I hear you. We went up the Eiffel Tower two years ago because it's the Eiffel Tower and that's what you do. Last year we went again and I was NOT going to go back up there. In even a gentle breeze you can feel that sucker moving.

But my little girl begged and everyone in our group gave me a hard time so I went.

Dumb move again. I got vertigo up there and had to put my back against the inner wall up top and I felt all funky and weird.

I just don't see the fascination with going up on big buildings like that. Yeah the view is nice but if you slip, you die.

My wife's afraid of heights too. She gets an upset stomach seeing me on the roof cleaning the gutters or something.

Remember the story of the glass platform overlooking the canyon?

Yeah, I am still waiting to see if that really happens. That would be sweet. ;-D

It's the helicopter pad. It's not really a tennis court.


So then they rolled out a carpet for that? Ok, that does change it up a bit then. I'd definitely give that a shot, but I'd be staying away from the edges and not up there very long. :-b


NO WAY would I do that. I'm terrified of heights. Even those pictures of the guys near the edge freak me out a little.

I wouldn't even go up in that building, let alone go out on that Helipad.

And tennis out there? Not in a million years. :-o :-o


The more I think about it, the more I'd have to do it. I'd be scared as heck, but I'd have to do it once. :-D


I was thinking the same thing. I would totally have to give it a shot. I wouldn't be my normal hyperactive tennis fool. I would probably look more like a 60-year old who just stands there and plays from a 3-foot circle. :-b

I think it's awesome. I think America needs more monuments. This is cool.


Of course, that doesn't mean I'm going on it. But I still think it's cool.

I'd step out on it. 8-o



I wonder if they have a drainage system for all of the people that pee their pants after they step out onto it. :-b

Well, it won't be as fun as this would be, but I am going to go play tennis anyway. (with 40-MPH winds though, I don't think I would want to play up there today.) 8-o
