In an event that would have had me shitting my pants like pants have never been shat before, the glass floor of the 'The Ledge' attraction on the 103rd floor of the Willis Tower in Chicago began cracking while tourists were laying on it. *shivers* Did anybody else just get the goosebumps? What about a boner? Nothing? Is anybody's stomach growling? I knew it -- go get us some bagels.
"Skydeck Chicago is open today while the protective coating is being replaced," said Brian Rehme, a spokesman for public relations firm FleishmanHillard. "We have temporarily closed the four Ledge boxes for routine inspection we hope to reopen them shortly."
Rehme said the visitors were never in any danger.
"This coating does not affect the structural integrity of The Ledge in any way. Occasionally, the coating will crack, as it is designed to in order to protect the surface of the glass," Rehme said in a statement.
Apparently it was only a millimeters-thick protective coating that cracked, and not the actual 3-inch thick glass. Still, it's not like you know that when you're f***ing standing on it and it's cracking beneath you. I would have already been making confessions. I KNOW I CALL YOU ALL MY FRIENDS BUT I REALLY HATE YOU AND DO EVERYTHING I CAN TO BRING YOU DOWN. "Sir, please step out of the box." *opens eyes* I'm not dead! Hey guys...about what I said in there when I thought I was going to die. HAHA -- I MEANT IT ALL, EAT SHIT, I'M STARTING OVER. I cheated death, I'm invincible! *elevator doors open, plummets down shaft*
Thanks to everyone who sent this, at least half of which expressed a fear of heights, and one of which expressed a fear of cold food.
