    My buddy took this picture and sent it to me thinking that it was a stunt that I would likely be doing. I just don't get what goes through people's minds sometimes.:confused::eek:

    thats really not that bad haha I've seen guys put hands in a chipper's drum to retrieve a dropped bolt when the engine was still running and the clutch could've easily been engaged!

    OK, I've seen way worse too hahaha. Still pretty dumb. I bet that bucket is nice and icy after days of pushing back piles.

    Honestly...I think I'd rather be tied off inside a loader bucket than dangling on the end of a ladder sitting on a slicked pavement. Doesn't seem too bad to me.

    Why not just go up on the roof and push it down from the top?.:confused:

    Personally I would do it, but never allow an employee to do it. Heck at the farm I have been on top of a 8ft step ladder in a fully raised backhoe bucket trimming trees around fields. Some of the stupider moments of my life.

    It must just be that I'm scared to death of heights. An 8' ladder is high enough for me.:laughing:

    Looks to me that building is not code. There should be some kind of bar preventing the snow from slipping down.
