I'm not too sure if that guy in the top pic is welding the gas tank on that truck or not, what do you think?.

I can't make out the license plate on the back of that truck, but I jave a sneaky suspicion this might be another South-of-the-border Darwin candidate...... [Linked Image]

The Incredible Hulk, of course! That's why the green truck with the green license plate. [Linked Image]

Can we say: Insanity?! Suicide?! I wasnt thinking of the roofer not having a hard hat, but rather, one would think more on the lines of the forklift holding up the scissor lift. Jeeze!Whats wrong with these pics, hmm, let me count...

I'm not actually sure who took the photo's.
They were posted at a Occ Health and Safety Forum in Australia.
lil suzi,
The thing I'm thinking with the bottom pic is this:
How did they get that scissor lift up there, in the first place?.
Also, I'd sort of hope that that section of lean-to roof, is well anchored to the wall of the building!. [Linked Image]
One last point, I can't help but think, that there is some sort of an exit/entry/fire escape to the left of the pic, that's been covered up by a new sheet of siding, where that ladder goes through the roof of the lower section.
Anyone else get that feeling?.
