What a silly place to stand

To think brave men in lifeboats have to look for them if they get swept away.

Going back a few years we were talking about waves breaking over the sea front

and people getting wet, "but its not dangerous" said one. I went off and filled a

plastic bag with 5litres of water and then went back and hit him with it!

Despite seeing it coming, he went down on his knees (luckily it did not burst)

but after the initial laughter there were some very sober faces.

Can you imagine how many tons of water can catch you taking your breath away

and rolling you disorientated into the pounding sea!

Its not just the waves and getting wet ? these waves are throwing large boulders and lumps of concrete around like pebbles .

These idiots should be fined. If they get swept out to sea some one else has to risk their life to save these idiots

Just saw someone on the news this lunchtime walking a dog along the prom, the dog looked terrified and rightly so.

I think people like that need sectioning. .. :ph34r: . ..Peter

Here in the Lakes we have idiots flinging themselves off bridges in hot weather. The council now have a bye-law and the I think one lad was arrested last summer.

Hi,

Some years ago crossing the Australian bight in a force 10 in a 10,500 ton ship we had some of our rails removed and a 10 ton derrick bent like a banana. Later a weld on the bow plating opened up- we had to put a wire round the focastle and pulled it tight with a winch then put cement in the opening. The passenger wore lifejackets, food was basic cutlery was handed out, the accomodation was flooded as the joint between the main deck and superstructure opened up on each roll, we had 3 days of this- we made port ----- some didnt. as said people just dont understand what the sea can do.

Scenes like that are what the Darwin awards were created for. Muppets.

 

That's exactly what I think! A friend of ours who is a Special Constable and a friend of the Police Sergeant in Newquay who went into the sea at 3am the other morning to retrieve a drunk who thought he'd have a swim had other words. We also had a chat about the Darwin Awards and agreed that they were created for exceptional and unique stupidity . ....... at present there are a lot of people out and about who wish to meet their end in the same manner and therefore should not qualify once dead!

Agreed (on both points), if it was down to me I wouldn't send a boat out to look for them.

The odd thing is the best photo position is this one. The photographer who took this made a great SAFE choice and was rewarded by superb shots.

Very true - one of the rules of composition: include a sense of scale. And this photographer executed that rule very well! :)

Is it not possible that the photos were taken from some distance away using a long telephoto lens? In point of fact the "muppets" might have been sensible enough to stand in a safe place but, of course, the foreshortening effect of a telephoto lens has apparently brought them closer to the action!
