Voilā! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of fate.

This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished.

However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.

The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.

Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honour to meet you and you may call me V.

Very amusing, especially to someone who has "New World Order" as his motto!

Is not the Helghan Empire the government that makes up the Helghast society and the most powerful nation in Alurus in the third century anno domini?

Pragmatic you are not!

May we not continue marveling at the topic headed upon this thread?

Vested in me is it not, my duty to shun the ignorance and continue regardless in spite of deaf intolerance.

Older, yet unseen here to my knowledge.

Base Villain!! Thou shall not inconspicuously fill this thread with scriptures that are comprised of utterly useless drivel, and insignificant nonsense.



Ok, ok... so how about those steel beams everybody??

Vexed that I am, persuaders of negative intent do swarm upon him.
All the sensors that be, paradoxically from the land of the free.
Ponder these thoughts if you may and look inward upon yourselves.

If you understand what V is saying, it's all very good - even if not exactly in the best place on a skyscraper forum. I do not know if V simply has mastery of language or using other sources of comprehension as he carries further motive in his speak, but at least he is showing quite a few new shots of BD!

This being granted, though some of us do enjoy the comments and livelyhood of your recent posts V, I'm sure others here would kindly request fewer posts so that we may more clearly discuss this building and not scholarly grammar . Your connotations are excellent and alliteration alluring, but most people will not take the time to understand it simply because we are focusing here on a wonderful tower instead.

Thank you again OTR, Fury, and Imre for your excellent updates! Even if by but a floor, it is exciting to watch something so groundbreaking continue to rise.

To the poster who is bored of the same angles, either feel free to not visit for a month as others suggested or please go out there and get shots yourself for us that you find correct for your tastes. No, really I can understand having an "over saturation" of BD and wondering why people don't take "different" photos, but until we each visit in person there is not much we can do. In the meantime, we should be very appreciative of what we can see (for most of us half a world away), and realize that Imre and others as far as I'm aware are not equipped with limitless lenses, filters, flashes, and cameras that run in the multi-thousands of dollars. I'm not saying those are required for some of the amazing shots we've seen, but we should be grateful that those who have a hobby of taking photos and updates for us continue to do so out of their own pocket.

Vivid and eloquent is your request and wholeheartedly I agree.
I leave you for now with a deepest thanks and a visual gesture of my gratitude.
