                          So if you throw a baby off a cliff onto mattresses and then you jump. The baby would live and you'd die?

                                      I used to be a high rise window cleaner.

                                      There are a lot of spiders in my area.

                                      I feel way less terrible about all the arachnids I've thrown off skyscrapers now.

                                      I had to share because I imagine I'm one of very few people to whom this video was relevant to a personal experience.

                                      Still crazy to me how far up those spiders will climb.
