Genius at Work

In the dvor behind my building there is an apartment building that is currently undergoing remont and getting some floors added to the roof of it. I've been watching them work on it and seem some pretty funny stuff.

Take this picture for instance. This small crane is sitting on the roof of this apartment building that's probably 8 or 9 stories high.

The other day the contruction workers were having some diffiuclties with the pulley at the end of the crane. Rather than lowering the boom on the damn thing and fixing it at their level, they made some poor sap shimmy up the crane and fix the damn thing while it was still elevated.
