Do Heights Bother You?

Grandpa Richard is scared of heights. Acrophobia. I can take plane rides, but it bothers me every time. I cannot believe that I was able to help build the roof of my house. I do remember being able to use a ladder to get on the roof, but not being able to climb down the ladder. I would, instead, jump into a large pile of sand next to the house.

When the movie Cliff Hanger came out I was unable to watch the opening scenes.

Well, watch this video of someone working on the top of a 1,700 foot telecommunications transmission tower. That is over 1/2 of a kilometre up.

I did not watch, but supposedly just after the 5 minute mark, most viewers almost jump out of their own skin!!!
