  1. The plexiglass floors in towers are another bravery location!
    I like jumping on them for the cheap/safe adrenaline rush: it’s like bungy jump light.

    note: that photo has to be from Ueno Zoo in Tokyo.

  2. My extreme fear of heights would prevent me from even doing a bungy jump light.

    The photo, I can tell you was taken at the Omaha Zoo…. I know this because I’m the one that took it. Yes this is an Ervin Shlopnick original.
