This is fun! 

Far better to rock climb than find a way to injure yourself with the washing machine???!!!

My stupidest near miss was moving the ladder over while the crowbar was still on top. The crowbar whacked my face with the right angle end, instead of the pointy one. Good thing. Really great shiner around my left eye, versus...not pretty.

The part in the article pertinent to rock climbing, IMO, is vigilance against complacency, and thinking in terms of what could reasonably go wrong and, again, within reason, mitigating those risks. Probably all of us do this balancing act many times, and we are all different in how we work it out. YMMV, considerably.

Best, OLH

Works for me. Ice cream for the send!  ;-)
