I was perusing Yahoo! looking for some sort of inspiration or idea to post about. I didn’t have to look very far as the homepage had this article right in my face. Yahoo has an article about an all glass balcony that was recently built. At first, I am thinking how cool when I saw the picture on the homepage. So it caught my attention and now I wanted to read about it and see more pictures. Well the article was interesting but the friggin slide show made me gasp for air. As a person that is rather fearful of heights, I can only imagine other people just hyperventilating when they stand on this balcony. But I was horrified by the pictures in the slideshow.
Oh yes your eyes do not deceive you nor is this a photoshopped image. This is the glass balcony that is 1,353 feet high. I will let you take a moment to pick your jaw up the ground. So apparently the citizens of Chicago thought it was ok to have children stand on this thing. I am sorry but if I was a parent, I would not let my kids go anywhere near this. They should make this like a ride at Disney or Universal Studios. You have to be a certain height. I am sure that the glass supports it but one of these days we are going to hear another news story on Yahoo where someone had plummeted off the balcony due to a crack or something crazy. Hey maybe it is my fear of heights talking but just take a look at the rest of these pictures and tell me you do not see anything wrong with it??
