the base cladding isn't very flattering when there's nothing to reflect. (or if the reflection is the ground)
Add the lights of the night to the equation and you get this, as viewed from the kpitv cams http://www.video-monitoring.com/cons...itv/silver.htm

the LED display will make it even more impressive at night.

I think he was referring to a turd

We've all heard the story that if "you drop a penny off the top of the ESB, it would kill someone if it hit them in the head"

Again? This is a spambot.

I hate videos like that. Not for the content, but for how they are used to play on your emotions to start to hate other people who are only trying to make a living.
