Tom Ryaboi war anscheinend schon immer jemand der Höhen liebt, wie er auf seiner Website erzählt:
My father often likes to tell a story about me when I was 2 years old, although I was too young to remember the incident I believe it to be true. He says he returned home from work one day to find my mother doing some house work but I was nowhere to be found. He looked in my room, he looked in the living room, even in the kitchen. His worries were silenced when finally I called out to him from the top of the fridge. He says he is still trying to figure out how I got there.
