However, after taking off that bandage today, and applying my own non-techie version of a standing bandage, I've changed my mind considerably.

Did it look like we were on the edge? We werent'. I am too chicken.
The one where it is just me is just an optical illusion. I am not really as close and leaning over as it looks.
