    I can't make my mind up about this kid.

    He seems fairly damaged, to me. Which is a shame. Don't think much about his taking risks - to a point, that's up to him; but I feel really sorry for his Mum. And I hope he's got BUPA; it's not really fair to expect th NHS to spend £££,£££ trying to put him back together if he drops off, eh.

    I think he is messed up, and his poor mum has to live through that. His luck will run out one day. :) x

    My hands built up a sweat for some reason, when the 'mustang' guy asked him to hold him by his hand, one handed! There's gotta some pressure having a total stranger's life in your hand!

    It was a mad, crazy program, as already mentioned, I felt sorry for his mum, she must be thinking, have I given life to you for you to just go and risk it and throw it away (it could happen anytime).

    There were a few scary moments that had me on the edge of my seat!!

    If he falls off at the height he climbs it's not bupa that he will need it's a shovel to scrape him off the pavement, no one could survive a fall at these heights.

    @Ghost That last part does help me arrive at a conclusion!

    @B5NUT Well, quite.

    But Confucius say: Man who wants to climb to top must first climb middle. ;)

    I've a few stories from my Dad's 36 years as a fireman that'd make your toes curl :/
