Where's the spark ?

Today in London there is a minor uproar about a chap who skied down the longerst escalator in the world at The Angel underground station. It has been posted on youtube, the link is below. What it has made me think about is that there is
such a fuss being made, about something so splendid. Now don't get me wrong I do believe in a time and place, but the
chap had someone at the bottom, stopping people going up. So no one was put in danger. The British Transport police have said they want to question the skier, and there may be charges. We are living in an age when free spirit is being crushed. The spark of adventure and risk is a no no. I say more power to the people who climb buildings and jump off, hoping the parachute opens, and more power to the skier of The Angel station, I bet he enjoyed his starbucks after............

Thanks for the link. Fab to watch it after a long day at work. Reminds me of being a child and sliding down the bannisters at school.

Heartily agree with your statement regarding risk and free spiritedness.

Let's 'aaave it!
