Humanity has actually declined. We are getting stupider and stupider and stupider as time passes. I guess it's just the natural order of things?

They are just looking for short cuts.

Political correctness.

It died as soon as suing someone for anything became a thing. Now you have to have warning labels on coffee because it's hot, which in my view is ridiculous. Suing is fine in very limited circumstances; if you get hurt because you're a moron, you have no right to blame it on another.

I also find that it's a trend in very intelligent people. My partner and my brother are both extremely intellectual but ask them to do anything that involves common sense is like asking to cure the common cold.

1. Seen such before, once in a video guy riding his motor bike, and then he tried to kick a car while driving and you know.... he fell down hard...
2. Yeah, guess a rope is safer or at the last part but if they didn't have anything else then that what could they do? (not having those lifters, stairs to the roof or doing it from the highest floor if able)
3. Wow, lets steal that fire extinguisher, oh god its buring please steal it faster!!
*burned to dust*
4. I don't think that is so bad if it was unloaded + safety (could be one still in chamber) and all, but its not as good then using the side or just the hand.

1. True I seen so many people be unsafe on motorcycles as in the picture I can't comprehend putting your kids in harm way.

2. If I worked at the building and there was no way up I would refuse to do the job. My life is worth more than what i'm sure there paying them. Say something does happen who takes care of their families. I teach our guys that its ok to say no if they feel the job is to dangerous or they don't have the right tools for the job. I work in safety and a driver's hands are the way he provides for his family. I teach them what could happen in the blink of an eye if they take shortcuts, let their guard down, or get in a hurry.

3. As for the fire extinguisher it's a serious issue but also one I found a bit funny. I could imagine a guy trying to put a small fire out only to be like who's smart idea was it to put a lock on the extinguisher.

4. In the video the guy says they are shooting at a firing range so more than likely the gun loaded. Even if it wasn't I wouldn't point one to my head. Only need to be wrong once. When I shoot guns for fun the guys and I always put them down or in the holsters to make sure no accidents happen.

Just wanted to share and maybe get people thinking about what they see that is potentially unsafe.

The funny thing about "common sense" is that it's often dead wrong. Common sense would've told you that the sun revolves around the Earth, because that's what we saw happening. Common sense would've told you that if you are experiencing a chemical burn you need to flush with water immediately. That might help, but it can also make things worse. Common sense would've told you that any fire extinguisher will work for any fire, because hey, it's a fire extinguisher. Some are equipped to deal with multiple sorts of fires, but not all of them are.

Common sense is a shifty, lying bastard sometimes.

Yeah, but like when crowed is it better to have it up (laying on shoulders) or more likely to shoot the feets of another in such croweded space (under traning where it be walkin around)?
Still in the ground it could bounce.

Never trust safety lock, hate when some ignore that and runs around with it like a toy...
My little brothers thinks it safe I keep saying "its dangerous" but they won't lissen will not let them hold one until they become more secure of it (I have been a little while shooting with an "old" rifle else not much exp)

Yeah if a house fire remember to turn off the electricity since its not just spraying with that thing and hope for the best!
