Hehe ok. Sufficient to say I wouldn like such ideas, it would be an esthetical, communicational and engineering suicide, I think...

However, given that we are on a skyscraper forum, I will probably meet fierce opposition to the above lines I just typed, so Im going to go and get a shield to protect myself... :P .

Oh yes judging from things I've read from other people blowing fire at others who don't share the same thoughts is quite scary defending and standing their ground like it were their developments and their millions or billions being spent on a skyscraper. Men are so funny like that sometimes. jokies.

Hm, I do not know if its particularly gender related, but you may have a point. Welcome to SSC, anyway .

Hi Deq.

I haven't heard anything about a radio mast. Please give a source to this info - I am interested to read about it.

I heard that when the wind blows the tower can bend in directions, so if the wind hits east side, then the east side floors will increase in floor height due to expansion in their vertical walls in up and downwards meaning the walls will tense. As on the west side of the tower, the floors will decrease in height and the walls will be compressed. (by very minor length of course) Is there chance that the concrete might crack if the tower overbends?

I wanna say that as soon as the horizontal steel beams on top of the 15th floor goes in places, 16th floor will start very very very soon.

He's talking about what I said, adding onto what ZZII said. I asked if it was nightcam but also light air pollution therefore more visible.

Not air pollution, just light pollution, as 'monkey' mentioned. An annoyance for all astronomers...

Hi OTR.

Great pics.
The date on your new toy is a few days off - just so you know.
