Okay, yes, you’re both having an ego contest over which building is ‘taller‘. Chicago says the Willis tower is ‘taller’ because it’s all about the floors duuude a building is only as tall as the places where people can safely walk around maaaaan. New York City is saying One World Trade Center is saying that it has the taller building because the structure as a whole is taller than Willis tower. And everyone outside of NYC and Chicago does not give a fuck.
There’s nothing wrong with liking your city, there’s nothing wrong with poking fun at rival teams or other towns when your sports club does better than them, hell there’s nothing wrong with arguing which city has a better arts/food/music/whatever scene. But this? This stupid argument about skyscrapers? Folks, you’re having a dick measuring contest without breaking any laws by just whipping it out and measuring length, width and girth. “It’s not about the size, but how much you can use!” “It’s not about how much you can use, but the size!” Come on, NYC, Chicago, just admit that you want to see each other naked already and have sex. We’ve been watching you preen for each other for decades now, just fuck and get it over with.
In the mean time, the rest of the country would like to be spared your mating dances, okay?
