    Sorry if this has already been posted.
    I've worked at heights before and it doesn't really bother me(not this high though). Don't know if its the camera shake, the emptiness around the climber, or what, but this video really made me nervous!:eek:

    YouTube - World's Scariest Job

    Kept head bobbing and moving my feet while watching it.......weird

    I'm not scared of heights, but that messed with me a little.

    Hell no, I won't go. My butt was puckered at 3500 PSI as I watched that...

    Free climb is the preference? Couldn't do it.

    Ive never done it but that would be awesome to climb the BASE jump off of it. That would have to be one hell of a rush.

    I'm surprised this guy is still alive.

    I'm curious why they wouldn't base jump off rather than climb back down? Figure you would get down a whole lot faster and probably just as dangerous as climbing down.

    Anyhow, looks like one of the best jobs EVAR! ;)

    I could have turned a lump of coal into a diamond with the pucker factor I had watching this vid.

    I like heights to a certain percent and safety. Climbing free like that, no way! I feel sick just watching the video. That does take alot of balls to climb and not to forget conducting the maintenance on the antenna.

    Imagine the wind at 600 ft plus!

    Puckerd is an understatement. You couldn't have drove a damn finishing nail with a good Estwing :eek:

    High places usually don't bother me real bad but that was just nuts! I think I need to bring this chair down a little..I'm getting dizzy....Man..I have no idea how those people do that with the huge acorns they are carrying around.
