We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Jeez, people sure have different reactions to heights. My first thought when I saw the lake down below was, "Wow, what a great cannonball that would make!"
Did you notice the tether line and the guy he was passing being tethered at the waist? Pfft! A mere 700-foot fall. Wimp.
I did think, however, that the guy missed a great opportunity. I would have hooked the camcorder to a small rope, then, right at the end, held it out over the ledge, kind of waver a bit like I was losing my balance, then dropped it over the edge.
