we got a ton of snow this winter and when it melted the building was a slide for falling ice and snow; so much so that they had to close off certain areas. Not sure if they corrected this yet, but you'd think that the architects would have known better

They all got arrested, of course. Don't try this.

Why did you have to remind me that I'm afraid of heights?

It really is a big pissing contest. One World Tower could have been even taller but they went the significance route.

This is the classic case of which average are you using mean or median.

Then Bill Gates walks in.

Now the average net worth is a billion dollars.



Also in Dubai, most of the people living there are not citizens.

Actually that is the case for most new skyscrapers after an ice storm. The trade center is not fully occupied and not fully heated, so you can get sheets of ice building up.

It's was just news because it was the trade center.

The memorial with pools is pretty nicely done. You don't feel like you're in NYC right next to a highway. You really don't hear the city.
