A Houston high-rise is drawing attention online, thanks to a dizzying video of its most popular amenity - a glass-bottom swimming pool on the top floor.

The Market Square Tower in Houston has a pool on the "Sky Deck" with a glass bottom section that extends 10 feet out over the edge of the 42nd floor.

Take a look for yourself, below ... if you dare.

Jose Mourinho attacks his players after 1 - 1 draw with Everton
Burnley has seven games left but already has two more points than the 33 the team earned two seasons ago, when it was relegated. United continued to dominate possession, but Romelu Lukaku, Kevin Mirallas and Ross Barkley looked unsafe on the break.

There are infinity pools, and then there's the Market Square Tower "sky pool".

Any thrill-seeking house hunters can purchase a 564-square foot studio for $1,805, or dish out $18,715 per month for a 2,993-square foot penthouse.

The building also has a sky lounge, sky gym, poker suite, virtual golf, a movie theater, a basketball court, a billiards room and even a grand ballroom.
