the 2 images where the people are hanging by their hands are the craziest. the final one probably had another tower that forked at a point so the
people taking the pic were either on the higher one or one the sender hight but using one of those poles.
I once hung by my hands off the edge of the UW husky stadium roof drunk as a whole pack of skunks, daring god to let me die repeatedly at the top of
my lungs, shouting that if I had a purpose in life then God wouldn't let me die, much to my friends and girlfriends protests. I had to lower myself
down the 4 or 5 rungs of the handrail then climb back up. I'm not even strong enough to climb up it but I guess I had drunk strength or something. I
had to climb back up because my also drunk friends were threatening to "throw me off". I guess I was more afraid of them than I was of god.
I look at these and think a stadium is nothing compared to these people who seem to be a half mile or more in the air.. But I also realize height
doesn't matter much once you get past 40 or 50 feet. 80 feet or 8000 feet, your probably gonna die either way. People get lucky though. Even at
extreme heights. I would've landed on rows of seats with concrete under them. It still shakes me to my core to think back and remember that night. I
don't get drunk anymore. Not because of that night but I just realized it wasn't good for me... Slightly buzzed is much better for me.
