A Stairway To Heaven

A most unsettling video for anyone, especially those prone to motion sickness and fear of heights.

People do this for a living.

I refold jeans at The Gap.

jesus, I lasted about 30 seconds. I can't imagine anything that would get me to do that.

So many questions here.

Who they hell are these guys? How do you know you could DO this and how would you train?

What kind of shape do you have to be in to not get totally exhausted 1/4 of the way up? Holy shit.

How much money do they make? Wow!!!

Last. How does an airplane not fly into something sticking up nearly 2000 feet in the middle of nowhere?

OP, you shit -- after lasting three minutes, I have a terrible headache and feel dizzy.

And it's not the height that did it -- it's that damn fishbowl lens that guy was using.

Hell -- I look out the airplane windows all the time and don't feel like this.

What if they get a panic attack while up there? No one can help them!

R3, if you think about it for a second or two, you might MAYBE be able to figure out why looking out of an airplane window isn't frightening (for most people) but watching this video is VERY scary.

They only walk up the last 100 feet or so. It says they take and elevator the first 1600 feet. Not that it makes it any better.

They should have parachutes. Storms can form almost right above them.

"Free climbing" ...UGH!

C'mon dudes let's discuss this further.

I wonder if a parachute would even help, I thought I read that the jumpers from the WTC on 9/11 had an 11 second flight before impact below.

My hands got so clammy, a Red Lobster chef chopped 'em off.

I was rocking back and forth in my chair watching this like a man gone mad, ass clenched, occasionally shouting, "No, God, No!"

OMFG!!! Why would anyone do this??? I would so totally freeze in place and have to be rescued by helicopter!!!

Jesus, that gave me vertigo, even though I'm sitting at my kitchen table!

That was a challenge on The Amazing Race, so it's not that big of a deal.

R20 here. I see that they are television towers. Why??? Can't we stop using antenna's already and all go to cable???

My vagina screamed the whole length of this movie!

I used to get nervous just looking at Sutro Tower from my back window and it was miles away on a hill. That thing is huge.

by Anonymousreply 2310/07/2013

Shit, the Sutro Tower is only 834 feet high, this is twice that.

r20, I am so using your line (and giving you "anonymous" credit) wherever I'm reposting that video.

BTW I lasted exactly 3:22 before I felt I was gonna lose my lunch and I haven't had breakfast yet.

by Anonymousreply 2510/07/2013

I got "jelly legs" within a minute, and had to click off. Whatever they pay those guys, it isn't enough. I gotta' go take a nap and get that image out of my brain. You COULD'VE warned us, OP.

by Anonymousreply 2610/07/2013

I got anxiety and tightness in my chest for an hour after watching this.

by Anonymousreply 2710/07/2013

I have a horrible fear of heights - I get shaky standing on a chair to change a light bulb. I've always gotten these weird, almost electrical shooting pains in my calves whenever I see something involving heights. This video set the pains shooting like lightning bolts.
