Bored in Toronto at WPC 2012? Walk the CN Tower Ledge

Need a kickstart of adrenaline to recharge you for the nonstop meetings and sessions of a Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference? Toronto, the site of the July 2012 WPC, may have just the thing.

The Toronto EdgeWalk opened on Monday. To quote MSNBC, "For $175 Canadian dollars, you, too, can strap yourself into a harness to walk 'hands free' atop the 5-foot-wide ledge on the CN Tower, which rises 1,168 feet in the sky."

I'll pass. But if you do the EdgeWalk next July, tell me all about it.
