    1768 FT WTF!!!!! I have a major fear of heights :o last April I went abseiling and climbing I was up 50ft and nearly died when I looked down. I was very proud of myself though afterwards. Scary stuff my stomach is now in bits after watching that video.

    For the first half of the video I was thinking "Wow there is no way in hell I would do that, even with safety equipment or some sort of parachute.."
    ..and then he said "....with no safety equipment as it takes too long..."

    wish they included a proper shot of the tower itself but that was amazing stuff.

    Wonder what he had to do, change the light bulb?

    Thats mad, sure even if he slipped with the harness tied to the mast, he has 15 mins max maybe less to get out of it, before he's brown bread

  • Registered Users Posts: 11,178 ✭✭✭✭NothingMan


    IU just kept thinking "CLIP ON YOU IDIOT!!!"

    I climbed this before and I was shítting myself before I for half way up.

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 20,759 ✭✭✭✭dlofnep

    :eek: That video is almost eight minutes long! What kind of attention-span do you think I have? Functional? Reasonable? Average? If it doesn't come in 5-minute easy-to-digest bites then it isn't worth paying attention.

    I'm from the Internet Age.
