The Sears Tower in Chicago unveiled its new glass skyboxes today. The glass enclosures jut out from the 103rd floor and allow one to get a full view from that height.
I have climbed mountains, scaled sheer rock faces, with nothing between me and gruesome death but a small nut wedged into a crack and a rope. I love that. But for some reason if you put me at a decent altitude in, or on, a building I freak out. A mere glance over the edge sends me into spasms of irrational, physical fear. Nausea wells up and my breathing goes into overdrive. I can't explain it. Even these photos creep me out.
Sears Tower will not be getting a visit from me.
