  • i just peed a little...
    holy schmageggy.

    now THAT is what you ought to be doing rather than replacing the aglets on your sneaker laces.
  • Yeah, that was intense.

    I had never been afraid of heights but I am finding lately that even being on the roof is a bit daunting - must be age.

    I wonder what the pay is for a job like that?
  • I think fear of heights is directly related to how clumsy you are. I can walk down a level street and trip over myself. Therefore, I am deathly afraid of heights.

    I couldn't watch the whole video.

    I saw the tv special where they changed out the antenna on a unit that high. Real neat. I wonder if anyone would noticed if he took a leak from up there!!!
  • I can do just that now that all my aglets are properly functioning.

    However, there's the matter of mass and gravity, and the English word for 'SPLAAAATTTT' as the two (namely me and Earth) come together.

    Although some computer simulations suggest that I might survive the fall, they all predict that the end is imminent sometime near the end of the last second.

    Therefore, it behooves me to forego any offers of employment in that field at this time.

  • Know what you mean.

    As for pay, it ain't enough whatever it is.

    Spring "Well Paid To Stay On The Ground" Chicken
  • Wuss.... You probably wouldn't last long living in the Heights LOL

    I had some rubber knee moments watching that guy climb but no sooner than I would get used to weak knees I would feel a strong need to evacuate air, often from both ends.

    I was glad when they decided climbing to the top was enough. I don't think I could have survived the un-climb to the bottom.

  • I saw that show too.

    Perhaps if he did take a leak we could better understand the phrase, "Pissing In The Wind"

    No, No and HELL NO
    I work on pools for a reason,, they are built INTO the ground and I haven't heard of any injuries from people falling up :huh: :laugh:
  • Remember the good ol' days when guys would dive from a sky-scraper tower into a five-foot deep pool? They even had a donkey doing it. Wonder why we don't see much of that anymore?

    Maybe it's better to be knee-deep in something than to have your head in the clouds.

    thanks! Besides the guts and stamina it takes just think of the muscle power! I do wonder though why wouldn't it be cheaper and safer to drop a man down on a cable from a helicopter?

  • Probably too dangerous to use a helicopter. Would you do it? Me neither. I'd rather climb from the bottom where I could stop after the second rung LOL.

    Spring "Second Rung Is The Height Of My Tower Career" Chicken

    you're probably right - I just wonder how much the very top of that sways even without much wind. I wasn't thinking so much that the chopper would really have any contact with the top while dangling "Max Macho Man" - but since "sky hooks" went out of use a few years ago with the o-zone scare I assumed that tower was built using helicopters in the first place - which also brings up another point - in the construction process wouldn't those choppers have to have had some sort of grounding protection that high up from potential electrical storms heightened by the turbulence created by the chopper?

  • I was paying attention to the construction details while he was climbing. It constantly reminded me that someone actually built that thing piece by piece.

    This should give you some idea how they build the towers but in this instance seven people died when something went wrong.

    Spring "This Is Why I Don't Build Towers" Chicken
  • Reminds me a little of this

    I'll pass on both of these jobs
  • here you go, copters and static all in one

  • RRPRRP Posts: 19,374
    that was interesting albeit another job I'm glad I didn't seek!

    I've hung off plenty of telephone poles, but that's as high as I want to go, thank you. :sick:
