Pants Pee-er: View from Tallest Skyscraper in the World, Dubai

VIDEO REMOVED(?)
WILL TRY TO FIND ANOTHER COPY … STAY TUNED

That’s 1367 feet taller than the glass skywalk on Chicago’s Sears Tower.

By comparison, 4,000 feet above the Colorado River hangs the Grand Canyon Skywalk. Those Hualapai Native Americans don’t mess around.
