May 3, 2009: Glass Floor
Oh dear, ladies. Until now you've only had to worry about the glass ceiling, now this.
classicman Sunday May 3 12:48 AM
HA! not a chance in hell you'd get me out on that thing
Beestie Sunday May 3 12:55 AM
I stood on the one in the CN Tower in Toronto. Just be ready.
Sheldonrs Sunday May 3 12:57 AM
I hope they have drainage on that thing cuz I'm sure I'm not the only one that would piss himself dry on that thing.
xoxoxoBruce Sunday May 3 01:03 AM
I noticed it says, "these new glass enclosures", I wonder how many there are?
Slight Sunday May 3 03:55 AM
cool image, cool idea. Totally 'shopped.

"Hey it must be popular. A lot of people go out and never come back in".
"What's that noise?"
"It sounds like dwindling screams."
DucksNuts Sunday May 3 05:51 AM
We have one similar in Melbourne, the Eureka Tower..the worlds tallest Residential building, with skydeck and viewing *cube*.
DanaC Sunday May 3 06:46 AM
I can barely even look at the picture. I certainbly cuoldn't stand on it. It gives me vertigo just thinking about it. I found the glass lift at the Bolton branch of Debenhem's difficult enough.
TheMercenary Sunday May 3 08:17 AM
I doubt anyone could see up your skirt, if you happened to be wearing one, from that height.
Cloud Sunday May 3 09:59 AM
maybe with a great BIG shoe mirror!

Now that's scary. I wonder if they'll install a 'no fat people' sign.
xoxoxoBruce Sunday May 3 03:10 PM
Of course not, they make the best splat.

"Clean up on Main St.!"
Crimson Ghost Sunday May 3 05:12 PM
GO FUCK YOURSELF!!!
Ain't no way in heaven, purgatory, or hell I'm trusting my life to an inch and a half of glass 1,353 feet up.
I don't care if The Christ himself came down off the cross and gave me his blessing.
Cue Darwin Awards in 3... 2... 1...

I'd do it. Anything for a thrill.

I never had a problem with heights, but when I was in the CN Tower in Toronto, I was surprised at my own reluctance to step on that glass. Once I did it, I was back to my old fearless self. At the time, it was the tallest building in the world, shortly after 9/11.

I live in Toronto and I remember the news reports about him back in 1993. I couldn't believe anybody could be that stupid. I calculate it took him about five seconds to hit the ground.
SPUCK Monday May 4 05:54 AM
Who said: "Hit the pavement like a hefty garbage bag filled with chicken soup"?
DucksNuts Monday May 4 06:30 AM
Heights dont bother me at all, but I have felt that same feeling when standing on the edge of something look down and get the "whoaaaa" feeling.
sweetwater Monday May 4 10:46 AM
I doubt I would step out on that glass floor, but I could be tempted if I could take my cat out and put her on it - for at least as long at it takes to get some footage for YouTube.
kerosene Monday May 4 12:58 PM
No thanks. But I will do like sweet and see if my cat is interested. Or my husband.
dar512 Monday May 4 02:31 PM
A quick google search confirmed.
I will not be standing on that sucker no matter how strong it's supposed to be.
dar512 Monday May 4 02:34 PM
If you look really close by the right foot of the guy taking the picture, you can see me going into the building.
capnhowdy Monday May 4 05:10 PM
ZenGum Monday May 4 08:01 PM
I would definitely go on that. And I would pay double to see someone's cat or dog on it. Freak the little fella out. [doggy] WTF?WTF?WTF?WTF? [/doggy]
capnhowdy Monday May 4 09:31 PM
[cat] I'm gonna shit your bed and piss your shoes when I get back offa dis shit.....gonna claw your.... and bite me some..... and vomit hairballs on... [cat]
Crimson Ghost Tuesday May 5 12:43 AM
And I still don't care how strong the glass is supposed to be.
I'm big, not stupid.

Terminal ANYTHING is a bitch.

As someone once said...it isn't the fall that kills you, it is the sudden stop at the end -- also known as "deceleration trauma".
dar512 Tuesday May 5 10:52 AM
I was thinking about this project this morning. The Sears Tower already sways a foot or so at the top in high winds. Won't this projection cause it to sway more?

xoxoxoBruce Thursday Jul 2 12:04 PM
It was on the local news last night, complete with video of kids jumping up and down on the glass floor.
