Here's a video of a guy named James Kingston climbing to the very top of Marina 101, a giant apartment-hotel building in Dubai that is currently under construction. According to Sheffield Holdings, the company designing the building, it will be the tallest residential structure in the world. Ignoring the fact that doing such a thing is (presumably) very, very illegal, Kingston still summited the 1,232 feet (425 meters) structure. This POV video is quite a sight to see, particularly due to Kingston's very casual demeanor. Watch if you like and then maybe hug the solid ground beneath your feet when it's over.
