    HAHAHA, thst stupid woman kept running her trap about making the magic happen by singing. The kids were all silent like, "Yeah right lady, we're not stupid!" LMFAO! Poor kids are probably traumatized now. I'm with Dickey, must have been a real geius behind the planning on that one.

    I'm sure this sounded like a great idea...

    Just reinforces the "KISS" approach, you know?
    I am now a past chief and the views, opinions, and comments are mine and mine alone. I do not speak for any department or in any official capacity. Although, they would be smart to listen to me.

    Just emailed this to our TRT. Classic, really like Petzel's Technical Bulletin at the bottom.

    This is actually my zone. Shortly after one of the crews went over and asked Santa if he wanted repelling lessons for Christmas.

    Please tell more! Was this guy a pro rigger in a former life, at least a rock climber? Took the Pioneering merit badge in Boys Scouts? Read a book on it once? Saw it on YouTube? Please, I need to know...

    Actually it looked like he was confident coming over the rail, so I will assume that he knew (somewhat) what he was doing. I feel for him, getting the beard caught in his descender, not something you would commonly wear while on rope, but... still man, that was awful.

    Apparently he had done this a few times before, pretty much a freak accident.
