I am not afraid of heights, and have done some crazy things in my life but this is just beyond me.

I literally felt my nerves tingle when I saw the guy doing pull-ups. I do not like heights. At all.

That is insane. I would never ever do that. Not even for 100 billion dollars. If I were out there, I would have a heart attack, and there would be a big mess in my pants. I can't believe they did pull-ups and were just hanging like that. Imagine. One slip and its over.

Its not the heights i mind, but the pullups..
welcome back sir
Thank you Sir.
It is nice to be back, even though it is only for tonight.
I return to New Hampshire to play tomorrow.

It has been interesting to watch your transformation from a Jolly Joker (that IS a Hogan's Heroes reference) to a true gentleman.

(Even OJ has good things to say about you. My God! I was only gone for a month and look what happens).

Good Day iCafe

That guy was struggling with those pullups, too. I wouldn't do that without a few more trips to the gym first.

Actually it is the same .. you can be untied 200 feet or a million feet
you fall your still dying the same way lol
actually you die faster at 200 feet

You DO have a point...

When I first started my job I was 19, didn't have a care in the world and thought I was a bad-ass, thought it was impressive to not be tied off. Now I have a wife and child, things are looked at in a WHOLE different perspective, really changed my life and how I look at a lot of things.

Then there were the times we would climb the cell phone towers drunk and stoned...but that's getting a bit off topic.:p

Isn't cell phone tower maintenance the most dangerous job in America?
I thought I saw something about that on the news.

Would you believe that I have that picture framed in my living room in Florida?

Great minds think alike.

That is what I try to tell people about heights.
(I used to climb just about everything when I was younger, before I was a drummer).

Gravity doesn't change no matter how high you are.
You are no more likely to fall from a 1000 feet than from 10 feet.

Old joke time:
It ain't the fall that kills you. It's the sudden stop at the end.

Jen's father bought a huge poster of that to cover a wall in their basement bathroom. I know it in intimate detail due to all the dumps I've taken down there.

No, actually, I was being completely serious. I have ulcerative colitis.
