A Chinese construction company revealed their plans to build the world’s tallest skyscraper yesterday. Here’s where it gets crazy – they plan on completing the project in 3 months.

Sky City in Changsha, south-east China, will be a 220-story structure standing at an incredible 2,749ft (838m).

It will house 17,400 people, and also boast hotels, hospitals, schools and office space with occupants using 104 high-speed lifts to get around.

The superstructure that is half a mile tall will be 32 feet taller than the Burj Khalifa in Dubai – the current world’s tallest skyscraper – and is expected to cost almost half as much.

Everything about this sounds like a sketchy idea, as there is no way all of the safety regulations could be met within such a short amount of time.

The Best Neighbor Ever Welcomes New Tenant With Amazing Letter (Photo)

I expected this story to unfold in some scathing and embittered back-and-forth between two tenants. At first glance, my instinct was mistrust and skepticism. This must mean I’ve lived in New York just long enough to be jaded. Needless to say, by the time I finished reading I was ashamed at myself for forgetting that, […]

What If Everyone On ‘House of Cards’ Had Kim Jong-Un’s Haircut? (Photos)

Yesterday there were reports out of North Korea that dictator Kim Jong-Un now requires all male citizens to get the same haircut as the one he has.
