I think quoting pictures in general (you can quote the URL instead! Just remove the img-tags) should lead to one-two days suspension. It's the only way people are going to learn.

(Non-)Expert News Daily NEND

This just in!
The Shanghai World Financial Center has been shrunk to a 16 floor building where the upper 5 floors compromise a huge hole! No reports as of yet if this was accidental or deliberate, however experts are certain this is related to last weeks incident on site where a dog had gotten into the storage closet and shredded parts of the blueprints, which left construction workers and supervisors in dismay. Also, trees seem to be rapidly evolving to a rate where they may soon take over our planet and kill us all.

In other news, the Earth seems to be revolving around it's own axis!

Stunning.

Shanghai really has this scifi touch, this mix between prestigious colossal structures and the slightly dirty looking jungle of apartment buildings around them. I don't really remember Ghost in the Shell, but i kinda imagine the cityscape like that.

I just saw a documentaire about Saoudi Arabia, and I saw some images of the city Riyad. There's a building there, pretty much the same as the SWFC! Also with an observation deck just above in the top. How is this tower called?

That's the Kingdom Centre. It is very famous, actually.

Yes, i remember seeing a documentary about both the buildings in the picture and how they built the golden sphere. They're not that old, are they.

I agree...or maybe set the software to leave them out automatically.
