Tough job, oh yeah


Not a problem usually

Being less than medium height, I like to think that having a fear of heights makes sense.

Like flying, why when walking is just a bit slower, or parachuting, why jump out of a perfectly safe flying machine…

However, last week I watched a show on the telly- World’s Toughest Fixes

These tv guys followed some workers that replace antennaes.

ON TOP of towers, 500 meters plus. or this one in particular- 2000feet high…

I got VERTIGO watching it.

Have a gander at the National geographic web site– man, I think the workers and the telly team are awsome and fearless.  And…. missing that little survival gene somewhere- if it aint lookin great… keep far far away..
