    One does not greet death when he knocks at your door.

    Nay you repeatedly punch him in the throat as he slowly drags you away.

    Hey, make a movie of it like the muppet did. If you're really willing to put your full confidence that there will be no structural failure on what appears to be very degraded infrastructure when it comes to your turn, then we would love to see it posted on CU.

    Most solid state digital media will easily survive a 500 ft drop, so no problem there.

    Yeah, me too. It was a good location.

    I have to confess to a fear of heights, which I have worked on to deal with (7 high-drop bungee jumps and some rock climbing, among other "treatments"), but I really would not do anything like that without using the proper safety equipment. It looked way too unsafe to me.

    Actually I get more freaked out by heights when I see other people dicking around near long drops without any thought for their own safety than I do for myself.

    I wasn't afraid of heights until watching that.

    I'd do that rather than the first one. The bridge was rickety but there seemed to be enough wires to at least give it some stability and advance warning of trouble.

    The first one (Zaf's), there were a couple of points looking at it where it caused a rather unpleasant sensation in a particular part of my anatomy... a bizarre but very real reaction I get with heights. :o:D

    are you refering to the "pucker" ?

    did you have a turtle head poking out?
    One does not greet death when he knocks at your door.

    Nay you repeatedly punch him in the throat as he slowly drags you away.
