Before I ever moved to Toronto and visited the majestic CN Tower, I lived in Seattle, Washington for a few years and saw the Space Needle almost bi-weekly during our commutes through the jammed city.
Compared to the mighty CN Tower of Toronto, Seattle’s Space Needle is only 184 meters high.
By contrast, the CN Tower is not only 553 meters high, but it was once the tallest freestanding structure on Earth and now is the 9th. It’s amazing to suppose that so numerous of the buildings on that list were built in the last 20 years, but the CN Tower is still the tallest freestanding structure in the western hemisphere. Unluckyly, one of our first visits at the CN Tower after moving to Toronto led to a bad bout of vertigo. When all of us got up to one of the observation decks, the cannabis edible I had consumed an hour prior was starting to kick in. Unluckyly, the effects were much stronger than I was expecting. I l received later that I had inadvertently consumed over 200mg of THC, but I didn’t think it at the time. I thought the dizziness and nausea were simply from the vertigo, but the THC in our system was definitely making matters worse. It took me a few years to muster the courage to visit the CN Tower again, because that evening I literally fainted when I looked out the window of the observation deck at 447 meters in the air. My associate managed to revive me without needing to call a medic and all of us promptly exited the giant building.
