I'd prolly have a big penis above my neck as like most men my 'brains' or 'thinking' are often controlled by it.

The brain is an amazing organ. It works 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, from birth until you fall in love.

Actually, my face would be a jar of formaldehyde with a brain in it.

Any real climber knows you never load a 'biner over an edge like that. Gotta extend your pro' with a sling or compromise the 'biner and have it break far below spec.

Below a spec of what?

Below the official specified breaking point (usually 18-26 kilonewtons). A carabiner is designed to be loaded in a specific manner so that it carries the weight along the spine (the straight side without the gate). To do so it must hang freely in the direction of pull. If you fell on the carabiner in the picture, it would flex it sideways over the edge, likely causing the gate to fail and the metal to fatigue as it bends in half, and drastically reducing the amount of force required for the 'biner to fail entirely. Edge loaded 'biners like the one in the picture can fail at around 20% of the force they could handle if positioned properly. It's like the difference between being able to lift a truck with it and having it break when you fall and need it to catch you.
