    No, he literally is underground. He went exploring in an abandoned subway line and posted a bunch of pics.

    I saw him posting them on facebook last night.
    Pretty cool but I wouldn't have gone down there.
    Who knows what bums or young persons could be down there.

    I seem to recall there was an underground train station that was built for Roosevelt at one of the hotels.
    I hope he doesn't find a river of slime.

    There's an abandoned subway line here in Cincinnati; apparently the city tried to build it 100 years ago then gave up. They use the station to shoot movie scenes (I think the initial fight scene with neo and agent smith was shot here).

    Typical Opie, so deep those tracks can still see sunlight.

    It's cool being down there, but if he's going to do this stuff he should get a real camera and take a photography class. Those photos suck.

    He's pointing the camera and clicking the button. Just like someone who just graduated from Art School would.

    Is that the rule where he has two more talented people with him at all times?

    I love that video, until he climbs the Brooklyn bridge (iirc). That just makes my balls retract hardcore.

    I don't have a problem with heights, but whenever I see someone climbing a bridge like that it freaks me out.

    I don't do heights. Waterparks, roller coasters, plane rides, fine. But if I am just objectively high up in the fucking air, just to be high up in the fucking air? Uh uh. No way.

    Bridges freak me out. After that bridge collapse in Minnesota I was crossing them all the time in Wisconsin and Minnesota and losing my shit every time. Bridges freak me out.

    Same with going on the Golden Gate Bridge and staring down. Jesus.

    I'm the same way. Finally figured out it's a fear of falling not height.

    Locked into a coaster 200 feet in the air is nothing. 30K ft in a plane? Fine.

    30ft up on my roof? Nope. 20 feet up in a tree? Freaks me out.

    Because with that stuff you have a purpose or some fun is happening. Being way up on a bridge just means you have to play your odds and not die. I'd be the odds are way worse from being in a car on a bridge dying than on a roller coaster or an airplane.

    My feeling is that in a coaster or a plane there's no way I'm falling out.

    Standing on my roof, up a tree or on a bridge there's nothing to hold me
    from falling. That's what freaks me out.

    I can go up the Empire State Bldg and be fine because they have high fences.
    I went up a lighthouse on the Outer Banks and hated it because the deck only
    had a 4 ft fence around the upper deck.

    Same here. The plexiglass balconies at the Sears/Willis tower, no problem. But three steps up a ladder and I turn into Fez.
