Ring Around The Rosy--Canadian Style



Ring around the rosy
A pocketful of posies
"Ashes, Ashes"
We all fall down

"Ashes, Ashes"...Sure, one of the more positive/upbeat/uplifting English nursery rhymes--Yeah, Right! Doesn't really reflect the core values of that culture, now does it?

ID Caption:
Located on the roof of the CN Tower's restaurant at a height of 1,168 feet (356 meters), the EdgeWalk in Toronto allows visitors to slip into climbing harnesses and walk around the edge of Canada's tallest structure. There's also a glass floor 1,122 feet (342 meters) above ground level, and although this glass is only 2.5 inches thick, it's strong enough to hold 14 hippos -- if they could fit in the elevator.

The caption doesn't say whether there are any fees involved, or whether those spiffy red jumpsuits are for sale--I want one--searching Amazon with "red coverall" results in a hit. I suppose if I sent an email to the CN Tower Customer Service Dept, they would be only to glad to fall all over themselves informing me of who their vendor is--that's the Canadian way as they obviously feel willing to accomodate all the Americans who are leaving.

This pix also has me wondering, if the CN Tower keeps track of this, what country's nationals are at the top of the "chain" willing to try this out! [based on a per capita basis of a given country's population--that's the only fair way to crown such an achievement].
