Like I said, not a comfortable sensation, at all. I think it's a normal fear reaction.
The normal fear reaction draws blood away from the extremities to the body core, so it sort of makes sense.
If I fell from the bridge, or whatever, depending on the amount of time I had available before death, I'm sure a turtle head or worse would occur. That's terror, not fear. Again, a normal reaction.
Holy shit...They found the path thru Mordor.... :eek:
Anybody else notice that all those metal beams he was walking on were old railroad tracks?
In Las Vegas they were sending "guest workers" to crawl up a crane boom to oil it, while it was operating...this was during the City center project...something like 8 fatalities in less then a year...OSHA finally set up an office on site it was so bad...I'm used to lock out/tag out, confined space permits & tie offs...these guys were like monkeys falling from trees. If they did live, they would sneak out of the hospital at night to avoid being deported, sticking the taxpayers with the hospital bill...
Then as most here know, my father was killed just falling off the second or third step of a ladder..waxing his RV...something went wrong with the ladder...he landed wrong, and his life was over...it took a long time for the nightmares to go away.

I don't have a fear of heights, just a fear of falling- Rob Johnson
