Looking at this, it looks alarmingly skinny.
The world's skinniest skyscraper will soon open up in New York City.

Rising more than 1,400 feet above the ground, 111 W. 57th St. features a facade made from bronze and terra cotta. Its height-to-width ratio, 24:1, makes it the skinniest tower in the world.

The view of my office from KUL-HKG this afternoon. I missed my earlier connection so was sitting in Y. Fortunately the transfer desk staff took pity on me and blocked the seat next to me.
Ah.... so that's what it looks like. At least it's only a short flight! Every time I have a long routing home I ask why did I do it... but then a great fare comes along again and off we go booking the same expecting a different result ;)

Interesting article on how developers are using planning laws to keep going, up, up, up - How Luxury Developers Use a Loophole to Build Soaring Towers for the Ultrarich in N.Y.

Having a late lie in at the Office, streaming the Eurovision final (we don't know who won yet), and about to watch the final vote... Properly prepared, although a bit dusty after the drinking game watching the ABC electoral coverage last night - Anthony Green is getting so predictable :-(
