    Maybe. But knowing them it would probably fail on takeoff and crash.

    I think that it looks cool only from the fact that I am into urban exploration. Personally, I think that wandering around that building for a while would be ****ing awesome. However, since the North Koreans are probably not too keen on having Westerners do this, I can't really enjoy it in that sense. From an aesthetic standpoint, it sucks and is a giant eyesore. This has nothing to do with politics. I can look at many pieces of beautiful architecture built by dictators, be horrified by the human cost of building it, and still appreciate it from a purely aesthetic sense while still being disgusted by the whole thing. The Nazis and the Soviets designed many beautiful buildings; I'm no fan of totalitarian art, but that's because I think that a lot of it genuinely does suck or I specifically do not find it aesthetically pleasing. A turd is a turd, and that's what this building is.

    Also, I love how typing in "Hotel of Doom" on Wikipedia automatically redirects to this turd.

    Seems like Americans just love to keep bashing and use propaganda against North Korea.

    Good grief, dude. People told you years ago when you posted this thread that it was obvious the whole reason you posted it in the first place was to bash Americans. You tried to deny it, but you're just not very good at subtlety. Your motivations are and were and always will be plain as day. Give it a rest.

    I would have to research the building ...yet unless functional and providing housing, greenhouse farming or business space to their citizens the building is just grandstanding the greedy dictator.

    Truth is, we know absolutely nothing about North Korea from independent sources. All we know about North Korea is what is fed to us through our insane media.

    The whole point of this thread ofcourse is just to demonstrate that most Americans cannot admit anything good about North Korea. I mean, the same people who think this building is ugly thinks Empire State building is pretty. Thats basically the same as saying Kristen Stewart is not nice looking, but Kelly Osborne is, just because you like Ozzy Osborne and don't like whatever those vampire movies are called.

    Its pretty ****ing funny actually, makes me quite worried about what is going on in the US when people on this forum says the building would look nice with a mushroom cloud behind it.

    Are people in the US really that sick?

    Where are the brains and the common sense? Where is the humanity, the understanding and empathy?


    Just go watch idiocracy, learn something from it and try to prevent the US from slipping even deeper into that scenario.

    Re: Is this a cool building?

    No, my intention was to confirm how big fools some Americans are actually.

    I wish I could say something nice about Americans, but I cant think of something. But I will abstain from saying anything bad about them this time



    Since my last parade on this forum I have come to realise that most people are complete and utter morons, ridiculous fools and brainwashed assholes, but none more so than the Americans

    Yawn. You're still here? Give it a break. Anti-American rants are soooooo 2002.
