    the worst building in the history of mankind
    SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea's phantom hotel is stirring back to life. Once dubbed by Esquire magazine as "the worst building in the history of mankind," the 105-storey Ryugyong Hotel is back under construction after a 16-year lull in the capital of one of the world's most reclusive and destitute countries.

    The firm has put glass panels into the concrete shell, installed telecommunications antennas -- even though the North forbids its citizens to own mobile phones -- and put up an artist's impression of what it will look like.

    I didn't know that.

    That's not unusual with countries run by dictators. In pre-war Iraq under Saddam having a satelite dish was punishable by death. I think I read that this is also the same in North Korea.
    There's good, fast and cheap. Pick any two.

    What were they thinking? Make one huge building that has more office space than the whole downtown area. Then when you aren't able to lease the space in the smaller buildings, just demolish them and build residential housing in their footprints. Nice easy commute. Everyone works in the same building. lol
