The fact that this will be the strongest, safest skyscraper in the history of mankind should be amazing enough for you. It will eat planes for breakfast.

Same thing was said about the Titanic. Let's hope that these guys know what they are doing this time.

Well it is being built to withstand a category 5 hurricane, and a higher than 5.0 magnitude earthquake. That's pretty strong!

Arm chair Generals fighting the last war. YAWN Some of you need to read the news now and then.

What keeps folks in the Pentagon up at night has nothing to to with airplanes, and nothing in the world well stand up to "The sum of all fears" A nuclear bomb detonated in a major city.

So, let us never bring up the subject of a 9/11 type attack ever again.

Planes (passenger jets) don not run on Tracks...Trains do,
How can a guy who cannot type in English correctly
comment on how U.S. Air Traffic Control works?
I smell an eTroll and it must be squashed!

I'll save the next dumb ass some typing and post one for them,

"How can the US take Soooo long to makes 1 skyscraper when
Bangladesh can build abouts 20 floors per weeks , also why do
youse use a big red crane in Bangladesh they use ropes, oxen,
and wood to build a better than USA type skyscraper,
PS, why are there no people in the web cam photos of the construction
do youse use robotics to maks such large tall building...Tooo Slooow!."


Any other forums this full of nonsense? or is it just the WTC that gets
all the wackos? I thought I was going to get some insight & learn about
tall buildings on here....You have to sift through a bucket of crap to find
a small glimer of usefull info on here, WHERE THE HELL ARE THE MODERATORS? Sheesh!
