1. Why would any sane person offer anyone US$ 1 million to ride that thing?

2. If offered, why would any sane person refuse?

- Chances are, you'll survive and win the million.

Ya man. it looks like they dangle out over the edge of the tower, too. that must be MUCH scarier than just riding around on top of it!!!

Been on that and loved it. And btw i don't get why people are so scared of ides like that. You are far more safer there then driving around in your car.
