Haha I remember when I was watching the Simpsons and Homer was taking a Clown College course and Krusty was teaching Homer some funny words and the words were like: Cucamunga, Etc (other funny words) and the last one was Seattle and Homer burst out laughing when he heard Seattle, it was funny. I felt stupid when I saw that though because For a second I didnt think he meant Seattle the place so I laughed too when he said Seattle, until I clued in and remembered..

If you compare this graphic (Click here) you will see that there is a large discrepancy between how the algorithm ranked the skyline of Seattle vs. how many tall buildings Seattle has.

Note that Seattle's skyline ranks 30th or so in the USA and Canada when using the mathematical algorithm, but ranks 4th when judging by aesthetic factors.

A typically impressive and imposing American skyline. A nice variety of tall, densely packed buildings and a beautiful setting. The reason I haven't given it higher than 8 is because of the lack of character in the skyline. The buildings are pretty much from the same period. Tall, modern skyscrapers are great as long as they are complimented with different architechture from other periods, as is the case in many European cities. You need buildings with history in a skyline.
