Tapatalk doesn't show your pic within the thread unfortunately but it looks pretty scary to me, so tell us where and how, and most importantly WHY?

Absolutely no way on gods green earth would I ever be up there! 

M legs were going to jelly just watching that 'do you feel the tower moving' well, get the f**k down then!

Just watched this and spent the time clinging on to the sofa. Every time the camera moved to show the shot over the side I thought I was going to fall over the edge.

 

As I've got older I get more uncomfortable with heights. Each time I go to the top of the Forth Bridge for work it gets worse.

Whats daft is if you marked a circle the same size as the top of the chimney on the ground with the same wind i would run around it with impunity.

 

Logic says your balance would be the same a squillion metres up and yet my brain would be screaming N0000000!

 

What i did note is they are doing something with their fingures - some sort of cognitive behaviour technique perhaps?

^^^^ yeah I've seen that thumb finger thing before, can't think where though? 

I showed that vid to my mum an at the point where the girl is walking around the chimney top she went "that's a peice of piss that! It's dead wide!" 

So im just waiting for her to upload a vid of her doing it! :lol: 

 

I bet if you done it at 10 ft you would struggle to keep calm? Times it by 100 an not only would wee and poo be coming out but I'm sure most of us would either fall of freeze... 

 

Not me! I'd jump! :shock:

Where I used to live, there were very tall chimneys belonging to brickyards. I used to see people up them repairing them and wonder how they did it...

 

Someone once told me a line about transmitter tower engineers, who apparently come down very quickly at the first sight/sound of a thunderstorm approaching, but even faster if they hear the kettle being switched on...

Have you ever seen early Fred Dibnah films? He clambers up old wooden ladders, fag on the go and sits on  a little swing fixing stuff!

At least Dibnah wasn't at the bottom lighting a fire...

 

And my legs felt funny when he was walking along the edge of the railway bridge, let alone the chimney itself!

That would have been funny! 

I don't mind heights but that's just plain silly
