I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

I can't stop watching the video and I first saw it 2 months ago.

 

I'm not afraid of heights but I do sometimes feel off balance in certain situations involving heights. Especially when there's something above me that gives me a perspective of how high I am, and how much higher I could be.

 

I was driving across the bay bridge yesterday with my mother-in-law yesterday...she was freaking out.

Also, apparently this is a thing in Russia now?

 

There's a bunch of videos with Russians climbing insanely tall things. But this one takes the cake.

Yeah, I'm going to hang one handed off a 30 storey building today.

The video of him standing on top of that star was awesome.

There isn't enough...

...in the world for that.

 

I like to joke that I'm not afraid of heights, I'm afraid of downs. If I'm in a high place that's enclosed and stable (observation deck of come kind), I'm great, and love it. Anything open-air, or glass-floored, though? NOPE.

 

One more, just for fun:

Showed the video to my wife and she about got sick. So many things made it look even higher as if thats possible. Above the fog so you cant see the ground. Being that much higher than other really tall buildings. Being higher than that hot air balloon in the background. The weird angles from the go pro.

I remember watching this a while back. I'm no good with heights, but even if I made it up that high, there's no way I'm making it back down, well, except for the quick way.
