What's with all the "most beautiful" threads?
I guess I would say the Chrysler Building.

Well, who cares?


I'm tired of all those lame superlative threads (most beautiful/highest/density blah), just like TallerBetter.

We need to clean the architecture section from this stuff if we want some quality in here.
I'll see how I could develop this now.

Can we change the title to something like "most beautiful building/structure of each country in the American continent" would that be more acceptable?
