I remember watching this.
Wasn't a problem when I was younger, but nowadays, height really scares me.

I was in Blackpool this time last year and at the top of Blackpool tower, there is a perspex section of the floor, that you can stand on, with a 300foot drop below it.
It defies all logic, but I crapped out of standing on it, when my little girl had no problem.
This is me that's done a parachute jump n'all!

I used to love heights, would jump tree to tree 100ft high. Crazy.
I've climbed a big chimney too, the ladder was inside it tho, wouldn't have done it otherwise, only cos I doidn't want to get caught. That's about 15 storeys high, doesn't sound much but when all there is seperating you from a long drop is a rusty wire fence, it's change of trousers time. That was frightening even at 14.

I would stand on this glass. Fast forward to 1:50 for an awesome clip.
Dunno if it's the same sort.
