OMG! I just wathced that. My palms are sweating too!!! )

I guess you either are or aren't afreaid of heights. After watching that, I'm afraid o heights!!

Wait! Did he just say getting on top is the tricky part?? I would think getting out of bed knowing you have to go up there would be the trickest part!

Fantastic!

That looks like it would be fun. I'd want to be in better shape than i currently am (like were i was 25 years ago), and i'd use the safety line if i was to go up the part at the top. And forgry about the spindly biy at the extreme top.

You have to have good knees and good workboots cause you're standing all the time. That's a really tall one since it has the strobe on top. Shorter ones (under 1000ft) just have a red light. And it must be old since the newer tall ones have an elevator.

I don't mind heights. It's only the last inch of the fall that hurts, anyway. Even so, that's high up.

A Quote of Douglas Adams is in order... "The mere shock of vertigo could kill a man."
