But those aren't what the supporting towers are going to look like or even their correct heights. they will be taller and we are 11 and a half hours away from the unveiling of these towers and their heights.

Does anybody know the floor of one world trade center in which the sides make a near perfect octogon?

Thanks for posting them STR.
Nope. The floorplates will be that open. There doesn't seem to be any large columns on the exterior wall. However, the windows will be more opaque, but I'm working on that.

You don't seams to be much different from him afterall.

BTW, malec is not a moderator in this section of the forum so he can't remove that idiotic picture or delete that post by the disturbed psycho, we in the UAE forum, know very well.

Nope, it's much more likely he's a 12-year-old troll.

It makes me want to hunt him dowm and beat the shit out of him for being such an audacious moron.

Thanks in advance.
Nope, since I don't mod this section. In fact this section is really badly moderated in general.

I'm not trolling. I'm just saying what I think is gonna happen. Doesn't mean I want it to happen.

I'm not gonna hide my opinion just because it scares your sense of safety. That's bullshit.

Yes it is trolling. Have you even thought about how inconsiderate it is to repost that? That there are NYers here aswell?
It's just like going up to a mother of a killed son saying "you know what, I'm glad your son died, he was an ******* anyway". Of course this is only the opinion of someone but do you see anything wrong with this?

BTW, you do NOT have the right to free speach on this forum. What we say goes and if you don't like it you can bugger off.
