Thursday afternoon, the city of London was enraptured by the antics of the daredevil rock climber known as the French Spider-Man. Alain Robert, a 56-year-old man known for ascending skyscrapers without the aid of safety equipment, illegally climbed to the top of the Salesforce Tower.

The climb took the better part of an hour, as onlookers below watched in anticipation. This isn't his first skyscraper ascent. Robert is known for his urban climbs. He began in the '90s climbing up buildings such as the Petronas Twin Towers in Malaysia and the Sears Tower in Chicago.

He often climbs without permission or permits, with no equipment outside of rock climbing shoes and chalk, and to a supportive and captivated crowd.


Not everyone is happy with his climb, however.

Upon reaching the top, Robert was arrested on suspicion of being a public nuisance. His manager, Bryan Yeubrey, was not surprised, stating, "Now he will be arrested and go to court. Hopefully they will not be too hard on him because actually he is a really good guy."

History is made on a daily basis.

Indeed, there is little more exciting than having witnessed the accomplishments of people like Barack Obama, Stacey Abrams, and Greta Thunberg knowing that they have firmly reserved a space for themselves in history books.

Of course, most of the people who paved the way to make the world what it is today have long since passed away.

Not all of them, though!

It may surprise you to learn that there are people who made an indelible impression on history who are still much alive today.

Some of whom even continue to make a difference to this very day

We all indulge in fast food from time to time.

Even if we know what we're eating isn't exactly healthy, sometimes the salty, fatty mass-produced food is the only thing we want.

Resulting in our making weekly, if not daily, visits to a nearby chain.

Then, of course, there are the chains that we make every effort to avoid.

We've likely tried places at least once simply because everyone is always talking about them.

But after having one bite, we have trouble seeing exactly what all the fuss was about and vow to never return.

Even if it might be the only option at a rest stop or even the only available food for miles, we instead opt to wait and be hungry.

There are several movies I've watched so many times I think the viewings outnumber the days I've lived.

And much like a favorite tv series or movie, who wouldn't love to start again anew?

Experiencing that first time but with that feeling of... "I'm gonna love this forever."

We never appreciate the first time enough.

But that's life.

Warning: there are spoilers below.

There is no one way to anybody's heart or libido.

Sexy doesn't always have to equal raunchy.

I've known people turned on by music, books, nature, and even funerals (don't ask).

What starts someone's engine is a mystery.
