When City Life will be completed (at least the main 3 towers), Milan's skyline will take an incredible step forward. If we consider that new towers will be built in Porta Nuova too and more clusters are under evaluation, I think that Milan has good chances to improve its position in the skylines ranking.

It was Plantagenet Dinasty against Capétiens Dinasty, it was France against France. This is the reality, we're not on a "Hollywood movie forum", we are on Skyscrapercity.

If you want to respect the Lionheart King, the Tomb is closed to the Plantagenet historic Capital (Fontevraud, Anjou) so far to the Great and lovely city of London.

I stop that...

Get real. Leave the 19th century. Try blazing through the 20th which the rest of us left a decade and a half ago and arrive in today's world.

"Empire" belongs in a museum and so do your xenophobic attitudes as well.

You can vote your island out of the EU next year for all anyone cares but please don't bother the rest of us with your Anglo-Supremacy ideas- go join a UKIP debate forum where someone might give a toss about your adolescent world views.

Edit. Looking into it, this so14 seems to have been an obsession of yours, it appears you have falsely accused several other forumers of being this so143 guy. further false claims made by you should be punished with brigging or banning

Let this be an end to it. TO CERTAIN french forumers, please stop sending me personal messages of your insults, racism, nationalism and personal attacks, I have no interests in conversing in such a distasteful and unpleasant manner. This is THE END of it ok, don't contact me or you'll be reported. Let's move on, I'm prepared to be the adult here, I hope for once you are too

In London, however, rainfall is generally weak, with a different distribution during the year compared to Mediterranean cities. The peculiarity of the English climate is the extensive cloud cover often present, even if it doesn't rain a lot.
For this reason London is known as a grey city.

Hi.

So much sentence i would give an answer ... So much passion, hate, truth and bullshit...so much interesting as much as ridiculous comments... In a non appropriate thread...


Could we finally get a VS thread back in order to let the other threads alone ?
We are the best rivals in the world, being so close geographically, historically, culturally, economically, population wise (...). We love to fight each other. Could we please get a room ?
