The kid is a natural. Amazing what they pick up as kids just "hangin'"
When I was grown and started doing woodworking, construction at my home, my father (whom I'd watch as a lad of 5 years build new kitchen cabinets for our new home and then a fancy brick room divider and planter) would marvel at my "accomplishments" and ask where I learned that stuff. I told him "from you, by osmosis." When he replied that "Hell, I never did anything that good (he lied!)!" I told him, "No, you just don't know how good a teacher you were. Okay, so maybe I improved and improvised as I went along, but without the fundamentals I'd had from you, the bookcase would have been assembled with nails"<g>

It's surprising what kids pick up, the smart ones.
When my kids were really young I was still pulling up A/C compressors to the roofs of commercial bulldog's by hand. Straight roping it up, no pulleys, the smaller ones less than 10 tons. Never gave it a thought when I was discussing the various jobs with HVAC friends.
Not until I found my kids were bragging on me at their grammar schools about how strong their daddy was. :)
I hated having to tell them that in HVAC language that one ton equaled 12,000 BTU capacity and the ones I handled were actually less than 250 pounds each. Nowadays they are considerably lighter with all the alloys in use plus the increased efficiencies, anyhow the kids looked a bit disappointed, but I don't think they said anything to their friends in school afterwards.

Buddy, if you can lift 250lbs straight up onto a commercial building height roof with nothing but a rope and your muscles, you have nothing to hold yo ur hat in your hand about. On my best day I could never have leaned over t he side of a roof and off balance, dead lift 250lbs by hand using only a ro pe. Knowing that you would also have to hold the rope about 3 - 4 feet off the side of the building to keep from scraping the building or unit makes i t even more impressive. It would be a sight to see, no doubt!

This was years ago, and while I didn't like it I did it because I had to. What you said is true about keeping it away from the bldg and all, and at the end just hanging on taking a breath before the final heave up to the edge of a parapet. (SP) then down to the roof. Usually they were a bit lighter. I only needed to keep it a half foot or so off the wall. When you're young you just don't think about it wisely.
I really never gave it much thought, but if you look at my spine now with an X-Ray you will see very little padding between much of the spine.

That's quite the display of memory ! Wow. I just finished reading a book about Aspergers - Be Different by John Robison http://www.johnrobison.com/purchase-books.php .. in which Robison describes his own personal experience - including a common trait - the ability to super-focus on certain things. As for little Hunter in the video - I wonder how he gets along playing with other 4 year olds .. in the playground or sandbox. John T.

A nephew of mine was dissassembling the interior of a car at that age. My brother ran a body shop - and his wife helped out. The little guy's "playpen" was a wreck just outside the shop. He removed the radio, the heater controls, the instrument panel, all the switches, all the trim - all before going to jr kindergarten.
He's a bit of o Geek / Nerdnow in his 30's - working for a large computer software/ virtual machine company both here and in the UE.
