Actually, Long Beach is considered a suburb of Los Angeles; in fact, a large one. Los Angeles county is made up of dozens of cities, of which most are suburbs to the main city, Los Angeles. Los Angeles city and Long Beach actually border each other and share one of the world's busiest ports.

And for the pyramids: definitely the TransAmerica in SF!

As per the my point of view Khufu is the World's tallest pyramid ever. I saw the many of pyramids and no one compare to the Khufu and the people also say that this pyramid is the tallest pyramid.

The tallest pyramid is the Transamerica Pyramid in San Francisco, United States (260 m). The largest pyramid in the world is The Great Pyramid of Cholula in Mexico.

I'm afraid the the tallest one is hard to say. But the oldest on may be the one from Egypt.

The Ryugyong hotel in Pyongyang is technically the tallest pyramid.

This is my first time i visit here. I found so many entertaining stuff in your blog, especially its discussion. From the tons of comments on your articles, I guess I am not the only one having all the leisure here! Keep up the good work.

in my opinion, it looks very out of the ordinary, i think it has definatly been man made or at least as stated, man has touched it in some form and changed it. i really hope this is true! lol

wu zetian - i know her from civ 5!!

so it's called the 'white' pyramid because some guy on a plane saw the pyramid was white, right?
This mystery deserves a thread of its own! I think such a pyramid could easily be in a few, especially if made out of existing hills plated in limestone.

I doubt it is fully man made but who knows... Maybe Chinese government are still superstitious?
