How do you feel about heights?

And now for something completely different…

After spending time in the military and a lot of time as a contractor here in Hampton Roads and climbing some of the steepest roofs on homes in Yorktown, Virginia Beach, Newport News, Williamsburg, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Hampton, Suffolk, Portsmouth, heights really don’t bother me much.

However, some folks are fearful of heights and wouldn’t even consider enjoying this transparent balcony on the Sears Tower in Chicago

Of course, there’s always the infinity pool in Singapore:

For those that enjoy a little adrenaline with their meal, a restaurateur in Belgium has come up with an idea that is sure to weed out a few fearful folks.  It’s called Dinner in the Sky

The Kjeragbolten boulder is a huge rock wedged more than 1000 meters up between two cliff faces. The boulder is situated in the Kjerag mountain, in Norway.

Rumours say that the rock got stuck there sometime during the last ice age. If you get dizzy, you lose your balance and fall into the chasm below.
