Love to see, but rather not to live in.

This is probably the best example why half way up a huge building you get much better views than from the top. The picture has more depth than from the 100th floor, where it would be just 2 dimensional.

I Definitely would!
Whats there to be afraid of? Really? I would love to wake up each and every day of a view over the entire damn city, the sea, whatever, the only drawback would be probably that it wouldnt have openable windows

I'd prefer to work in a lower building. I live in a five-floor, and work in a two.

Work: yes but to live at the 100th floor? No, i'd rather live lower, in contact with the earth.

I would for sure but seriously I'd pack a couple of escape parachutes just in case.

It doesn't matter. The chance to use it not too big, but parachutes will make you feel happier for the rest of your (short ) life
PS the minimum hight for parachutes is around 100m...
