"At the moment, we are not answering. We'll say it (will be) more than 700 meters (2,296 feet) and more than 160 stories ... The people who need to know, know," Sang, a 40-year-old New Zealander, told AFP.

I remember hearing about this... there was a big war on skyscrappers between chicago, taipei, and dubai. I know chicago tried to beat dubai by adding more stories but dubai keeps adding. Diagram

Here's an idea, let's send a bunch of OUR OWN religious fanatics over there, get them to hijack a plane and knock that sucker over.

That's a handsome building too! It looks like the Sears Tower kinda, but this one is rounded where as the ST is squared off.

I don't see why they would have to be religious fanatics. Hate is hate and murder is murder. Just have to find a few individuals willing to be flight trained and want to go out in a blaze of glory killing a few hundred or thousand innocent people. Nut jobs are O'Plenty in this world.

I wonder how it'll do in a sandstorm? Hahaha, Elvis, you and I are gonna hop the next Gulf Air flight back to Dubai and knock it down! Two Christian Americans crashing into a tower with a plane, can you imagine the news, lol.

Let us not forget that we are friends with South Korea. It is North Korea that we don't like.

It always did piss me off that 'spires' count, but antennas don't. The Sears tower is getting screwed on that deal.

But at least the CN Tower isn't the tallest. That would be like me putting a toothpick on the end of my dick and saying 'look at the size of that!'
