I love it when big corporate entities get involved in building big buildings in downtown city centers. It always ends up becoming this big ol' phallic power trip on their part as they try to make their building more grandiose than the competition who've done something similar. Or in the case of Hyundai's recent report that they're looking to build a 110-story skyscraper in the heart of Seoul, South Korea — maybe it's something different. Now I know Hyundai's saying it'll be an "automobile theme tower" which will include the automaker's headquarters, convention center and a car museum — but I figure if North Korea's building nukes and aiming them at South Korea, maybe building a 110-story skyscraper that looks like a missile's just an attempt at an effective deterrent.
