Yup, yup!!....that's how people have got to start thinking. We've got to keep up as a nation.

I think it's pretty obvious that Chicago clearly wins the overall height battle compared to NY...

that doesn't warrant a response other than ; disregard the chicago spire for a moment and you'll realize that the towers within the 16 acres of the WTC alone till be able to compete with all of chicago's supertalls combined. - forget about the classics/UC towers of midtown (including the 1400ft twins that are apparently in the works). i'm just talking about wtc 1-5. with that said, the winner isn't so clear to me... oh and **** pissing contests. i couldn't care less about who has the tallest building, now that dubai has a ******* space elevator under construction. i'm just arguing what i find to be an ignorant statement.

If it didn't warrant a response, why are you arguing what you interpret to be an 'ignorant' statement? Your incongruencies reveal the true source of ignorance...

I think it's pretty obvious that someone didn't do his research.

^ Poor Tammy Faye. God bless her. She looked like the Crypt Keeper in that interview with Larry King.
