Skyscraper windows are very strong, but they can be broken.  They would use those lifts for window washers to put a new pane in place.

Would you be standing underneath that window?

Gratitude as a discipline involves a conscious choice.....* Victims of circumstance owe it to fate. Victims of choice owe it to themselves.*One of the widest gaps in human experience is the gap between what we say we want to be and our willingness to discipline ourselves to get there.

Gravity takes over.

Anyone or any thing in the pathway between the window glass and its final destination will be damaged/injured/killed.

International Building Code requires that all glass-encased structures have their panels accessible from the inside of the building for replacement.  Usually there is a frame, the panel is set on silicone adhesive, the panels are all of a standard configuration, and maintenance workers can do all the work from inside.

IBC also requires that exterior glass panels be shatter resistant, that if broken that the shards will be trapped by ledges along the way, and that the panels be tempered glass which breaks into chunks about a quarter inch by a quarter inch.

Since 9-11-2001, glass panels must pass a specific thickness/size table, and must be sandwich glass (much like that of an automotive windshield).


Our dwindling supply of leftists feel particularly morose, depressed, and hopeless around Christmas. That is all their fault. They feel it acutely because guilt will never leave them alone -- and will be their sole companion for eternity.
