Seconds from disaster
Even though superstitions are, well, extreme beliefs of supernatural intervention in our daily lives, they’re not something you should discredit entirely. For instance, what good can come out of walking under a ladder? In fact, ladders are deathtraps and should be avoided at all costs.
But this guy wasn’t going to let a little thing like superstition stop him from achieving his goal, whatever that was. Also, it’s incredibly weird that someone would take a picture of him standing on top of a ladder instead of keeping it steady for him. Whether you realize it or not, he’s putting his life at risk, or, at the very least, he’s putting the ceiling tiles at risk of destruction.
