Think You Have The Balls To Do This Job? I Know I Don’t [Video]

There are a lot of dangerous jobs in the world which we seem to be seeing more about on television these days with shows like Deadliest Catch, Ice Road Truckers (crazy man) or any number of other reality type shows; but seriously when it comes to dangerous life-threatening jobs I don’t think many can beat this one.

It might not seem like much is involved in making sure all those smartphones we are addicted to keep running each day. In most cases when we think of having problems with them the first thing we think about is the electronics in the phone or terrible services from our service provider. The last thing I think that just about any one of us would think about is what it takes to keep those cellphone towers up and running each day.

I mean who exactly maintains them eh. I’m betting that isn’t something we think of very often but it turns that installing and maintaining cellphone towers is one of the most dangerous jobs in the world and often accomplished by people doing what is referred to as free-climbing.

So tell me …. you up for this job?

About the Author

Steven has been around the tech world long enough to see most of the stuff we think of cool happen before which leads to a certain bit of cynicism that has contributed to him being known as the cranky old fart of the Internet. Besides sharing some of the goodness that he finds with you here at 42x you can also find him curating some digital goodness at Winextra (tech type stuff) and Rotten Gumdrops (for your daily dose of WTF).
