If they ever find out how to alter the join date/posts/likes, we're in for it lmfao... A for effort though, this guy practically cloned everything that he could've. This guy was much better than RobertWolpole...

I don't know, but to spend that much time trying, just proves that people have no lives. It's like they are grounded to their rooms by their parents and have nothing better to do. Is there no IP tracking here? Pretty pathetic indeed

Sorry if this is way off topic, but for those interested in these kinds of views, I was lucky enough to party on the rooftop on the 50th st area for NYE. I was about 40 floors up and the alarm was going off on the roof but no one stopped us you can see times square below.

It just doesn't look right. I prefer the design as it has been planned.

At night, the buildings are light up individually to produce a spectrum of colors which, sadly, you cannot find in New York

There is however one major fault that involves Shanghai. Environmentally, the city is a trash dump. Neither one of us would want to live there because of the toxic pollution.

Well that's that for the rant, and to bring this comment back to the topic of this thread, I agree that the One World Trade Center is a spectacular skyscraper and I am positive that it will restore the image of our great country !!!
No I believe he said that for my benefit,, maybe the post I posted several pages back hurt his feelings, and I'm a NY lover, Shanghai and Hong Kong, as well. He's just got a weird sense of humor, if that's what you call it. Says 1 thing than goes on to say he doesn't care about American Architecture, because he's italian, then says he lives in Miami. I don't know? Really couldn't care less, personally his posts and hatred and vulgarity, roll down my back like water on a duck.

That looks incredible! It's starting to really grow on me now. Could you, if possible, also insert the broadcast dishes to see how they will fit in with the mast?

Thanks and great job!

This may be a couple of months old, because that damaged crane boom has been removed already.
