I don't know about /x or /y lamps, but a case of 160W SBMVs would do the payment.  ;D

I might consider going aloft that high up if payment was for a case of 160W SBMVs too...but they would have to be clear ones!  :D :mv:

It's not so much heights I mind, it's falling from them I have trouble with, especially the hitting the ground at high speed bit  :poof:  :mrg:

It'd be good if we could do what the characters in a sci-fi book we read recently could do, they were on a ship with artificial gravity (when will someone invent that..?) and the ship's computer system was programmed to switch it off in the area where someone was if they fell. They just yelled out "falling" and they found themselves floating in mid-air..! Of course that resulted in pranks where someone would yell "falling" when a mate wasn't actually falling, to everyone's great amusement, except of course for the victim who found themselves floating with no warning  :lol:
