It's only a matter of time for this idiot, stopped free running because he continuously injured himself and now jumps off tall objects instead. You can tell before he is even half way down the descent that the moron is going to hit the water badly.  noooo:

Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

"From what I could find, it is the fibres in the air that cause the problems," he said. "There was no wind when we went so I was under the impression that a short visit won't hurt."

Quote from: BBC
Road signs warn people against visiting the town, which still retains a handful of residents.

Or perhaps it is not as dangerous as claimed... ::)

It would be interesting to know the ages of the residents and how long they have been there...  rubschin:

I reckon we need Scooby Doo in there to work out what all those warning signs are about....

In your book nothing is unreasonably dangerous in advance of seeing a dead body or 10.

Bear in mind that this is a country that is chock full of wildlife that can easily kill you. That quite possibly lends a fairly blase outlook when it comes to danger...  rubschin:

Nah, Oz has a very keen and imho practical safety culture, almost famous for it (NZ the opposite).  But if you want to be an arse and overly risk killing yourself you still can.  Very sus though going to that town and bringing asbestos fibres out of it on your clothes and shoes
Well, whatever nevermind
