Sweet. My dogs' veterinarian is running the Sears tower next month. Climbing the stairs to the 103rd floor

Nice pic.

I don't see any hot tubs or tennis courts on the tops of those buildings. Seriously, why go to all the trouble to put up a skyscraper and not put either a hot tub or a tennis court on the top?

Go on.

You can't mention the insane hot pie challenge and not tell us what it is.

Awesome pic. You were up there on the perfect day. You can literally see four or five states on a clear day. The weather is beautiful, and the Buccos gave you a win. I'll be at the race tomorrow too (I mentioned that). I luckily have a hot pass, so I'll be watching it in the 11's pit. Woot. Cannot wait.

Wait. That photo is from Sim City 17. C'mon, you know it is.

Nice shot, and how's the weather up there?

Didn't Myth Busters drop a feather from there???

I don't like the sound of anything called Endorphin Rush.

Yes Chicago, you win.

Did you go on the ledge? My kids loved it and we're bouncing up and down on it. Me, not so much.

Photos like these inspire me to live in a city someday, like live in one of those skyscrapers and not have a car and walk or bus or metro everywhere. I don't know how long I'd be able to do it for or if I'd love it or hate it but dang! I might be going to Chicago in November and I'm dying to go check out NYC just to see what big city is like.
