China Creates World’s Tallest Catastrophe

Posted by w_thames_the_d on June 20, 2012


China is nothing, if not persistent. Aside from killing us with food and products, they are now innovating newer methods of homicide. The latest is in making tall, I mean very tall buildings. Put this on my ‘WTF were they thinking’ list.

OMFrknG – what could go wrong inside this “factory” doom? Sky City to have apartments for 174,000 people, 104 elevators.

Based on Chinese elevators’ track record, I guess Sky City residents will be staying in shape, ’cause they’ll have to use the stairs!

Here is WT’s prediction

    Is it the world’s largest double-wide trailer, or a super-size replica of the Soviet’s failed N1 Lunar rocket? You decide. Me, personally, I think the top of the building should be retrofitted with a replica of the Titanic’s bow, complete with bolted deck chairs with mannequin musicians dressed in early 20th century attire; hidden speakers would soothe Frédéric Chopin’s Funeral March. A site fit for a King before he ventures out to Canada’s frozen wilderness.

    Here’s a run down of Chinese highlights for today:

    A lot of CCP pirates must be scrambling to the US to bury their booty: Asians have surpassed Latinos as America’s largest immigration group:

    China already can block out the sun, now she can blog out a whole country: Japanese domains on the web blocked out for two days last week.

    You need to validate this one, but according to a Mercer Survey, second-tier cities and above make China’s cost of living higher than the US’s.

    Whoopsss! A coal mine owned by Mongolia’s South Gobi Resources only has a quarter of the coal originally estimated.

    Not only is China’s new meat factory bigger, badder and contains more meat-pulverizing elevators than Burj Khalifa, but Sky City will be seven times cheaper, too. Ahh… the plot thickens for the Next Mission Impossible: Tom’s trapped in a Venus Flytrap elevator, he plunges with it to his doom, he has mere seconds to slip out his Batman grappling hook before he risk’s Shayna Richardson (a young woman who survived a parachute failure with fetus in tote!).

    Underachieving CCP flunkies weed out 15,000 cases of substandard food:
