I stopped watching it. I don't like ladders and elevators that much, and that is amazingly stupid.

Yep just like that, life was even in black and white.

Loved that show as a kid. We would all sit down and “tune” the TV to channel 12 and watch Highway Patrol.

look on the top of a crane the next time you are around one
i have climbed up the jib to the top with a cutting torch slung over my shoulder
to fix a fouled line.
cut the line, re-string the main pulley
with out a safety harness or tie ropes
back in the day, we had no idea what a harness was
