I refuse to watch the whole thing


From Wikipedia:

Acrophobia (from the Greek: ἄκρον, ákron , meaning "peak, summit, edge" and φόβος, phóbos, "fear") is an extreme or irrational fear of heights. It belongs to a category of specific phobias, called space and motion discomfort that share both similar etiology and options for treatment.

Acrophobia can be dangerous, as sufferers can experience a panic attack in a high place and become too agitated to get themselves down safely.

Yep. That’s me. This video freaks me out completely. I get jangly sensations in the backs of my legs just watching a minute or two of it. I’m glad there are people who can do this, but there is not enough money in the universe to get me up there.
