National Geographic photographer Joe McNally climbed to the top of Dubai's Burj Khalifa so the rest of us don't have to. He posted this image to his Instagram account, adding, "My old battered shoes climbed the worlds tallest building today. What an amazing structure! Tweeting from 820 meters straight up!"

Ok, here's a weird thing.

Sometimes, when I find myself looking down from a height, I get a strong urge to jump.

It's not a suicidal urge. I'm not depressed or anything. I could only really describe it as a giddy, exhilarated feeling. There's not danger I would actually do it. It's like some part of my brain is stupid enough to think I can fly.

Does this happen to anyone else or is it just me?
