Why Not 'Toy" with the World?
Burj and Kingdom will be eclipsed by towers in China. Very soon.
Middle East cant match China... It's just a matter of time.




Were you drunk when you wrote this? Also, I'm pretty sure I remember you being from the U.S., right? Middle aged from Chicago? Show a little respect for your own Country. After all, there is more to the world then just Skyscrapers, and the world doesn't rotate around them. We all know you worship Shanghai Tower(I absolutely love it as well), but when you post stuff like this, it kind of makes you sound pathetic(like it's your life long super hero kind of way, but you're only seven). Plus, only about the first part of your above sentence fragments, are correct. Don't take this the wrong way, as I've never really had as issue with you or your posts, but this one just made me want to jump through the computer and tell you to stfu and take your ass to China then

Not only in the chinese, you gotta think continental. In Tokyo, JP for example, there are 3-floor sidewalks planned near the remodeled Shibuya station.

No, "couldn't is the correct word to use. People use "could" a lot, but "couldn't" makes more sense considering the intent.

I'm getting off topic now. lol
