I just watched Build it Bigger on the SWFC on cable TV again. Why does the host say that when done this building will be the tallest building in the world? Are the producers misinformed? I thought at present Taipei 101 is taller. Then the Burg when done. Are there separate catergories since the SWFC doesn't have an antennae or other structure on top to add to the height?

Sometimes TV show producers like to stretch the truth out a little just to get people interested enough to watch the show. Just like FOX News here in Chicago . Or perhaps the producers and writers of the show just simply screwed up on there homework or just didn't do theres ...
