    #25 scares me or any of the natural made material ones

  • Roscoe

    Some are impressive achievements, some are downright insane.

  • IDrinkToMuch

    #2 #19 #32 repeat FTW!!!

    • Mike

      Almost looks like a Tetris fail

    • Ashley

      I think it looks like a number one. Maybe he is trying to claim first.

      • IDrinkToMuch

        no but next time i think i might be first i may just write first just in spite of you!

  • Bryan

    Some of these look like they just built them for the fun of it..lol Where is #28 leading to?

    • Left Coast Redneck


  • Poppin Fresh

    do they have ropes or anything? That looks awesome but also scary as hell.

  • WoogyMonster

    Like this Ferris wheel #27, I feel like I've been taken for a ride with no Chivettes post today.

    • Allena VanWerkhoven

      Pretty sure that's because the Chivettes aren't posted until Friday…

      • Allena VanWerkhoven

        Nevermind, I hadn't gotten to the post about no Chivettes yet. Friday feels a little less brighter now.

  • 'Fraid-a-heights

    You couldn't pay me enough to do that work.

    • Mike

      Honestly it looks more crazy from the ground then when you are building it. Building Scaffolding was one of the funnest jobs that I have done.

    • Left Coast Redneck

      Buddy of mine does this. He offered me job doing this for at least 15 grand a year over what I make now. I said no.
      Routine for him is 180 feet in the air.

    Does #21 remind anyone else of the end of Empire Strikes Back? http://thechive.com/2011/04/07/i-have-a-whole-new

    • drew

      Was my first thought exactly. Would be even better if there was only guy.

    • Rod

      Cloud City, I guess it's easier to manage with two hands.

  • Muffin

    Is anyone else reminded of the doozers from Fraggle Rock looking at these?

  • KeyserSoze

    holy cow. My asshole tightened up like crazy on some of those….

  • Lia

    I would rather live in a refrigerator crate and eat nothing but ramen noodles for the test of my life (and I *hate* ramen noodles.

  • FeeFeeG

    All I can think of with #31 is Rush Hour 3! ❤

    • bob

    Yep, that's safe.

    • Jimmy5923

      was gonna post that pic and say "looks legit to me" lol

  • NotMe

    I hope the people that have to climb these get paid in Chivettes.

    • Mike

      Nope they get paid crap…but at least there is good overtime.

      • BloodScrubber

        Put a Chivette up on top and see how fast some of these asses get up in that mess…

        *to clarify, i mean asses in an endearing way…

  • EJK

    Yeah this is me NOT doing any of that.

  • pjmc

    Pic 17 is part a a stage my company built in san Diego in the early 90s for the Ameirica's Cup. We do jobs like that all the time

    • pjmc Jr.

      Wrong! MY company did it in the late 70's for a revival of Funkytown that Walt Disney was going to produce. Also, it is a time-lapse photo – although it appears that several brave men are up there, it is in fact only my father Darren – my hero, until he got a rash from bamboo and died.

  • Robi5150

    An OSHA agents wet dream.

  • xXbeermonkeyXx

    if the economy keeps plummeting, thats where we'll all end up

  • Dirty Dingus

    Maybe scaffold made of re-bar?

    • Wing Zero

      Maybe Leo is posting drunk again.
