"Guests who are concerned about any unwanted exposure as a result of the mirrored floors and ceilings are responsible for dressing in a manner to avoid such exposure."

I'm confused. Is this supposed to mean that anyone who steps onto this floor who isn't dressed "in a manner to avoid such exposure" is consenting to being upskirted? My understanding is that deliberate upskirting was considered a crime in many locations, if not all.

And, just spitballing here, but what happens if some family comes with a young girl in a skirt who's "improperly dressed" as a result of this floor and someone snaps a picture. Has that person now potentially committed an additional crime because the girl is a minor? And would the parents be at all liable for allowing the girl onto the floor "improperly dressed" in the first place?

If they don't think these sorts of issues are going to come up from this, they're crazy.

Sometimes you have to reward "the boys".

As the old joke goes: what's worn under the kilt? Nothing, it's all in perfect working order.

Raleigh State Fairgrounds, circa 1998...Flea Market.

A woman in a dress was standing at a flea market table. A man walked up behind her with a shopping bag. He puts the bag down, and slips it under the woman. I didn't think anything about it. But thought it was odd. The woman steps back and trips over the bag, the bag falls over and out comes a video camera. He scrambled to get out of there really quick.

That night, on the local news, the cops found him and arrested him. It was the first time, I had ever heard the phrase "up-skirt"

Forget it, Jake, it's New York.

You'll get a fixed number of tourists with any floor type. To attract jaded New Yorkers you need to appeal to their interests, voyeurism of exhibitionism.

ElPrimitivo: There's a hotel with a really cool museum in Louisville called 21c.

"The bathrooms are quite nice, the urinal for the guys room is a 2-way mirror wherein you can see the people outside of the bathroom walk by but they cannot see you (quite freaky at first) and also serves as a cascading waterfall that flows to the floor."

I think the lower frosted glass is new. I know that my then girlfriend told me that she was absolutely able to see me pee when she pressed up close to the glass from outside (after I verified there was nobody else in there)


So you peed on her face when she did that, right?

Well... After I stopped staring at that particularly nice pair of breasts... The answer is 'unwanted hair growth, clitoral enlargement, increased sex drive, and increased aggression'.

I'm all for giving any woman who wants a modest testosterone boost a pill and a razor.

1985...black mini skirts were the rage back then. I had always found them to be sexy. One day, while shopping with my GF, we saw a pair and she wanted them. So I bought them for her. No big deal.

Oddly enough, a week or so goes by and I had forgotten about them. I go to pick her up one day for a date and she comes out of the house, gives me a kiss hello and raises her skirt...."look, no panties"

Now, mind you it was the first time ever experiencing anything like this before. Didn't know what to do.

I think I said  "that's nice, but isn't it drafty without panties?"

she then told me I was wearing too many clothes.

lol...good times with her, she was a nice girl.

I've been to the glass floor of the CN Tower in Toronto (don't bother anymore, it's so jammed with tourists it's a 5 minute experience that takes several hours of shuffling slowly in a long line... At least pre-COVID.)

Glass cracks.  It's a long way down.  Damn right I didn't step on it even though the odds are almost zero anything would happen.  People used to think I was odd walking around subway sidewalk vents, but then one day a half dozen Torontonians made the news for falling through one.

Same with the Empire State Building in NYC. Takes forever and a day to get up to the 86th observatory deck in sardine like elevators...and then you get there and you have to fight your way to look over the edge...

anyway, last time I was there, 2001, I saw Carrot-top and a crowd was forming all around him so I went the other way to avoid that mess.

Apparently the ESB has a separate, higher floor that is only available to celebrities/VIPs so they can avoid the plebs. Surprised they don't have a separate entrance, too.


I once knew some rich-and-powerful people... And got a few of those special VIP only tours.

It's a totally different experience, and it really makes you feel superior to the commoners when they're playing at being sardines while you're very comfortable.

WOW!  What a "staged" stock video of not-so-real people in a not-so-real situation.  Not one backpack or saggy pants seen ANYWHERE in the video!

/Did anyone else notice that the one woman that WAS wearing a short black dress, was standing on a sheet of glass, not a mirror?  Coincidence?  Nope...STAGED!

More like a bunch of dudes in kilts getting called out for wearing the wrong size.

Well a Scotsman clad in kilt left the bar on evenin' fair...and y'could tell b'how he walked that he'd drunk more than his share...

The Chinese have a glass walkway that's 3800 feet up. If you weren't already nervous about trusting Chinese construction, they decided to up the ante by putting in fake panels that make it look like the glass is breaking:

Was it the 102nd floor?  It's been a while since I've been there.

I bet Carrot-top wasn't VIP enough to get up to the 102nd floor.

I think so? I'm not sure, I just saw it on a youtube video about hidden areas of famous buildings.  The whole video was kind of a letdown, tbh.


The 80th, 86th, and 102nd floors contain observatories.[304][282][250] The latter two observatories saw a combined average of four million visitors per year in 2010.[105][305][306] Since opening, the observatories have been more popular than similar observatories at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, the Chrysler Building, the first One World Trade Center, or the Woolworth Building, despite being more expensive.[305] There are variable charges to enter the observatories; one ticket allows visitors to go as high as the 86th floor, and there is an additional charge to visit the 102nd floor. Other ticket options for visitors include scheduled access to view the sunrise from the observatory, a "premium" guided tour with VIP access, and the "AM/PM" package which allows for two visits in the same day.[307]

Given the source picture in this thread I would also have accepted the picture of the badly shooped pick of Emma Watson's head on a nude model with the Rock's head in front of it, too.
