Sears Tower officials have said the inspiration for the balconies came from the hundreds of forehead prints visitors left behind on Skydeck windows every week. Now, staff will have a new glass surface to clean: floors.
Had to laugh at this part.
Yeah, staffers will be cleaning...but it won't be any kind of prints...it'll be the other kind of clean-up!
Oh, heck no! There's a transparent bridge that goes out over the Grand Canyon, too, from what I hear. As much as I would LOVE to visit the Grand Canyon even once, that bridge and I are not getting together. No way, no how. Same goes for this tower thing. Just looking at it makes me queasy. My DH, on the other hand, would love it. He has no fear of heights at all. He scared the c r a p out of me when we went to Germany. He was leaning over this spindly little rail into an abyss, taking pics like it was no big deal. It freaks me out just thinking about it!
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOO WAY! Im soo scared of Hieghts! When I travel somewhere for the first time I have to have someone else with me, cause if I have to go over a tall bridge I will not drive over it. I will turn around and come back home.
