For the Acrophobic who has everything

Could you roller skate across this bridge? It's 300 meters long and 180 meters above the ground, and the entire bridge floor is made of glass.

The world's most dangerous hike

"The path, a meter wide, traverses the gorge at a height of over 100 meters above the torrents below ... Now the pathway is well over 100 years old and is at varying stages of decay. Several sections have fallen away entirely, leaving behind only the supporting iron bars." This is El Caminito del Rey, possibly the most dangerous hike in the world. A video of the hike. Another, this one in first-person and filled with butt-clenching moments. And another, in hi-def.

Standing on glass at a great height

Last week, the Sears Tower opened the "Ledge", where you can be 103 floors above the ground, standing on glass to get a great view of Chicago.

Extra space

This apartment is so cramped. I wish I could find a little extra space. (previously)

Get high at your next meeting

Bored with that same old business meeting? Why not try a dinner in the sky? But if it's a view you're after, you could probably take a few of your clients here for the same price. (flash & sound alert; film clip on main site is slow to load)

Up in the air, junior birdmen

It's a bird, it's a plane!, no it's the Special Forces using strap-on stealth wings to zoom silently into battle. We've all fantasized about jet packs, but being dropped from a plane with wings on your back is a silent way to travel great distances before opening a parachute for landing, just like daredevil Felix Baumgartner, who soared across the English Channel. Who wants to go first?

Put 'em on the glass

Walk out over 4,000 feet of thin air... Man, it gives me the willies just to think about being out there.
