The way she leans over when she gets to the end!

2. Does this make your bum clench?

He's only got socks on. Slippery, slippery socks.

3. Do you imagine slipping forward and plummeting to the ground?

You could so easily just tip forward.

4. Does the thought of opening your front door onto that feeble slice of pavement above a gaping abyss make your palms sweat a bit?

Imagine if you tripped on the threshold on the way out...

5. Does the sight of this old man on his wibbly-wobbly chair make your feet feel tingly and strange, not in a good way?

Look at the chair trembling unsteadily under his weight.

6. Does your mind continue the somersault so that he tumbles into the void, and plunges headfirst towards the concrete below?

Just like you would if you did a somersault on the edge of a rooftop.

7. Are you imagining the precise, desperate feeling of hanging there by your weak little finger tips, which are losing strength with every passing moment?

Beads of sweat are gathering under your hands, you can feel your grip gradually giving.

13. And honestly, it's fair enough. Heights are terrible things – look at this one.

14. They have a power to them – like they could suck you over the edge.

That's probably the gravity talking.

15. This is an insane place to take a selfie.

The wind strength up there could knock you off without warning.

16. An acrophobic person would not be able to watch this happen let alone do it.

17. Because you're more than likely acrophobic, you feel sick watching this guy stumble on this bar.

One big wobble and you're down.

18. So, OK, not every human on earth has acrophobia – this guy doesn't.

But most of us, wisely, recoil at the idea of clapping pull ups on the top of a bridge.

19. Most of us common or garden acrophobics would not want to cross the Bridge of Nope.

20. As if this ledge wasn't bad enough... it's not a ledge, it's an inch-wide piece of metal.

*Barfs immediately*

21. Us acrophobics would never find ourselves perched on the top of this needle-like rock, 1000s of metres above the safety of the ground.

And thank fuck for that because it's our worst nightmare come true.
