Actually, this is Christians fault. If Jesus hadn't gone and been born, there would be no Christmas and this guy would not be forced to use a dangerous weapon to hang Christmas lights.

Another ladder related terrorist incident.

Why oh why won't Trudeau do something, anything?... At very least a selfie holding a placard with a sympathetic hashtag

Now that I really think about it, Jesus' father was a carpenter that likely built terrorist-style ladders.

This is most definitely the fault of Christianity

because of how horrible it is to deal with family and relatives during Christmas, I'm surprised he didn't hang himself with Christmas lights.

haha Funny thread.
But, actually Hayseus was born sometime in late March or early April, so we cannot really hang the Christmas light incident on him. (hehehehe Gotta love puns) And we would still likely be celebrating something (probably winter solstice) around the same time as Christmas anyways.

Ladders must have been Michelangelo Simoni's fault when he was painting the Sistine Chapel ceiling.

I don't think you're taking the risk to Canadians seriously enough Anna.

You should be deeply worried.

Ladders should be banned and we should all buy a Hydralada from New Zealand.
I bought one several years ago use it to trim trees pick apples and thin the crop in
summer. During Christmas I bring it to the house and put up my decorations around
the house and the surrounding trees
It is a bargain a Hydralada elevated platform is cheap they are ony about 26 thousand
dollars surely everyone can afford one no more ladders
Beside refugees and migrants can use ladders to climb over barbed fences this is
not good

BAN LADDERS NOW!

The Ministry of Labour in Ontario essentially did ban ladders and they expect workers to get a scissors lift to change a frikkin' light bulb.

I would be to if I had yet to climb a ladder safely. My teacher, 'Walks with a Limp' is real attentive to possible safety factors. . . . after 'the incident'. Can't blame him really.

Sad to hear a pile of sticks is smarter than most people here.

At my previous gubmint job we had to watch a ladder safety video every effing year. And some twits still hurt themselves standing on table and chairs because they knew ladders were dangerous.

You should have moved to the 21st century, Here is your ladder for changing light-bulbs.

Wonder if it comes with a 6sp tranny?

So what part on that gadget changes the lightbulbs, Mhrtz?
Or can it lift a human?

If you never fell off a ladder then it was time well spent.

The adapter that fits on that flat part on the top. Page 37 of the optional equipment section.


Feed the vid to your co-pilot in the car looks entertaining.

The people mover model better include some options like the shell of the car is actually inflated air-bags so you bounce to a stop rather than screech to one.

That would be well over 10,000 years ago.
Or maybe you come from some area of the planet that were developmentally challenged enough not to be able to figure out how to make ladders.
