Default Mind blowing pencil carving

Picture speaks for itself

The most delightfully strange pictures of 2016

Workmanship is not perfection; it is how well you can cover your mistakes.

I HATE glass bottom bridges and overpasses. I cannot bring myself to set foot on such structures. The first one I encountered that spooked me that way was the glass bridge from the Anne Franke attic into the Holocaust museum in Amsterdam. There is also a glass bridge in the Mall of America that no temptation on the opposite side would be sufficient to make me cross. The glass bottom "closet" in Chicago makes me woozy just looking at pictures of people standing in it.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Tom - I get a queezy stomach when I see people holding their children in their arms near the railing at Niagara Falls - so no glass bottom anything for me too.

It's now changed, but the center section of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge used to be open grating. Never thought about it when driving over in a car, but it was a shock the first time I went over it on a motorcycle. Probably should have mentioned also that I have a serious problem with bridges.

I know a number of people that when standing at the rail right at the lip of the falls (you're mere feet away from the water) feel very tempted to climb over and jump in. Apparently it has a hypnotizing effect on some people. I can only stand there a minute or so, looking at the water, before I feel the urge.
It's so very close and no one there to stop a person.
