One word is not a story. How can you fit introduction, rising tension, climax, denouement, and resolution in just one word?

Also, Pi is a Greek letter, famous for representing the ratio between the circumference and the diameter of the circle.

by the way....I can say some arguments about skyscraper history
for example:
buffalo made some of oldest buildings in the world...
guaranty building, 1895

http://theurbanearth.wordpress.com/2...e-buffalo-usa/
at this time...the only existing technology was the brick on the brick...
so...the steal technology has increased and started the first buildings in steel structure....

the first steel frame building in the world was home insurance building in chicago..built in 1884...it had only 10 floors...unfortunately it was demolished in 1931....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Home_Insurance_Building

Here is NYC's park row, containing some of the city's first skyscrapers (the ones on the far right are still there, the others were idiotically demolished so the Brooklyn bridge could have more turn off lanes
