J5ou feel that your added weight is surely going to m-ike the building totter to its foundations. It seems Impos-slhle that anything so high can stand without toppling over like a pack of cards. You forget that it has been built since nineteen thirteen and is not likely to succumb iuat because you liavo entered it.
