    I don't know, looks like a perfectly safe chair to me. And he's wearing gloves.

    LOL... yeah.... he could't find one of them rolling office chairs :wink:

    If that's the kind of thing they do in broad daylight with the press taking photos I'd hate to think of the shenanigans they're up to when no ones watching...

    That's how he remains insulated from ground. Chair keeps his boots from being grounded, and gloves keep his hands from being grounded.

    True Story : Lived on 10th floor condo in the 1990's and was watching a game on Sunday afternoon when I catch what I thought was a shadow across my window out of my peripheral vision. Twenty minutes later I hear sirens, and look down to see a very busy parking lot with a tarp covering something. Turns out the 24th floor condo owner above me was watering plants on his balcony standing on a chair with rolling castors. His wife didn't realize he was missing when the authorities knocked on her door. Tragic and strange.

    China in no way has a monopoly on unsafe acts. These are so cute

    Well, no fall arrest equipment, but it could be worse:

    Well, in defense of guilty unsafe culprits, at least they tackle problems in very creative ways

    This guy tops it, not because he managed to walk for fun on a rope between World Trade Center Towers, but because he managed to install complicated gear on top of towers pass the buildings security.

    Trust me on this... Compared to what else you see while working in China, that is nothing.
