1 Tiny Alien Kitties are Watching You  Sun, Oct 21, 2012 2:59:49am

Watched a show on TV once where they replaced one of those giant multi-section antennas just like that one. Four guys working up on the very top had to build a crane scaffold mounted to the tower that went up alongside the antenna. Unbolt the antenna in sections and lower it to the ground using the crane scaffold and a cable from a motor winch on the ground. Then pull up the new antenna sections and bolt them together followed by dismantling the crane scaffold. Scary, scary stuff...

Hmm...found a short vid on YouTube of them lowering an antenna that way...

Heights are my one remaining irrational fear.

Just looking up at this climbing wall in Reno was enough to start THE FEAR.

Oh gosh, yeah, the looking up and the vertigo that follows. I can't even so much as stand on a kitchen chair and change a light bulb without having something to cling to, and even then I do it very, very slowly & gingerly. O_o

It's right there, on the back of your eyelids—close your eyes and see for yourself.

Indigenous Americans Ruled Democratically Long Before the U.S. DidDemocracy: it was older and more widespread than we thought. At the Oconee site, called Cold Springs, artifacts were excavated before the valley became an aquatic playground. Now, new older-than-expected radiocarbon dates for those museum-held finds push back the origin ...
