The Sears Tower opened "The Ledge" to the public today. The Ledge is a 4-foot glass balcony that's suspended 1,353 feet above the ground on the 103rd floor. It provides a panoramic view of Chicago, provided the walls aren't covered in accidents. Fun fact: urine spilled from the 103rd floor can break concrete on the sidewalk below.* And not just if you drank a jackhammer, but it helps.
*No not really, stop emailing me.
Hit the jump for a couple more of the NO I AM NOT AFRAID OF HEIGHTS.

Thanks to FDSY, who isn't afraid of heights, but is afraid of towers. Weird.
