(Nearly a) Bl**dy ladder!!
« on: Dec 08, 2005, 18:55 »
Just had a lucky escape putting some random stuff up into my loft ( I know this is'nt bike related, but hey...) was stood on the 2nd from top step on my 2year-old stepladder, when suddenly, the b*stard

Collapsed!

luckly missed the bannister rail, felt it whistle past the back of my head :), only injuries grazes & bruises to my back, legs, and arm...very lucky!!

Also missed the oppertunity(damn!) to go over the bannister & fall 12foot-odd down the stairs...

One off the legs had bent at 45 deg, I wasnt twisting or nowt, just dissappeared from under me!!

Not recommended!!

Needed a drink after that one, was sweating like Gary Glitter... ;)

Similar to binning it on a stair set but without the glory. Glad you got away with it, nothing like a near miss to wake you up a bit, on or off the bike.

Step ladders are evil b'tards.  Had an interesting experience involving a rapid descent with an armfull of scalextric from the loft on monday afternoon....

not good at all!
was just thinking the other day while getting out the loft "If this was to fall over, I would seriously hurt meself..." then had one of those having a nightmare moments when it actually happened!!
While falling thro the air, the only thing I thought of was that of all the dodgy stupid stuff I've ever done on a bike, I was about to die putting stuff into my loft....how crap! ::)

Those funny pads on the sides of the legs of dainese suits...


They're for falling off ladders onto... ;)

Why dio all houses seem to have the loft door thing right next to the stairs? I always think of how easy it'd be for me to fall down onto the stairs when going into my loft if the ladder broke or fell over.
Braaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaap

I wish i was getting my Scalextric down.
I havent played with it for ages, and i've got all my Dads 40+ year old stuff inc cars, track, pits, buildings & people.
Strange how Scalextric brings out the kid in every guy i know

Scalextric is cool!!
better cred than Hornby... ::)

got a new ladder yesterday from Argos, can be used a stepladder, with stair-type offset legs, or can be slid up into a double-length Loft ladder! Superb!

The Random Small Child who ran into the end of it & fell on her arse with a red mark on her forehead & a surprised look on her face did'nt think it was great tho... ;D

Scalextric is ace, we had a sunday pub lunch session a couple of years back and after a few ales we decided we could just make Toys R Us before closing time and pretty much bought every last bit of track they had and had a lovely 6 lane set up.
