I hope that new light bulb was a LED!

I can’t believe he is able to use a foot peg as a safety anchor.

Oh... no... not at all.

I don't care HOW much they pay me.

Nope.





Strive to live your life so when you wake up in the morning and your feet hit the floor, the devil says "Oh crap, he's up."

Getting down is what? Jump and paraglide?

PLEASE use long life bulbs.

That’s exactly what I was thinking- do you just hope their isn’t a surprise gust of wind? In terms of being terrifying I bet the downclimb is worse.

I was hunting in a 15ft tree stand and was freaked out by the swaying in the mild breeze.


Does anyone know how much sway there is on a glorified flagpole 2000 ft in the air? I would assume we can measure it in feet?

In 1971 I worked for Control Data Corp. at a facility in Arden Hills, MN. Right across the road a huge TV antenna tower was under construction. The tower had been raised to its maximum height, and a large triangular platform was being constructed atop it. TV antennas for three stations were to be at the apexes.

Sadly, the tower collapsed as that platform was being constructed. All six workers on the tower, and one on the ground, were killed.

No way that I would’ve been among them – I consider myself fortunate to have a reasonable amount of acrophobia.

Hard PASS. As in depleted uranium hard pass.

I once shared a video of a person climbing a radio tower on a perfectly clear day in the midwest that went up to about 2000'. I think no cloud cover made it even harder to watch. I'm not particualry averse to heights but within some kind of reason, and climBing a tower that high and skinny ain't reasonable!

I'm in the "not under any circumstances" crowd. I'm not extremely acrophobic, but that job is beyond the pale.

At 8:30 you can hear him start to breath deeper.

At 9:20 in video, “how am I going to do this?” said as he looks up.
