The video doesn’t quite capture the experience of seeing Galaxy Girl’s performance in person. I’m got to confess that I’m afraid of heights. I won’t even go on a Ferris wheel. I get a little queasy just looking at those famous photos of Margaret Bourke-White taking pictures out on the Chrysler building gargoyles.
So maybe that explains my reaction to Galaxy Girl’s exploits — when she began climbing to the very top of that slightly swaying tower, I just couldn’t watch anymore, and I ducked back into a nearby tent where I could learn more about how maple syrup is made and decrease the likelihood of being an eyewitness as Galaxy Girl turned the Vermont State Fairgrounds into a smoldering crater.
