What am I missing?

The only thing I see that stands out as dumb is the metal tools stowed atop the battery.

The terminal and clamp aren't in the best shape, but don't be appear to be "no way, no how" worthy.

Matter of opinion, but in mine, an image showing TWO steel tools (one of which has three arms) on top of a battery with exposed terminals should no way, no how be on an instructional website presumably aimed at complete novices.

(Title doesn't make sense in English either.)

It looks like he's removing the dead battery at this point, so it could be OK as long as it's really dead.

I'm guessing you mean that someone MIGHT lose a finger if the tools touched both the positive and negative terminals, causing an arc and possible battery explosion? Clever. Also, nice job with the selective quote.

Not a risk I'd be willing to take.

What is supposed to happen? The tri-spoke tool is no where near the positive post and while his work area is messy, it hardly warrants "no way, no how".

The positive terminal might have one of those red plastic insulators on it. But then again it might not and an instructional on how to do something this basic should assume abject stupidity.

I've got a pretty big bang when I was careless around a battery in a scrapyard car that looked like it'd been there for a while, so I wouldn't bet on that.

My current car battery is overdue for replacement. Most people would have replaced it quite a while ago, but it'll still start the car and I'd bet it'd arc quite impressively.

Dunno, Could be worse. It could be about oil choice (again) or even what temperature your thermostat is at.

I'm finding it quite interesting. Seems about half the posters see no problem.
