15 Hazardous Job Sites That Are Literally Not Safe For Work

Don't let OSHA find out. Or the union. They'll have a kitten if they saw these places. So much for employee welfare. Some of these solutions to get to hard to reach spots to work are pretty clever. Most are just massive safety hazards waiting for a lawsuit to happen. But sometimes people have a one track mind, and just need to get done doing whatever they need to do, caution and common sense be damned. This guy knows all about when common sense goes out the window.

Spider-Man really phoned it in on this one. So much so that it feels like it's not even the real Spider-Man.

Thousands of students were gathered together in green for a "St. Fratty's Day" party at California Polytechnic State University. In the video you can see many people standing on roofs, exemplifying the poor judgment of drunken college students. That's all fine until one roof just couldn't take the weight and crashed to the ground, taking several unlucky students with it. 

And here's a better angle of the collapse: 


Firefighters responded to the situation and shared this photo of the aftermath. Some people were taken to the hospital but no one died.

According to FOX6NOW, everyone is ok, but one person sustained a particularily nasty injury:

The city said in a statement that in the most serious injury, a person’s thigh was impaled by a piece of debris early Saturday. At least seven others were treated for cuts and bruises. None of the injuries are life-threatening.

The local fire department in Patos, Paraiba, Brazil were called to a bar Feb. 5 with a report of an aggressive monkey with a kitchen knife chasing men.

Lt. Col. Saul Laurentino of the Fire department said the monkey drank a glass of rum at the bar before picking up the knife and chasing after men, leaving the women alone.

"It was a bar staff oversight that ended with the monkey drinking some rum and taking the knife," said Laurentino.

Sounds like some of the bar patrons were just trying to enjoy the simple joys of a monkey knife fight:

Broom, you've done a terrific job sweeping. That's why we're giving you a promotion. That is, if you won't buckle under the pressure.
