In the free world we say better dead than red.
In China the party officials say better be red or you'll be dead.
The Chinese general busness sector says better think red or buisness is dead.
The poor Chinese citizen says, the only chance I wont see red is when I'm dead.
Finally, if everbody in the entire forum tries to comment on my post, I assure you that this thead is dead.
Enuff said.

Should man with only one woman ever be wed,
Then life as he knows it would prematurely be dead!

Born a Red, Live a Red, Die a Red!

Not only are we discussing a tall building but philosophy as well. In many areas of the world red can mean different things.

Example. Red China and Manchester United. In China the only vote you have is for the party of Chairman Mao. In Manchester you better vote for MC United. What is common here is that in either place if you don't vote red your dead.

So...to finish my statement concerning the above mentioned places...Better red than dead.

Quite a few changes on site. A huge rig has been built on top of the core and one of the cranes has been taken down.
Also, the scaff has been removed on three sides of the building leaving only the corners and the East side covered. On the other sides you can see a huge space that goes straight through and must be 15-20m high. Above that is a concrete wall that goes right around the building and I guess acts as a huge brace.
This building is getting ready to shoot up.
