You Sure You're 140? [Sears Tower]

You Sure You're 140? [Sears Tower]

"I don't know Mary. Even though this thing is supposed to hold 5 tons, you could still stand to lose a few pounds. You know, just for health's sake." [Getty Images via Gawker]

The Sears Tower Skydeck is four separate glass retractable "protrusions" that can each hold up to five tons, and is probably the best laxative to be found on the 103rd floor. What's holding you up is three layers of half-inch thick glass (plus whatever joints and connectors they have to connect the glass). The visit is included in the $15 admission. [Sun Times]
