    I can't believe that. I don't see how a building of that size can be safely built that fast.

    Re: View from tallest manmade building

    Wheres the barfing smiley?

    Thats almost as bad as the video of the guy free climbing the communication tower (even taller I'm sure). I'm not exactly afraid of heights but I'm also not nearly manly enough to do either of those.


    Nothing to see here mods. Keep moving.

    There is no way you would get me up on top of this thing. I was getting freaked out just from the video!


    Have you seen the clear box that is affixed to the side of the top of the Sears (Willis) Tower in Chicago? You step out and look straight down. They must have a perpetual mopping system to clearn up all the urine.

    Re: View from tallest manmade building

    Hope no one barfed at the top. It was pretty windy and things fly. Now if someone needed a reststo break, that would be the wrong place.
