Acrophobiacs beware

Post by Ashclaw » 21 Sep 2010, 15:12

Sooo, I do not generally have no fear of heights, well maybe a little apprehension but not enough to have stopped me from skydiving, bungee, abseiling, rock climbing, whatever. Perhaps I do have a phobia of insubstantial ladders tho, because this video freaked me the fuck out.

I got to 1min 19 and had to stop.

I absolutely freak out at anything above 2 levels.

In a plane I'm fine but particularly 3-10 levels I can't do it.

It got worse and worse after that, Lel. Wow.

My legs felt funny just sitting at my desk watching that.

Fuck that. On so many levels. I was thinking I could see how it could, maybe, be cool (if you didn't have acrophobia, which I do), up until they hit the base of the actual antenna. Then it just got silly. Surely there's a more effective way to build/maintain that sort of thing, that isn't borderline suicidal.
