I used to watch Extreme Homes on HGTV all the time. There were some pretty amazing ones. No pics though.

I always love seeing engineering feats that seem to accomplish the impossible.

The Falkirk Wheel in Scotland would have to be up there with the best of them.


I found a picture of it….

That is pretty cool.



This is an amazing work of engineering but also of design it has a beauty to it as well as it's incredible (yet oddly simplicity) function!

I got to check this out a couple of years ago. Pretty cool to be up that high standing on glass. In case anyone is wondering it is the Willis Tower in Chicago. Previously known as the Sears Tower

Something tells me there is no need for a "no diving" sign on a glass pool 30 stories above the ground.

I wouldn't say 'defy gravity', the beams, bars, wood...(most likely not wood), would just be extremely strong and extremely long so whatever's built on 'em wouldn't just break off.. or not so easily, I'm not a construction worker but I been around legos long enough

I am scared of heights!



I'm not afraid of heights or rockets or rides at amusement parks.

But I'm DEATHLY afraid of human arrogance in thinking we can build 'Completely safe' stuff!

No, I would NOT walk on a glass floor, swim in a terrace pool, or fly in a space shuttle. BRRRRR!
