    Now on DVD or was that actually some architecture advertisement?
    Won't send them any money in the latter case though.

    It would be nice if once in a while we could build a building that doesn't have to be called "the" anything, although I suppose "Shard" is marginally better than "Gherkin".

    On the other hand, the good news is if we are building buildings that look like that it means it is now officially The Future.

    Where do I go to pick up my hovercar?

    If it's higher then a tree I don't belong there I get a panic attack from a deep bowl of soup. Nice skyscraper though but I wish people would stop buildings these things, messes up the landscape.

    I was just waiting for the four sides to split apart and a giant missile to launch from the middle of it.
