Stupid, dangerous, awesome fun at work

Ok, so for this next show we're thinking all serious-like about these questions of job and identity, whether you're defined by what you do for a living, blah blah blah (though it's going to be very interesting, trust me :-)

And then I run across this video on YouTube, of some crazy dude riding a giant robot arm, which gives a new meaning to making the most out of your work environment:

The near-death head-swipe at the very beginning is my favorite.

This raises all kinds of interesting questions: Which of these crazy people actually works at the plant in question, and decided that this would be a smart use of company equipment? What kind of astronomical liability are we witnessing here? How much did this guy puke as soon as the camera stopped rolling?
