Stairway to Heaven...or is it?

At this time last year, I was taking safety courses in anticipation of my misguided attempt to work for a contractor inside a refinery.  Even though I was only going to be working inside a condemned trailer doing data entry, I still had to be safety certified.  The classes and testing lasted longer than my entire refinery working experience. 

Part of the safety orientation involved heights.  It didn't matter that I was never going to be higher than my 5 foot 4 inch height.  I still had to take the class and the test if I was going to be working inside the plant. 

I do not like heights.  That's putting it mildly.  I hate heights.  Worse than my fear of heights is my fear of falling off of heights.

I can promise you with every fiber of my being that I will never, never, never do this...

Lorna, I need to measure. I think I shrunk. I used to be 5' 4" though.

se7en, no sir, I would not do it for a million bucks. I wouldn't do it for a trillion bucks. Seriously. Wouldn't do it.

Just watched this, and almost fell out of my chair. One of Brian's friends does this, posts pix of himself on these towers. I get woozy every time I see one.
