Rational Conservatism from the Rocky Mountains
Why no, I don’t think I’ve gained any weight lately…
Sheesh! I’m not sure I could look at the picture for 5 minutes without vertigo….
Ah, it’s probably a photoshop…
I have a photo of me at the edge of the grand canyon that is fairly vertiginous.
I saw a guy sitting like that at the Black Canyon once…monor!
I love places like that. I have never had any problem with high places, in fact the higher the better.
I work in the elevator industry. I’ve walked open steel 75 stories up, no fall protection (in the days before everyone had to wimp out and wear fall protection), i’ve sat on open steel 90 stories up to eat lunch and see the ants walking the streets below.
I’m not so sure that is a photo-shop.
Goat, I worked construction as a Glazer for a couple years while in college. We also walked the iron, but the tallest building I worked on was only 17 stories. I used to be able to walk up to the edge of a building and lean over to look down with no qualms whatsoever. We dangled on steel cables on the outside of the building to install the glass windows. Heights didn’t bother me at all.
But now if I walk to the edge of a bridge or building and look over, I actually do have a bit of queasy reaction.
I think it’s just age.
