I didn't break it, but the tower guy that dropped it from the 12th floor did. I also snapped a shot of the new Baylor Stadium in Waco while I was supervising the tower crew installing a new antenna.

It wasn't the fall that broke it, just the sudden stop at the bottom! Glad gravity is working well in your neck of the woods!

Good thing that Fat Max tape didn't bonk someone on it's way to the ground. Nice view!

I don't feel good. I think I need to lay down.

Nice view from your office ;)

 

I'm much happier to have a minimal amount of distance between my feet and the ground.

Wow!  I couldn't be where YOU were, much less the guys hanging off the side of the building way up there! I'm like Lily's Dad, have to sit down (oh, already am) just to make sure I'm on firm ground after looking at this.  Guys that do big buildings and things must Have Big Balls, wonder how they can work with them?  Ha! Ha! :D  P.S., that tape just needs a wrap of duct tape, looks like it didn't wreck the tape and spring?? :poke:

Time to see if they honor the warranty.

This building used to be a hospital until the Police department purchased it and moved in last year. I do get to spend a lot of time on the roof, nice quiet place. Here is a 360deg view from the Helo pad. Notice no hand rails.

I can guarantee I would not walk to the edge to check the view!
