Heathrow's Terminal Five is an architectural wonder. So much that to change a light bulb, they have to employ acrobats to do so.

The Telegraph reports that Heathrow officials are examining the unusual alternatives to the issue after realizing that using specialized machines were far too expensive or simply unsafe.

So the airport officials are looking at the services of a "Cirque du Soleil-style" company that specializes in super-high tightrope walking. Bare in mind that it is 120 feet above the floor of the terminal. It is one scary job for sure.

But wait. Didn't anyone think that the light bulbs would need replacing after a while? Clearly this was a really stupid oversight.
