Throwing around with superlatives, just for the sake of it, is so much fun, right? XD

Though Frankfurt is the de facto Financial Capital of Europe and EU...even if London might be bigger...

Not trying to be pedantic but how can Frankfurt be the "financial capital of Europe and the EU" when London according to all indexes is the "financial capital" of the world?

By the way, loving the photo's and I also find the superlatives a bit cringeworthy. Let the pictures do the talking.

everyday london financial centres trade more money than the entire eurozone countries combined together. the capital of the world status is not given for nothing tho.

it is only one of the clusters of london. don't forget those towers are designed by the world's finest architects and they are built or being built using world's finest materials, steel and glass not to mention the shard is the most expensive building on the planet

p.s london can eat warsaw or frankfurt or any european city for breakfast when it comes to the total number and value of under construction projects.

This thread gets so retarded every 2-3 pages, with the usual lunatics throwing their tantrums because others don't agree with their taste and point of view
