    RETIRED MOD

    Here's the video Link I just watched it so it should work for awhile.
    I was glued to my sit and couldn't move when the guys reached the top and you could see how easy it could be for them to fall. I think trying to go down would be "harder" as you'd have to look down all the time *shudder*.
    Trust is a fragile thing. Once trust is lost, it can be impossible to recover. Those we're closest to can betray us,and total strangers can come to our rescue. In the end, most people decide to trust only themselves. It really is the simplest way to keep from getting burned.

    I'm not scared of heights, but I am certainly scared of falling off of them. I'm not sure if I'd be able to do that. Physically, sure. 200 feet of climbing a latter is not that big of a deal. It's the atmosphere that'd freak me out.

    My palms are sweaty.

    knees weak, arms are heavy
    There's vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti
    He's nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready to drop bombs,
    but he keeps on forgettin what he wrote down,
    the whole crowd goes so loud
    He opens his mouth, but the words won't come out
    He's choking now, everybody's joking now
    The clock's run out, time's up over, bloah!

    My torrential pain will be your unspeakable suffering
    Your days are numbered
    Don't fear the end
    Pray for it
    and unlike your own mortality

    How much do they pay him ?

    I'm guessing not as much as he should be getting paid.

    I'm not generally scared of height, but holy **** I'd be clinging on for my life. Nothing but respect for those guys.
    It's good to be the King!

    Throughout the entire video I was having phantom falls (a sensation of falling). That is the scariest thing I have EVER seen. Those guys are the bravest people I've ever seen aside from combat troops.

    If you make me climb over there, you better promise to make me king of Earth on my way down. Seriously, my last job made me go in heights a lot but this is simply insane.
