    I thought this thread was going to be about Lady GaGa's gynecologist

    Re: This makes me LOVE my job

    This video is great. I watched it yesterday after someone posted it on Facebook. I have no problems with heights at all, but watching that thing on full-screen sitting at my desk was making me just a little weak in the knees to say the least! That is just absolutely crazy. Whatever they pay those guys, it isn't enough.

    Are we sure she needs a gyno?

    I'm glad I'm not the only one. I wasn't sure if it was possible to get vertigo from watching a video.

    That's easy, you just tell her to turn her head and cough and it's all over.

    I absolutely would do it if they paid me enough. The more you work up high the easier it gets. Plus they are all strapped in and everything.

    That said, I have climbed to the top of some grain legs and stuff and that's actually pretty difficult once you get high enough and I'm not all that scared of heights.

    Free climbing at 1700 feet, no thanks. Wonder what the pay is for a job like that?

    Due to my balls being 98% steel, I could totally do it.

    Re: This makes me LOVE my job

    I'm not sure what good those giant hooks for the safety harnesses are going to do on those tiny rungs. If you fall, it will probably go right off the end of the rung.

    That video just went from one unbelievable thing to another even more unbelievable. I was so uncomfortable I was squirming in my chair.

    If I did make it to the top I'd probably find that I brought up a defective replacement lamp so I'd have to go down to get another one.

    That's crazy that OSHA lets them free climb that.


    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that. ~ George Carlin

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    Re: This makes me LOVE my job

    The guy in the video said if a storm blows in, there is no fast way down. I can think of one. Can't believe they go that high without being hooked in. Makes sense to what he said though, would take forever to hook, go a few feet, unhook, then hook again.
