Good Head For Heights Anyone?

So today some window cleaners who were working 70 stories up at the World Trade Centre had to be rescued by New Yorks finest after one of the the high strength (maybe not) cables snapped and left them dangling in mid air, they cut open one of the windows to rescue them. Now as someone who is scared of heights soooooo bad I get dizzy on a kerb this would be one of my worst nightmares.

Brown trouser moment!!!
I can see one hell of a claim going in there.. mental distress, nightmares, unable to work with heights again, loss of earnings etc etc...
@PembsPanther.. every now and then we have a video that keeps resurfacing on this forum of two guys climbing a communications tower. If you ever get to see it, you'll understand what vertifo on a computer screen is like. It really does affect the viewer.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!
