Why is it that one man is allowed to walk through fire and another is not allowed to climb a tree? Are there some people that have special authority to do whatever they like whilst others are restricted? Or do they sign indemnity forms meaning they can do anything they want as long as they accept it is their fault if it goes wrong? Or perhaps they have found the loopholes in our health & safety laws?
I watched a brilliant science documentary on the TV a while ago. The reporter wanted to show what it was like in the middle of a fire. So he put on a firesuit – it looked like a 1960’s moon suit – and walked, with his camera, through a tunnel of fire.
