beforehand.

The brilliant commentator says, "it's hard to watch this without laughing". Yes... and? She continues to say "the ladder slips". The ladder doesn't slip. The mechanical genius only had it attached at the bottom. He used the fence a second point of stabilization but he climbs so far up the ladder that it acts only as a fulcrum. He has so much leverage way up there on the ladder that he's able to miraculously flex what he formerly thought was an inflexible object.

Once the ladder flexes, it leaves him wiggling his legs in midair as though if he scurried fast enough, he'd get enough traction to propel himself over the water instead of falling head first into the cement. Luckily for him, his head broke the fall from what would otherwise mean certain damage to his legs.

How did this guy not drown? I'd love to hear "the rest of the story"!

He sure looked "bendy" when he hit the ground. Idiot.

How could this happen. He took every safety precaution. I guess sometimes you're going to get it no matter how careful you are.
