Just everything about height's especially wide open scares the [email protected]%* outta me. I don't care if I have 8 harness belts on,, NO WAY for me.

I said it before it's quite incredible how humans can make things of this porportion,, Just hard to fathom... I know this is off topic, but humans aren't the only resiliant ones on this globe,, found this on you-tube.. It's worth watching the 6 minutes worth,, it pretty much blew my mind on how other creatures work in unison as well as humans.. Check it out its (im not sure how to paste the site) so i'll type it.. Type in on youtube Giant Ant Colony, it's the one authored by antworkshop.com.. Enjoy it's quite impressive. You have to see how massive it is underground when they remove the soil.

For what he was doing there in the picture, I don't think they just throw anybody up there . And I am sure he knows he is doing a very important job.

As to how much he makes, we might never know. But I think half of the world's new wealth are created in China at the moment.

I would pay to have that job. Exhilarating heights for starters. Who here wouldn't want a hand in such a monumental and elegant skyscraper such as this one.

I believe there will easily be 200 workers at one moment, and even over 1000 who have contributed on this project once it's finished.
