Are you self medicating or are you just upset that they didn't rebuild the twins?

If you directly compare the great mosque and the spire of one world you get a minaret and well Google Islamic spire 9 times out of ten you get images of 1 world and that spire also if you were to invert the inner pool you would get a strong resemblance to the kabba

Even though I was a staunch supporter of the rebuilding the twins effort, the boat has passed on that opportunity, the FT is now growing on me finally.

Yeah, I know you did. I just frequently read the responses in my email before I actually log into SSC and noticed you edited it. I'd been waiting for a while to see if they were going to turn everything on...refresh, refresh, refresh

Ever since they lit up the spire on the 29th, I've been wondering why the bottom of the spire always has a different hue compared to the rest of it. Can anyone clarify this for me, please?

I think it's just like the Empire State Building, where you can accomplish almost any lighting scheme at any given time. It's just how they wanted to light it up, but I don't like it either. But it doesn't compromise the lighting of the spire, since the beacon and the top of the spire looks so great. And I'm sure it won't be always like that, just every 5 minutes. Then the bottom will change hue.

it's off http://www.earthcam.com/usa/newyork/...cam=liberty_hd
i'm guessing that it was a test of the standard white lighting. It looks nice from earthcam.

They turn off the lights at 12 every night.

NYC is so dense. That's how cities are meant to be.
