Think China's glass bridge is a bit freaky? Check out this video of AP reporter Amanda Lee Myers sliding down a glass slide. Did we mention it's 1,000 feet above the ground? The 45-foot Skyslide, as it's known, connects the 69th and 70th floors of the US Bank Tower in Los Angeles and will be open to the public Saturday (for a $33 fee) after a $50 million renovation. But a warning from Myers in her first-person account: It's "utterly terrifying" and "nearly a straight shot down." (More Los Angeles stories.)
