actually buildings who do not lock their roof access should be held responsible too.

Lets be more objective. Going up and take photos are fine. But doing those dangerous move like rolling around or dangling in mid air ish not. If they're within the limits I'm fine with it.

Also if is not for these guys, we wouldn't have the chance to see our beautiful island from another perspective
the problem is they dont know the limits. first is sit on ledge. later is stand on ledge. then they try all the stupid selfies.

well that's why we have drones now. no need to personally climb so high to take photo and risk your life.

also, they could've taken such photos without standing at the edge in the photographs...

No video of locals walking on the frame of the construction site's Tower Crane, NO COUNT.

To me rooftoppers should walk the horizontal tower cranes as a mark of a real rooftopper!!!

probably the dumbest things ever written and said.

I can understand skydiving or bungie jumping.

But i cannot understand all these "cheap thrills" like "rooftopping" or "planking" or whatever dumbass hobbies young people have nowadays.

It's a total disregard for their own lives, it is also a disregard for their parent's feeling as well as those people around them.
Imagine you're own top of a HDB roof, then you just stand there. what happens if you fell? and then some people were at the ground floor and you hit them when you fell onthem? you can kill them too.

Seriously. this is not a funny joke. but then again, i guess this is darwinism in action.

If i have kids that ever does stupid things like this and i know about it, all i'll say to them is, if they die, i will not give them a funeral. they can sit in the morgue forever for all i care.
there're still risks to bungee jumping and skydiving, plus it's the same as extreme sports. you get adrenaline because you do dangerous stuff. please don't tell me people don't die or get paralysed from doing extreme sports or how they are not "retarded" like rooftopping is.
