    RUGGED and/or afraid of heights job

    Print Headline: Climbers face monumental task

    HIGHLIGHT:
    The rappellers are part of a team put together by Wiss, Janney, Elstner Associates, a firm of engineers, architects and scientists based in Northbrook, Ill.
    They belong to a group of about 12 WJE employees who are certified through the Society of Professional Rope Access Technicians (SPRAT),
    It is necessary to show documented proof of 500 hours and six months of relative experience when advancing from Level I (Worker) to Level II (Lead Technician) and from Level II (Lead Technician) to Level III (Supervisor) Certifications.
    http://www.sprat.org/LNCert.html

    Do I dare say there are NO Cyburbians that have this certification or job that gave them the hrs to advance ?

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    I experience nausea when I look out the second floor windows of my office.
    Annoyingly insensitive

    I am not exactly scared of heights, but that is just crazy. I would imagine it pays well?

    I'd think that it would evaporate before it hits the ground.

    You'd definitely want to check wind direction first. Updrafts might pose a problem.
