Behavioral Issues #3

Posted by Rick (Toronto, Canada) on 4 August 2018 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

We noted that both men carried cameras and were filming their rooftop adventure. "Rooftopping" is a common contemporary form of thrill seeking, with many Toronto buildings "summited" via illegal access so that the interlopers can make images that go viral. Most of these activities are conducted under cover of nightfall. This was brazen. I opined that the man on the roof peak wasn't going to be satisfied with merely standing at the precipice of a lethal fall, one wind gust away, and sure enough he blew our minds by climbing upon and sitting down on the narrow triangle that serves as this building's highest point. He used both of his hands to film the city below and various birds flying nearby, as his more cautious companion filmed the proceedings.

Please forgive me for saying this....I dont mean to sound like a paranoid old dude, but with all the whackheads going around with firearms and other armements, l sure hope these two are not part of an advance duo "doing research" for a future "event! "
Poor old YYZ has seen more than enough bad stuff this year.. sorry, just a worried old man <3
