The Moon's overrated: hard to get to and not much to do once you're there. Dune buggies and golf get old surprisingly fast.

I feel like when this building is finally complete it will be as if it was always there. It fits so well IMO.

I didn't take those pictures, I found them on Flickr and shared them. The photographers took those photos from the hills. I wish there was a live webcam facing downtown like that!
