I'm not surprised to see Americans only calling me out on the previous page. Posts like the one above me is another example of American butthurtness.

Most of us here would actually think Shanghai Tower is "better", otherwise it wouldnt be leading the spot in the "Favourite Supertall" thread. I'm sorry if I made this into a silly debate, it clearly wasn't intentional.

My intention was that I wanted to make it a more fair competition. And I dont think its fair to throw out Shanghai Tower in the preliminary rounds, which is the most favourited supertall project on this forum.

I think it's fair to remind you people that these country vs country debates tend to get accounts brigged or banned.

I'm disappointed you would say that....If you say that about China, then no telling what you think about Burj Khalifa and the U.A.E.

For the vast majority of this thread, Americans have held their composure and been fairly unbiased, when you consider other national groups. I myself did not vote for the Chrysler building when it was placed against Burj Khalifa. I found the Burj to be more appealing to me, regardless of location. Americans aren't as egotistical and 'superior' acting as the world views us....our politicians may act that at times, but that's what politicians do.
Sort of how China is taunting their new air craft carrier, the first outside of the United States. Taiwan then promptly issues their declaration of the "aircraft carrier killer missile." Gotta love politicians, all across the globe. Point being, don't generalize Americans, and we won't generalize anyone else.

I'm not sure if there is a specific feature on the new carrier which only US carriers have had previously, which may be what you are talking about, but I can tell you 100%, there are at least 9 other countries with aircraft carriers including China. Just thought I'd clear that up. Good on ya for trying to keep people in check dude.

just saying they're working with an aircraft carrier doesnt mean anything. for what ive known they've had one for 10 years and its been used as a merchant ship.

also this is a skyscraper forum not country bashing. its clear to me that divine is just trying to be a troll.

we all know shanghai tower and freedom tower are great towers lets just leave it up to the poll to see which is truly better.

Ha, you're very correct on the number slip. Usually I'm good at correcting people, but you caught me on a statistical error. Party Time!!!

Regardless of the number, the point is still as valid as before. I am unbiased on my decisions, as are many of my fellow American forumers. The same can be said for many Asian forumers, with the few exceptions of certain small-minded people.

We're all from the same planet, who cares what country we're from. These skyscrapers are made of the same materials. Steel and glass that was born from this earth.

Let's enjoy it

Yes, I also wish everyone would think like this. However it would be naive to ignore the bitter truth. The above post by philipx is an example of how many voters are thinking.

Yeah, I think Phill was joking, but the point that Divine was making is equally upheld by that sarcasm as it would be if he were serious. There are many people who do think like this and it's a real problem for the world.

He is suspecting it, and therefore he tells it. I share that suspicion, and it wouldn't surprise me if you are doing that too.
