I saw the pix of this the other day, it's spooky looking to me, (I'm deathly afraid of heights.) But I could see why people would want to do it.

That looks pretty sweet. ;-D

I'm afraid of heights too, whether it be standing on an observational deck of a cathedral's dome/spire or skyscraper, but the fear wouldn't deter me from getting up there.

Awesome :-B

In Auckland they have the Sky Tower which you can go up and walk on some glass floor, which is kewl (my g/f wouldn't do it :-b ).

In Melbourne they have this thing called Eureka Skydeck which is a little glass room jutting out of the 88th floor of a building. It moves inwards and outwards, but it has cheesy sound effects which make it suck :-t .
