This is the U.S. Bank Tower in Los Angeles. Not only is it the city's tallest building, it's also the biggest skyscraper west of the Mississippi.

The slide opened to the public on Saturday, allowing crazy people with too much money and not enough sense to slide down the 45-foot-long glass tunnel of death.
