Wow, that last one I hadn't seen. I wonder how that picture was taken?


These stunts are interesting, but once someone falls to his death people will

From the Chinese authorities, who did not appreciate the "daring" trick two Russian Embassy in the Russian Federation has been sent an official request to provide real data of these two people. Chinese authorities will take all steps to close them in the future entry. Someone tell these guys that I do not have a Russian passport and a completely different country.

This is what the Shanghai tower owner has told to the "xinmin" reporter on feb 13th

[Xinmin exclusive report] during the Spring Festival this year, rising Russian madman Vadim Makhorov and Vitaliy Raskalov not allowed to enter the Shanghai Tower construction site. Shanghai Center Owner today (February 13) responded that the situation was an accident, will take measures to prevent similar incidents from happening again. Riding the night, two foreign men climb over the wall into the Shanghai Lujiazui area of Shanghai Tower construction site, and then escaped to the top of the building security, and then climb up the roof unarmed giant crane. Recently, a period of about five minutes of video and digital photos attracted users attention. Confirmed, the video two men climbing madman Russian Vadim Makhorov and Vitaliy Raskalov. Vitaliy Raskalov then tells the Shanghai Tower climbing process and the reasons for its personal log, said this video was shot during the Chinese Spring Festival, relatively lax security at that time, workers on leave, the crane does not work. Climbing preparatory work began in two months ago, the reason for the selection of Shanghai center, because it will soon become the world's second tallest building, the height will be more than 650 meters. According Raskalov introduction, the two arrived at the site at midnight on spending about two hours walk 120 layers, in order to better capture the scenery, they waited in the tower 18 hours, while sleeping while waiting until suitable weather occurs. Last March, two climbing friends escaped lunatics on the pyramids of Egypt and the guards, unarmed climbed to as high as 481 feet of the top of the Great Pyramid of Giza Pyramids and captured photos caused an uproar. For two of the madness, many users said watching the video on the "already petrified," there are a lot of friends asks why the site during the entire process without any notice. Shanghai Center Owner afternoon told Xinmin reporter, two Russians secretly entered the construction of Shanghai center, this behavior is very insecure. During the Spring Festival Shanghai Center site security measures during the work stoppage to fire, theft and water security-based, building no mechanical behavior, such a situation is an exception for this incident is very regrettable. Centers Shanghai, said after the event, is working together to study the construction side to take appropriate measures to remove relevant risks and prevent the occurrence of similar acts.

There is a sense of freedom (sometimes perhaps even too much) on regular streets in Chinese cities (Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Shanghai). There is also a sense of general safety which is far less common in Europe unless you're in Switzerland.
Well, UK is a police state.
