No this is the complete bullshit thread where you talk about how long your epenis is and hypothesize about the potential height.

Where the **** the mods are is beyond me. The amount of pointless posts FAR outweighs any of the actual construction updates. If they deleted the off topic posts the thread would be 20 pages long.

Thanks do go out to Imre etc for actually providing a reason to wade through all the mindless crap.

show me the link to the OFFICIAL statement by the world council on tall buildings, the only OFFICIAL skyscraper organization that can OFFICIALLY declare what building is world's tallest, that burj dubai is OFFICIALLY the world's tallest building. show me that.

if you can't, then TAIPEI 101 IS STILL OFFICIALLY THE WORLD'S TALLEST BUILDING only until bd is finished a year from now.

Well, you should watch less movies and start reading dr dobb's journal and phrack. You would consider people a bit more for what they really are . Sky tower's sayings are to take with a GRAIN of salt.

Leave it up, Metallitool. We are many enough to know the level of accountability of Sky's sayings. If people love to drink his says, let them do. Whatever then...

And please Sky, be a good boy this time, don't delete this post heh .

And also I don't see how I'm misquoting you. I posted your FULL quote from THIS thread with ALL the context. Bottom line is you posted some crap about finding out secret info about the Burj. People called your bullshit, but you started snapping at everyone. Now it turned out these people were right to call your BS, and you got owned. But even after being owned, you're still acting like you're right and everyone else is wrong. Like I said - pathetic.

Your attempt at smearing me was really one of the funniest things that happened to me this month.

Did the thought of simply apologizing for feeding us bullshit ever cross your mind?

again many thanks for plans/elevations skytower.
am i right in saying the highest point a person can comfortably stand is small balcony area on tier27 or 768m high??


tier27 terrace.


yes i know there is an access ladder to the top of pinnacle which also has a hatch at 818m but i dont know if i would call that comfortable stand?lol
the top shows the aircraft beacon 1m above 818m as mentioned. i dont think can be included as its not a permanent part of architectural element? just like the 2metres of equipment atop cn tower?



thanks again

just think ,when a photographer makes his way to tier27 (768m) for official photographs, he will be standing 215m/700ft ABOVE the tip of CN Tower!!!!! or 150m/500ft above current worlds tallest structure-628m nth Dakota mast.!! or 450m/1460ft above lev86 ob deck on ESB!!! just mind boggling!
