It's pretty,
That's what my mom said, when I showed her this, and told her "Freedom tower, is not the tallest bldg. on Earth",, Told her it's 1WTC,,,
But when she found out there were many more taller,, she suddenly was disinterested.
So Ping An is, well 'pretty"

Please suggest her to read some magazines/newspapers or browse the internet. Burj Khalifa has been around for 5 years, and is well known even in 3rd world countries like Bangladesh

The Americans had the tallest buildings on earth until 1996 when the PETRONAS Towers appeared. Reality can change overnight but perception doesn't. The older generations haven't move on from pre 1996 that is reinforced by images in media of floating junks in HK harbor or narrow neon lit alleyways in KL . It's a dilemma that presents itself when perception and reality diverge. Most people stick with the former.

Actually a lot of Americans interested in skyscrapers claimed to have the tallest until Burj Khalifa because they counted the antenna on Sears Tower. My elevator ride up Sears Tower in 2004 told me that.

I think we will see them again in the latest pictures taken of the top of the building. It would be very odd if they didn't continue the cladding covering of those steel crossbeams.

I'm having trouble, finding out where you got stuck on the language? Fasial Shourov, (Toronto Dhaka) ,,figured it out,,
and You sound American/ Mid western (I-94) Detroit to Chicago? I may be wrong.
So
I'll explain it in whole, but I thought I had commas in the right places..
Basically, My parent's think 1 WTC,, (freedom tower) they call it, is the tallest thing on the planet. I showed them. Burj, ST, and GF117, and soon to be 2nd tallest This Ping AN, and the only response I got was oh that's pretty. I thought my English was perfectly clear, and I'm sorry to subject the other former's to this stupid story once again.

To make it purposeful, and not massively off topic Great photos, gx231918,, shows the magnitude

In response to faisal Shourov, My Parents are in their late 60's, they don't even know how to turn the computer on. They believe that everything that comes out of National news at 6:30,, towards the very end of broadcast,, they show the ESB and 1WTC.

I haven't the heart to tell them 432 PA is being built.. Also Willis Tower, they are both taller, than 1wtc or esb.
