Stupidity can also sometimes make the human mind creative.  A French guy named Alain Robert has the most peculiar 'career.'  He's a professional climber of the world's tallest buildings.  Uptil now he has climbed more than 80 such buildings around the world.  His climbing events are unofficial but they attract huge crowds and cheering which include plenty of media photograpghers as well.  And, after each such event, Robert ends up getting arrested for a while and paying fine.  A few times he's also had to pay heavy fines.  However, the guy is a lone and simple professional climber.  He goes about with this self-given task alone, without an entourage.  He has no manager, advisers, secretary etc.   And he certainly has lots of courage!

Visit to the following site to read about the adventures of Alain Robert with photos and videos of all his climbing events.   It's pretty enthralling.

LOL!  yeah .. I saw this docu on TV.  Pretty amazing, really.  Just watching it made me dizzy.  with my fear of heights, I cannot even go up comfortably a spiral staircase from the ground floor to the 2nd storey. 

No wonder Robert has "contemplated his death" while on one of his daring errands.  This is something he should quite naturally be contemplating every day!   What makes it still more surprising is that the guy has a family with a wife and 1 or 2 small kids.  But he doesn't even seem to care for his life for their sake.
