Looking at those lightning rods makes me wonder when we'll get to see some great pictures of lightning hitting the top of this beast!

One may not like many things about North Korea (and I am one of that people) but the building itself is absulutely amazing...

They left the new top off that model. And what is this half-way through model for? To show the pride in the original construction? Hey guys, it's covered up now, you don't want people to remember the concrete 'phase'!

And in the third photo there appears to be an early construction photo of the Ryugyong showing the central core rising faster than the three wings. . .

It annoys me that the "stripe" or whatever has been unfinished for a while.

Finally it looks finished, despite we all thought it will never be ended.

It might not look like anything special, but this is advanced construction technology by North Korean standards. Most buildings in North Korea are built by large squads of labourers with only basic tools. Because building techniques are so inefficient and labour-intensive, soldiers, students and factory workers, etc, are regularly mobilised for compulsory labour service. Reputedly, all university students in Pyongyang are currently mobilised to build new apartment blocks as part of a drive to modernise the city in the run-up to the centenary of Kim Il Sung's birth next year.
