Easily amused...

Wonder if any of these were "staged" for the comedic effect. 

Doubtful, unfortunately - I can imagine they are all real.

I've actually seen something very similar to the "and the winner is" while in the service back in 99. Was in Cairo, and a group of Egyptian contractors were erecting utility poles in the same manner as the picture shows... (only diff was 4 guys were on the 'self-made' ladder)...

Those are good, actually there was just an email circulating around here this week with those very same pictures plus a few more.

I will comment however, that #8 is not as bad as it may seem. In my life before becoming a DBA I ran a lot of heavy equipment, and using the machines hydraulic system to do things similar to this is not that unusual, although the example shown is somewhat pushing the envelope.. I have been in machines in a lot scarier situations, for example when you are building a road on a hillside and you and the terrain for 20 meters around you suddenly find yourself 1/4 mile lower down the hillside, you do what can with what you have at hand to get out of the situation.
