That deck does not look very well built at all.

I'm wondering about the dude on the roof with the camera. I think this was probably a staged stunt for some purpose. (hopefully to prevent people from doing similar stupid crap for real)

The deck looks fine, the problem is that they used just a couple 2x4s for columns.

Also the support at the house was sketchy.
Why put a deck like that in front of a window anyway? The owner was going to crawl out the window to his hot tub? So another hint it was staged for some reason.

Also, they are filling the hot tub with a fire hose. I doubt very many home owners can get the FD to come by and fill up their hot tubs... so I think it's staged as well.
I'm sorry Dave...

I would guess that too.

I remember a couple summers ago there was a deck collapse somewhere in Queens--people put one of those pools on the deck--
The thing that bothered me was the news was bringing up the landlord's having past violations --even a very good landlord can have them--but never once mentioned that it would be idiotic to have that much weight on a deck.
And Proteus brought the upright beast into the garden and chained him to a tree and the children did make sport of him.

So, how much do you think a set of those would go for on eBay. $30? $40? Can't cost much more than $10 to make... :shifty:

Time required is far more than $10. Raw materials certainly were a few bucks at most.
He needs to do something to attach the cord to the brass, perhaps a bit of epoxy. Otherwise a few inadvertent tugs on the cords will pull apart those solder joints and ruin the headphones. Also I'd use a brass tumbler rather than sandpaper to shine it up.
