What are they sitting or standing on? Is it a communications tower?

I heard of some people hired from slums in India who didn’t ever go home. There were actually tens of thousands.

P.S.

For best results, watch FULL SCREEN, turn up the SOUND, and staple your testicles to the chair so they don’t climb up to your throat.

Makes me wonder what it was like for the poor SOBs that had to hump up all that steel, concrete and lumber 110 years ago to build it in the first place! Not to mention, building concrete forms, mixing and poring in those conditions.

One fine Chicago evening I found myself on the roof of the John Hancock center with a few friends, one of which (let’s call him “Dave”) had a key because he worked there.

I took along my camera because I wanted to get some nice night city shots.

There was this railing which ran around the edge of the roof. It supported a tram-like contraption from which the window washers hung when cleaning same. The top of the rail stood about a yard up from the roof, and two feet in from the edge.

I climbed over the rail and hooked my left arm over it, so I could point the camera straight down the thousand-foot west wall of the building to get a shot of the street. It wasn’t precisely straight down, because the walls of the building tilted in slightly.

The building had an exoskeleton which included (near) vertical beams with the cross section of a foot or so. These beams all terminated at the level of the roof and were topped off with flat surfaces.

“Dave” climbed over the washer rail at the southwest corner of the building. He planted his feet on the tops of the two vertical beams on the corner of the building, facing inward with about a four knot humid lake breeze at his chest.

He reared back, flailing his arms, and went “WHOOOOOAHHHHHHH!!!”

We thought we’d lost him, but he nonchalantly stepped back onto the roof proper, and shortly we all went back inside and downstairs to his place of business.

Forty years later, I find that I can’t force myself to go out on the Sears Tower “Ledge.” Maybe acrophobia sometimes comes with age.
