Some People's Kids...

...are only alive because there is a God, and He has a sense of humor.
Posted for scale.

And also because there are some folks willing to go up on top of an 80 year old rickety wooden building with previous roof collapses, and haul their drunk asses off with a Stokes litter and rescue hoist, to keep them from falling off a 2' wide catwalk onto the ground 200' below.

And that's all I'm going to say about that.

I also note for the record that the base is still federal property, that graffiti tagging, trespassing, and breaking windows are all federal felonies, and that judges seldom find the story as funny in superior court Monday at 9AM as it seemed Sunday night at 9PM.

Oh, they were just filming a new "Covered California" commercial.

In real life, the whole thing would be paid-for, although the state might try to ding you for the aviation fuel. The good people in Sacramento are working on a fix for that, as we speak.

I've been in one of those dirigible-hangars; the P-3 flight I rode from Adak landed at Moffett Field in California in 1980 and taxied into one of their cavernous hangars. Kids are climbing these rickety monsters? They need a little sign at the base of the ladder, "Consider it Evolution in action." (H/T to Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle)
