Stairway To Heaven -- Climbing TV Towers
Those of who you who get a bit wobbly at the top of a stepladder are strongly advised to look away now, because here's helmetcam video of just how you get to work when your office is at the top of a 1,768 ft TV mast.
This vertigo-inducing footage appeared on
The On-Line Engineer.com, and suffice it to say it's convinced us that we have no interest whatsoever in a career in fixing things at the top of TV masts.
[On the plus side, this is one job that can't be outsourced to someone sitting in a cube in another country.]
