ICBA to go and look for the picture but a Farcebok friend just posted a thing about a building in Houston with a glass-bottomed swimming pool hanging out 500' above the street!

Urk!

Is there not one in Dubai as well?
Apparently one is planned for London. https://www.domain.com.au/news/worlds-first-sky-swimming-pool-will-float-over-london-20150820-gj3as5/

I see that despite Houston and Dubai, the London one will be the world's first.
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

Never mind the swimming pool having a glass bottom, that would give me a glass bottom!

The world's first in London, of course

Funnily enough, a clip from my 'Cold Feet', being a family walk at the Battle of Britain memorial, Capel le Ferne, between Folkestone and Dover

“There’s a funny story about that, Dad. The Daily Telegraph had a hissy fit a few years ago, ‘why is there no memorial to the Battle of Britain’, and someone mentioned this place, and they harrumphed and said ‘yes, but there should be one in London!’. That’s when Croydon council told them there was one, at the original London airport–in Croydon”

“Does dim byd ar glawr, ac eithrio Llundain” (There is nothing at all in existence…except for London). I understood his bitterness there. Even the people of East Kent felt the capital assumed it was the only part of the country in which anything important or worthwhile happened

Most of that I wouldn't even attempt on foot.  Might manage on my hands and knees if my life depended on it.

I'm amazed he bothers wearing a helmet, if he fell from those heights I can't imagine it would offer any meaningful protection!

I guess if he slips he's going to be more bothered about stopping going over the edge than avoiding bumping his noggin - so it is one of the situations where wearing a helmet makes sense - low speed impact on rocks.

I felt nauseous watching that video. He must have no nerves whatsoever.

I hope the chap hasn't gone to the trouble and expense of investing in a pension, I doubt he'll need one.

Which puts me in mind of a story about Syd Watkins, FIA medical supremo. When they mandated the HANS device for Formula 1 he was asked by a journalist if this proven lifesaver  might find its way into mass produced road cars.

'Prof' thought about it for a moment and replied that he could see no problem with that. As long as people didn't mind surgery and Kevlar straps permanently attached to the backs of their skulls and shoulder blades...

Well that's the more blunt way of putting it but as usual he's dead right.

A bystander, observing His Fredness' antics atop a chimney, once asked Fred's oppo "Does he ever fall off?"

"Oh aye, he did once.  But I caught him."
