Comparison of pyramids http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Co...f_pyramids.svg

Comparison of approximate profiles of some pyramidal or near-pyramidal buildings. Where the base is rectangular, the longer side is shown. Dotted lines indicate original heights, where available.

hope that this isnt a repost

True. Most of the photos are taken from Yanggakdo Hotel.

I was there in October 2010 and took this photo from the same place:

I know that a lot of people don't like the building but I really love it. The only thing is that this stunning is constructed in the wrong country, unfortunately...

Not sure if this is still valid, but as far as I know North Korea has intranet - closed national network. Internet connection is allowed only for very limited group of officials.

LOL, if there is any, only NK propaganda agents may have some access to this site. Any average citizens of NK are not allowed to have an Internet access since the dear leader boy wants to have a tight control on all information traffics.

This building is both Orwellian and Bladerunnerish. It should be a government ministry building or department.
