Just wanted to introduce you guys to the correct tense of the word build. For example, you could say, "SWFC is a building that is currently built, but I wish they had built it closer to Jin Mao Tower." Just an example.

Making fun of my city won't work sorry. I know my city is one of the murder capitals of the U.S. Just like I know 75% of the city is slum-like neighborhoods.
So go ahead make fun of my city, two can play that game. Good luck offending me.

Whoa there Mr. Sensitive I wasn't making fun at all. More a jab because you were trying to "school" people from around the world on the correct usage of a word. And there is that Slogan.... I'm actually a season ticket holder for the Ravens, frequently ride the Metro from Owings Mills to the Inner Harbor, and would call MD home if it wasn't for their Democratic ways surrounding the ownership and possession of firearms. My wife has worked in Hagerstown for the last 5 years and a few years of my childhood was spent in Cumberland. It's just that fear of doing jail time that both my wife and I experience for simply having a licensed firearm on our person every time we visit or drive through MD It's terrible to have your residents and visitors feel like victims in a city that, as you said yourself, is one of the murder capitols of the U.S. I wonder why that is?

I believe that the end of November is more rational and don't ask me "Why?"

However, my next update is near, and it could be just around the corner
I actually am thinking to take one of our "Our SSC Family Friends" for a site tour to have the biggest and the most detailed update ever.... :P
