Noted in Passing: If you lived here you’d be in prison now. . . (but you wouldn’t need a car)

    You can call a N—r a N—r in China and laugh at Trannies. Plus neither get to go anywhere near your kids. Errr… Kid. Although there will be more Kids now that the evil One Child Policy is history.

    We’re all Prisoners. Just some are in County, some in Super Max, and some are in Club Fed. Who is in which one is an open question and in the current climate not time-invariant.

    The thing about those high-rises is that every time someone flushes a toilet, you’re going to hear plumbing noises. Plus let’s hope nobody skimped on the rebar.

    They’ve built hell on earth.

      The Chinese have been building “Hell on earth” since 1949. One hundred million Chinese corpses provided the mortar.

        The atheist fools have out done the Babylonians with their towers.

    I recall the singing parrot from one of those odd cartoons posted a few days ago.
    “… be it ever so humble
    there’s nooooo place like home.”

    And I thought Soviet architecture was grim. This is fukn grim with pink on it.

    Makes a great jump to the death scene, I bet.

      I bet there’s a falling body out of one of those cells nearly every day.
      If I was forced to live there, one of them would eventually be mine.

        Imagine the smell of the cooking in that hell tower.

    Some folks actually like living is chicken battery cages. Not for me but I’ve often thought one building, tower towns surrounded by acres and acres of nothing but acres and acres might be interesting. First 3-5 floors, open sided pillar supported parking and utilities such as water plants wastewater treatment power plant, etc. . Next 10 or so stores, churches, bars theaters etc. Maybe a 5 or 15 floor business district, lawyers, doctors, brokers and such. All topped by residential floors.

    Not for me but many would be happy to own a condominium with all their needs just an elevator ride away.

    Whittier, Alaska leans kinda that way, population 272, almost all of whom live in a single building, the Begich Towers.

      I’ve had more than one piece of mail mis-delivered to Whittier, Alaska, and lost in delivery limbo for many days.

    Probably never quiet, like living in a prison.
