Climbing a pylon wearing flares

An old discarded warning sign from an electricity pylon in Wellington, New Zealand, presumably from around 1970-75. Person climbing pylon is wearing flares. 

The extravagance/grandiosity of flares indicate high/inflated self-esteem. Climbing a power pylon a good example of poor self-control that results from big-headedness, according to self-regulation science discussed in this blog in post "Self-control Techniques for Self-sufficient Gardening".  

A dangerous addiction to some form of great power is a normal symptom of loss of self-control, this image serves as a very graphic example of the sort of tragedy that can result.
