What are these crazy kids up to now?  They are going to school!  In China, the youth of Zhangjiawan village in Long Tianping County have  195-foot (60 meter) cliff they have to climb in order to get to school.  There is a safer route but it takes three hours to get to school via the roundabout path so parents have their kids climb these custom-built ladders each day.  The ladders are built by the parents that live in the area and are replaced every few years for, ahem, safety reasons.
