He should have peed off the side of it.  So it could be the Wizz Khalifa.

Pichu0102: AdolfOliverPanties: I would fall off.  I would not be able to control my nerves, would lose my balance, have vertigo, puke, piss and tumble to my death.

Unless I landed in that big pool.  Then I'd be all right.

The tower climbers video makes my balls hurt.  And not in a good way.

I'm pretty sure the impact with the water would still kill you at that height.

Nope. I'm pretty sure that terminal velocity is low enough to survive. You just have to fall spread eagle.

Rooftoppers, you might be wondering, are photographers who take photos of themselves from the tops of buildings and other structures.

I think I know how this trend ends.

scottydoesntknow: Fark that mess.

And in case anyone's never seen it: Tower climbers working 1,700+ feet up

Bonus point if you can make it through the whole thing without your hands starting to sweat

That video gave me full body sweats and possibly my first panic attack.

Heh.  So many acrophobic comments confirm that Farkers prefer to live their parents' basements.

AdolfOliverPanties: jaylectricity: He probably has something to hold on to.

I would hope so, but it wouldn't make a difference to me.  I could be cabled in five different ways and I would still lose my shiat.

That's why I have to give mad respect to Tom Cruise for filming a lot of his own scenes in MI:4 on the outside of that building.  Yeah, he was cabled in, and yeah, he probably figured Xenu would save him or some shiat, but he was out there, running along that outside of that farking tower. Farking hell.

I think he got there via helicopter but I still wouldn't do it.

That's "We're making our final approach to the airport.  The captain has turned on the 'fasten seat belt' sign.  Please bring your seats upright and close your tables" height.

they say the fear of heights is not the fear of falling, it's the fear that you might jump.
