Hahahah, needless to say, I didn’t eventually climb it, nor could I get anyone who was with me to climb it.
Sigh…I remember back when I was 12 and I used to hang out with guys who were like 8 or 9 and you could always get them to do crazy/dangerous stuff like climb up electrical poles and dangle off the spiked-barbs. I guess all my friends are just too old and wise these days.
Incidentally, if you’re interested, I got a nice comment from the commentor I was complaining about yesterday in this article. I always say, I don’t mind if you disagree with me, just disagree with me in a COMPELLING way that makes me think (and gives me fodder for new blog topics). You can read the comments there if this article was too short for you (and add some more, I like reading them).
