      What would you do?

      For the Millennium Portsmouth City Council commissioned the Spinnaker Tower. Despite it being quite a bit over budget and the outside lift failing, it is a popular tourist attraction at Gun Wharf. One of the attractions is the glass floor where you can see everything below.

      Would you visit the Spinnaker Tower on a sunny day when you can see all the way across the Isle of Wight? Would you walk on the glass floor?

      Would you?

      So you'd be alright standing up there with all that space below you?

      Well that's good.


      However that pales in comparison to this...



      I wonder how many of you would cross this bridge?

      A bit like the glass floor in the CN Tower in Toronto. You know you are quite safe on it but it is still unnerving looking 1,200 feet straight down with nothing but glass below you. If you are ever in Toronto, don't miss a visit, Glass Floor - CN Tower

      any reason skyuser dont allow youtube to go full screen?
      all it makes people do is go direct to youtube

      The owner of the website who has embedded a YouTube player has disabled fullscreen.

      YouTube updated their website in a way that now makes this no longer possible.

      There are no 'bug fix' updates available for the forum software we use, so unless a major update is made there is no clear path to fixing this issue at present.
