Someone has climbed a radio tower in Tulsa and has been up there since Thursday with no food or water. Rescuers can't talk him down. They say he's not suicidal but has to be suffering from sever dehydration by now. I think they gave him water once. Link to live video camera here:

A live stream gives him an audience and encourages others to do the same....

I agree. If all of the Rescue personnel, news anchors, and public would go away he'd probably get bored and come down...

He's probably just obsessed with "What's Eating Gilbert Grape."

I'm imagining a tranq gun and a big net. Always works in the cartoons.

Make that sometimes works in the cartoons.

You could probably charge admission for watching that (and charge even more for pulling the trigger). Some charity should step forward.

I started watching and 1:52 in to my viewing, the guy walked to within a couple of feet of a "rescuer" in a sherry picker style basket. And then he walked further away... Closing the window.

He was probably checking the forums on his cell phone and knew that it was only a matter of time until the tranq gun came out.

At least he'd have good reception up there.
