    People cannot focus on just looking at the building in the picture, but have to pepper this thread with negative stuff about the building, its function and generally negative stuff about North Korea. If this building was American people would have reacted in a completely different way.
    See that building I posted above? The gorgeous one? That was designed by Frank Gehry. Frank Gehry is a ****ing CANADIAN. Despite that fact, I still like that building.

    Hey, guys --

    Here's a building built by those evil Soviets -- what do you think?

    That **** is gorgeous

    Actually almost everyone HAS looked at the building in the picture, and determined that it sucks. It's one of the ugliest buildings in the world. Just because people don't agree with you doesn't mean they avoided the question.

    Uhh isn't that what the thread's about?

    The functionality of the building is certainly fair game in determining if it's "cool" or not.

    You're right, people would have reacted completely differently. Especially you. You would've started multiple threads lambasting America and questioning how the government could've wasted so much money on such a piece of crap. And most Americans would've agreed with you. Especially if it had cost 2% of the United States' GDP while there were millions dying from starvation.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    I NEVER asked about the stuff around.. I said the building is North Korean, INFORMED that it was North Korean, I said that first, that it was North Korean, as information, so, to sum it up, I said it was North Korean, and then I asked the question. I never asked about the stuff around..

    Get it? Do I need to explain this in further details to you for you to understand it?

    Thats not the question.. I Wonder how many Americans they could have saved from poverty if they didnt go to Iraq..

    Not relevant to the discussion. The question is simple, is the building nice/cool?
