|Chickdey||Wow amazing view! I'm a computer tech as well, but I don't see tower climbing in my future anytime soon.|

|1BLKJP||I would imagine that a person that high up would hit maximum velocity fairly quickly and therefore the fall wouldn't matter if you were 60 ft up or 225, you are still going to be a little puddle at the bottom.|

Ok you guys, quit bein' so sciencey. You're makin my brain hurt.
And, the answer to your question is no.
|04-16-2007 10:27 PM|
so i'm guessing ur not scared of heights?

|rebelBullDawg325||rephrase the question or somethin. maybe i can figure it out|

Actually I suck at asking intelligent questions. We are uneducated hicks down here in Mississippi.

|rebelBullDawg325||i dont understand the question. but i'm pretty good at physics|
|04-16-2007 09:41 PM|
I'm not good at it either.
Everytime I look at those pictures I get dizzy. I like my job down here on earth.

|rebelBullDawg325||theres a water tower just up the street a piece that we can climb. well, not supposed to be, but it can be done|
|04-16-2007 09:09 PM|
Did I read your question right?
|04-16-2007 09:07 PM|
|amerijeep||If that tower fell, would the force of gravity be less at the top than at the bottom. Wouldn't the speed be increased the lower you were on the tower?|
|04-16-2007 09:01 PM|
|mswilder||Ohhh and also I didnt mention, that I had to start because there where 60-80mph winds that broke 2 of the cables, so we had to climb to repair them. so I climbed 225 in winds, at that alttitude, of between 60-100MPH, the tower was swaying appox 5-10 ft side to side, that was scary. so everything else that i do now will be no PROBLEM!!!!!|

|Texapple||great views...but way too scary for me|

|Odhinn||Yep, once again I was slower then the timer to fix my post, lol|

|tiny terror||Hitting a group on the ground would probably be bad too, Odhinn.|

|Odhinn||Nice view, It's really not the altitude that freaks me out but the thought of hitting the group.|
|04-16-2007 08:00 AM|
|Scout||That makes me dizzy and makes my palms sweat.|
|04-16-2007 07:13 AM|
My first truck was an old Kenworth cabover, I had trouble just getting used to climbing into that. there's no way anybody would get me up a tower
|04-16-2007 03:43 AM|
|jjseel||Whatta view! Hope ya like it! Me and a buddy climbed a microwave tower just after it had been built (about 25 yrs ago) and took pics just about like that. Aaah, memories....|
|04-16-2007 12:32 AM|
|AzTJ||That first pic made me a little dizzy - congrats on the new altitude!|
|04-16-2007 12:31 AM|
Wow, great pics. Good luck in your new job.
I wouldn't have any trouble climbing up there. It's the climbing back down (looking down to place my feet) that would get me.
