Hate to be in the elevator all the time with other people. Its annoying.
Isaiah 28:2
Behold, the Lord hath a mighty and strong one, which as a tempest of hail and a destroying storm, as a flood of mighty waters overflowing, shall cast down to the earth with the hand.

Matthew 7:25
And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

I would do it in a second if I had the money. I'd want to live in Hancock in Chicago.

well, just have a big hammer (for breaking the glass) and a parachute by your side, and you'll be fine.

I live in a 5 floor building and I HATE when the elevator is at the 4th/5th floor because I have to wait like 20 seconds till it comes.
I don't even want to imagine when happens in this buildings...

erm NO! If I was forced into a high rise being in Australia I would want to be as low as possible. Less risk of fire and in Aus almost no earthquakes so I wouldn't get burried

The only thing I miss living in a skyscraper is that you don't have a garden. Here in Amsterdam every ground floor has a garden (mostly not visible from the street) When I was young we had a shared garden of 30 by 30 meters, always lots of kids playing. We had so much fun. Sometimes you see somebody you know walking by and you just step out of the door to say hi. If you live on the 130th floor you don't have that kind of "contact" with the streetlevel anymore.
