I've been thinking about this all afternoon and I just don't get it - how is a
hardhat going to help you if you are on top of the highest thing for hundreds
of miles?

The only thing that is going to fall on you is a marauding Air New Zealand 747
on final approach.

It does make an interesting picture though - 

	A man fell from the comms deck of the sky tower today - Luckily he was
unhurt as me managed to maneuver himself in mid air so as to land on his
hardhat.
