There isn't enough money in the world
Looks like fun.
I've seen this before; I'd do it just to bring my camera and get the view. Heights don't really bother me, but I might sing a different song once I got that high. But I would try.
Why can't you parachute down?
OMG...I couldn't even watch the whole thing!!
About 12 years ago I got offered a job in the Houston area doing this. It paid $15 per hour at the time. Not that great of pay. If they would have made it $25 I would have been all over it.
I'm sure I'd do it for less but I couldn't see turning down $100K for it.
That's what I was thinking, at the very least u could wear a parachute as a safety precaution, IMO
U would think whoever engineered the tower could have designed something better to facilitate future repairs, like having the ladder inside a cage with some kind of manual elevator to tote the tools or better yet, just leave the necessary tools in a weatherproof box at the top
It blows my mind that people are willing to do that job for 15 bucks an hour
Not not a matter of money. I don't have the guts. So no amount of money would be my answer.
I am really afraid of heights. I wouldn't do it for less than a million a year. lol Literally started feeling nauseous just watching him.
I'd do it for $1.
Been there done that, just not a tower that high though.
I'd probably have to get a couple hundred dollars to do it.
I don't understand why they dont atleast have a parachute or SOMETHING. That to me is just ridiculous, one mistake and your dead.
I would die, likely falling off (due to becoming frozen with fear) part way up. Reaching the top of the tower wouldn't even be close to a reasonable expectation of achievement for me.
So, before I came up with an amount I would have to be paid, I'd have to do the math and figure what my family needed to make my impending death worthwhile.
Cash up front. Ironclad agreement. None of this non-payment, after-the-fact glitch potential in the deal. :laugh2:
Get me up that high on an open-air, ladder-style structure... voluntarily? NO! Not willingly and certainly not without being heavily medicated, which would add to my impending death potential. I admire those that can do that sorta thing, but I am not a member of that particular group of human beings.
Don't sell yourself short the climb is worth a couple of thousand.
OSHA won't permit these guys to have this kind of fun on the job.
