My post on another blog on the Fire and CCTV buildings, if it is not suitable to be here, please delete it.
======================================================================================

Elaine:

I am sending your post on the building fire to my friends in China and has got some responses.

Look at the first picture, the Chinese people who are looking at the fire are actually laughing and I am checking out more pictures on the fire sence, then I found more Chinese people watching the burning are laughing… the question is WHY …

The answer is ( maybe ) that the general public in China has been against these ugly, silly and nasty buildings from the very beginning, but the elites ( the same group who pushed for WTO, the same nasty group who are pushing for building more U.S. T-bills) , who are controlling the allocation of the resources, pushed these building in Beijing and Shanghai, Canton to be built.

Actually, ever since the design of the building of CCTV towels went public, many Chinese designers, professors have been adamentally against it… here is one link from a professor’s protest in Nanjing: His reason is that the building has three Antis:
反科学、反经济、反文化 1. Anti Science, Anti Economy and Anti Chinese Culture…

Yes, these crazy buildings all over the world, especially the ones built by these crazy, stupid, fat and lazy Arabia princes in the middle of desert, they are against all the human decency and commmonsense for the preservation of the humanity.

We are in this fight against these EVIL, PURE EVIL together…

THE MADNESS OF THE BUILDERS: CHINA TOWER BURNS
http://emsnews.wordpress.com/2009/02/09/the-madness-of-the-builders-china-tower-burns/#comment-8550

Every easy credit cycle sees some of the worst buildings built in the worst places and the worst possible way. For example, the crowning achievement of the 60’s boom was the decision to build a huge double tower complex in lower Manhattan. Rockerfeller controlled the State of NY and used government funds to build the WTC complex. I watched in total disgust, as this monster thing was built. I could see it had precious little internal support. Rather than being like a honeycomb, it was a pile of pancakes supported by slender steel exterior sheathes. It collapsed. Well, this cycle, even more unstable, ill-designed monstrosities are going up and just as fast, vanishing, the latest one is in China.

But it is not Chinese, it was designed by crazy European and American architects. These ‘master builders’ have gone totally insane and have been building increasingly bizarre, stupid and nearly impossible to repair structures of every possible sort, all of which are basically unstable, unsound or fire traps. The arrogance of the builders is painfully at odds with the power of Mother Nature, random terrorists or simple Time passing and things degrading from new to old.

...

In the present case, the stupid architects made the interior a chimney. They even thoughtfully left a ‘void’ at the top to be the exit area for any fire that needs more oxygen. The bottom of this huge fireplace is the front doors. Open them up and the air sucks into the atrium/chimney and roars through the void and into the sky! Bingo!

I advise the Chinese to punish whoever decided to OK this incredibly stupid design and of course, extradite the architects and if anyone died in this fire, charge them with murder. Somehow, we have to stop this madness. Building things that kill is evil. Below is another tower designed by these demonic idiotic architects:

...

What is this? A sly way of killing off all the Chinese people? Why are the Chinese falling for this? Death wishes? This tower makes the WTC look like stable architecture. This thing is beyond doomed, it screams to be kicked over. And if humans don’t do it, Mother Nature will.

Elaine:

I hope the Chinese leaders still read this bog! Someone ought to tell them, they should not only sue Mr. Ram Kolas but punish him, too. He. Send him to China for some Chinese discipline. Maybe, just maybe, this will put the Fear of God or rather, The Dragon, into the heads of the crazy architects.
====================================================================
Isha:


Yes, the calls for the hanging of the Designer were in China as early as 2003!!!
My fear for China is that these ” Master Builders” are bribing their way to the power structure in China, as they has been doing here for quite a while … but, you know what, Chinese “Change” can be quick, after all, the first book in China has always been ” the BOOK OF CHANGE” ( I-Ching ) and it is not a champignon slogan.

Isha:

Thanks, Elaine, for the advice. The most appropriate sentence for the designer and ” whoever oked the design” is death by stoning, as it is written in the first human law ( somewhere in the ancient Middle East ). I will keep my ears on the ground for the coming punishment in China and keep the bloggers here posted….

Not only is the building unstable, it is ugly as hell.
Comment by endogamy — February 10, 2009 #

You are right, not only they are ugly, expensive to build and maintain, they are designed to make a statement, to make a insult, I am just proving to you, contrary to Elaine’s constant assertion of sly 50 years’ plan ..), that how stupid these Chinese decision makers can be: spending hard earned money to insult their own people, their own culture …

If ever, if ever, this very expensive fire could wake Chinese people up on our own stupidity and prevent more grand stupidity from happening in the future, well, it worth the money (tuition to be paid) and the Year of Ox could still be bullish for China …
