  • I liked it better after the fire when it was burnt and covered in soot. It still looks cool, but it was more fun when it was damaged.  more »
  • The building structure is unreasonable, in order to own stability, spend a lot of wronged money, is one for ingenuity. Beecher thoroughly under an absurd approval system, the demon Building. From the time of the building of a big fire, also confirmed from the other side of the world unprecedented, will not have the ugly buildings.
