WOW!!! I just received this information via email and decided to share. Please forgive me in advance for the large images (need to show perspective) and the overall quality of the image.

Look at the edge (uppermost right corner) of the picture...The persons who are working on the upper most girders can see the CURVE OF THE EARTH.




Babu Sassi, a fearless young man from southern India ,

is the cult hero of Dubai 's army of construction workers.

Known as the "Indian on top of the world",

Babu is the crane operator at the world's tallest building, the 819-meter Burj Dubai.

His office, the cramped crane cab perched on top of the Burj, is also his home.

It takes too long to come down to the ground each day to make it worthwhile -

although, when the building is completed, its elevators will be the world's fastest.

Stories about his daily brush with death are discussed in revered terms by Dubai 's workers.

Some say he has been up there for more than a year,

others whisper that he's paid 30,000 dirhams ($8,168) a month

compared with the average wage of 800 dirhams a month.

But everyone agrees, he's worth it -

because nobody else would have the courage to do the job!




I don't care what you paid me, I couldn't work covered in excrement all day...and this would literally scare it out of me.

Wow.

I'm scared of heights and if I even wen't up halfway up that tower I'd have a panic attack, nevermind being in a tiny crane thats attached to the side of the building.

Goosebumps.

no way he's been up there for a year.
how does he bathe and go to the bathroom?
I would do it for that kind of pay but I would need personal hygiene....

This guide tower climber gives you a bit of a perspective what it must be like. This is totally nuts.

He just poops like a bird. Better watch out if you're walking near that building!
