SkySlide? Include Me..... Out!


Angela Cox,

takes a photo with her phone as she takes a ride down a glass slide during a media preview day at the U.S. Bank Tower building in downtown Los Angeles, on June 23, 2016. Starting this weekend, thrill-seekers can begin taking the “Skyslide,” a 1,000 feet high slide perched on the outside of the tallest skyscraper west of the Mississippi. All that separates riders from the dizzying space below is a piece of glass just 1.25 inches thick. Photos of the Week: 6/18-6/24 - The Atlantic

I would do it. I 'd just think twice before doing it in short shorts.

And "enjoying" it whilst watching the screen of her phone as she videographs it.

Wonder how much liability insurance the owners of this thing are carrying?

Unless it wraps all the way around the building and ends at least ten floors down, I'm not paying eight bucks.

Now then, if the Skyslide went from the US Bank building to a neighboring skyscraper, then you'd have something.

Pictures of people taking selfies always, but always, remind me of that old cartoon of the idiot looking confused as he smacks himself in the head with a hammer.

You're assuming she's taking selfies. She could be doing a vid through through the main camera

It's a suicide magnet. What were they thinking? You know it's inevitable someone is just going to eff it and deliberately tumble over.
