I live in Chicago and the Apple staircase gives me the willies too. That seemingly unsupported one is downright but disconcerting.

We must be weird though. I point out to my friends when we go to that store that the staircase is glass and they literally seem to not process that at all. It's a staircase to them...who cares what it is made out of? Then I watch them blithely trot up the stairs and watch the stair flex under their weight and I cringe.

The stairs are pretty damn cool though.
