The final insult

So a student at Queen’s was killed last week when he fell from the side of a campus building. The National Post headline, complete with subtle editorializing:
3-storey fall kills ‘skilled’ mountaineer

  1. He was buildering (climbing on a building) way too high. First of all, buildering is illegal most places. Second, wtf was he doing so high? Third, he didn’t have a spotter.
    The headline should have read “3-storey fall kills ‘shit-for-brains’ poseur,” but I guess some respect for the dead should be given.
    It’s dicks like him who cause problems for other climbers.
