I dont even like being on a 2nd floor with my vertigo. I'd just eat a bullet before going anywhere near that building. It took all I could muster to climb up the 50ft tower sitting on PA's highest point - Mt. Davis, which isn't much compared to some mountains.. Not much higher than that building either.

My stomach started turning when he started up the scaffolding just watching the video .... I'll pass on the grand opening tour.

I"m with you all on the heights...

However I tend to torture myself with that and would go up in it. Funny though, the first thing that came to mind when they mentioned the observation deck was sky-diving...

Which while I hate heights and they scare the crap out of me, I enjoy sky-diving...I know...I know...I'm wierd...

Kinda like me and tight places, but yet I love scuba diving...

I'm kinda weird like that too.. I can fly in old WWII airplanes** all day long and do all sorts of aerial acrobatics(as passenger) - but put me on a 6ft ladder and make me look up and I'll fall down. Hell, I've fallen down while standing in an open field and aiming a shotgun up to shoot some doves flying overhead.


** listed below:
1. AT6
2. B-25
3. B-17
4. B-29
5. B-24
6. Grumman Avenger
7. P-61
