How are you when it comes to heights? For me I am so-so. If I am inside a building, car, etc., I am OK. If you want me to skydive, mountain climb, go way up on a ladder, climb a tree, well, that could be a different story.

I remember the first time I climbed the Empire State Building when I went out on the observation deck, even though it's enclosed by fencing to avoid any problems, I was still a bit nervous looking out over New York City. I can't even imagine how people built that building and worked sky-high putting the Empire State Building together.

The same goes for bridge builders and how they could hang so high working and over water also.
