I don't know how much of the world can get so excited about football (the kind played with a foot) that they riot. And murder their goalkeepers for losing. (Escobar?, Colombia) The game is simply too hard.

Look at basketball, and how much scoring it has.
Baseball and American football has less scoring but at least a lot of stuff is happening, and it's progressing to the goal of scoring. Look at football (soccer) you can run to the other side of the field in like 10 seconds. Then what?, you will never score. Never ever, ever, ever score. Each time you get to the other side of the field you will fail. Every time a penalty is made it never works (besides the rare kick from like 7 yards). They have no other way of penalizing you for fouling so they futiliy let you go for a 0.02% chance of scoring what must be a very valuable goal. Shows what chance they have of scoring on a regular shot (must be like 0.005%) And 2-0 is an insurmountable lead. Who wants to watch such a pessimistic game?Offsides rule, how can you be off your own side, this is not American football, where you have to stay on your own side, but soccer where you can run where ever you freaking want, how can you be off of your side (team)? How can you like soccer btw when you like cricket, and their scores are like 278-222?

Go Yankees!

A new row of glass has started! The chamfered sides are now fully wider than the straight sides.

Well if that's true, then the glass is approximately 915 feet high about the height of the Citigroup Center. and where did you see this anyway? Earth Cam shows only those couple panes on the South Side which isn't new

Isn't it ridiculous? Just a week ago it was kind of dead, but on-topic. Now it's overly-active and very off-topic, even with repeated reminders from the moderator. Oh well

The East side with the elevator in the center shows a brand new row of glass starting.

There are about 30 levels left. If they do a floor a week it should take about 7 months. I'd say by the end of the year they should reach the roof.

Won't they start rising quicker once work on the steel and the core is finished?

There was a period of time last a few weeks back where it seemed like the curtain wall progress was moving pretty rapidly, a little more than a floor per week. So maybe they have the ability to move at a faster rate sometimes.

I wouldn't think so. Besides they can't get ahead of the concrete pouring for the core, floors, and fireproofing.

There really isn't a need to enclose the upper floors any quicker than they're already doing at the moment.

If they finish all the glass at the end of the year, that'll leave all of 2013 to finish building out the interior. Plenty of time.

Probably playing catch up for all the time lost to bad winds. I hope the pace continues, but kind of doubt it.

I know this is way off topic but this is a classic.
Football is one of those funny games where teams don't score every time they get the ball. You need a longer attention span than a goldfish to appreciate it.

How do you know the glass won't rise quicker once topped off? Besides, the concrete isn't even that far behind and why can't you fireproof with window panes?

I'm merely making an educated guess.

I don't know the exact specifics why they don't fireproof at the same time they install the glass. But I would presume they just do not want any of the chemicals landing on the glass while there spraying the foam or whatever it is all over the place.
