Really Miami Highrise you had to post all those pictures again. That's a run of all those pictures 3 times in 2 pages. Yes they are great pictures, extraordinary even. To run them time and again makes them and the forum tedious.

In all the times I heard of blade servers and Blade Runner, I never once thought of beheadings.

I guess you spoke to soon.

In all seriousness I think it is a grave mistakes to be so mad at westerners when we point these thugs out. Be mad at your own people for doing them. It is important to be honest and self aware about your culture. I mean look how many great projects are on hold now, not because of an economic downturn, but because of cultural inner conflicts in the society.
