Let’s just summarise this:
# Chicago, home of leftwing loonery;
# Windy city;
# ‘Modern’ design, e.g. Alton Towers, Florida bridge
# 103rd floor outside the building;
# Nothing to grab onto at all.
What could possibly go wrong?
You know about luddites, right? To me, there are three camps:
# Those techies so enamoured of the god Science that any design is fine as long as it’s jazzy, sassy and cool;
# Those who reject any tech at all, even laptops;
# Those in the middle who go by these rules of thumb:
a) The higher it is, the more demanding and stringent one is at putting one’s life into their hands;
b) The more celebrated it is, the less inclined I am to go on it;
c) The absence of a tried and tested escape route is bye bye;
d) Who would stand on a sheet of glass anyway with a dozen others jumping up and down?
We read further down that it cracked the way it was supposed to. Fine, good luck with that, I’ll pray for you.
