When Wonder Woman's jet is stolen and flown into this thing, it will be the most useless terrorist act ever.

That is one ugly looking building, can't we get skyscrapers with a little style?

And now you've filled me with both laughter and self-loathing.

They'll never find the rubble.

It's ok, they'll just miss it and crash into the runway like they normally do.

Sure it will be invisible. And those x-ray specs you sent away for will totally let you see through Cindy's clothes in homeroom.

I looked at the artist renderings. I can see the invisible skyscraper. Does that mean I have super powers ?

They aren't saying it will be invisible, but that from the ground it will appear to. . .wait wait, right, internet. . .

Needs more Vespene gas.

Ho Lee Fuk that is an excellent point.

There isn't enough vespene gas in the world to build that thing.  Way too many additional pylons.

They may not find the rubble, but they will find the passport.
 
2013-09-10 10:57:58 AM  
So will everything in it be invisible? Because Wonder Woman's jet fails on that point.

Even if it is invisible, it will still cast a Shadow.

Well, they haven't built it yet. They require more minerals.

Invisible skyscraper, huh? Will they be getting a team of LOLcats to build it or something?
 
2013-09-10 11:28:49 AM  
It lacks Samsung, Hyundai, or LG written in giant letters up the side, I don't know how it got permits.

FTA: "Using optical illusions and lighting, the tower will appear to disappear into the sky, making it a less obtrusive anti-tower."

So .... "anti-tower" means "tower that is hard to see" in Korean English?

In that case, what's an anti-ninja?

You know, she appears to be manipulating some kind of a device between her legs.  Can we have a close up view of this, to determine what is really happening?  Because some youth may imagine she is using a vibrator with a bicycle handle on it and begin to masturbate, and we wouldn't want that, would we?

 it will serve as an iconic landmark

An invisible landmark. "You aren't here."

No, exhibitionism isn't her kink, it's bondage.

Seoul is quite a drive -- about an hour or more -- from Incheon airport. It's not like this thing is going to be sticking up in any flight plan.

Presenting distance as driving time in Seoul as distance does not help people from flyover country in the US.

I'm pretty sure they pulled flight status from Sum Ting Wong, Wi Tu Low, and Ho Lee Fuk.

Dear Korean Tower Farkers,

This movie would like a word with you...

If you get a chance, see this one- it was FANTASTIC!
