I bet that we will have another section that is taller than ultratall by 2030.

I like ultratall the best. There should be a 900 m plus naming contest or poll or forum or something for this!

Since all of this looks like a manhood competition, I propose viagratall, and end of it

Sorry, but shouldn't there be a "gigatall" after the "megatall"? Would make it easier to discern the ranking order, based on computer analogy. And then we could have "hypertall", sounds better than "teratall".

Haha gigatall would mean 1000x as tall as a megatall.

Good point though, I'll try to do better.
