1 World Trade Center Now Open

I didn't know it was almost complete. Hell, I stared at the picture for a long time trying to eyeball if it was concept art or not. I'm also surprised it doesn't have flak guns mounted on top.

So, will the Jews try to blow up this tower too? Only time will tell.

That's a stupid name for it, but at least they didn't stick with "Freedom Tower."  Ugh.

Well, it is really just a gimmick based on the original numbering system. They just moved the number from the back to the front, so regardless it would still be WTC 1 or 1 WTC.

I did not realize it was so close to completion either until I went to NY in June and our plane flew around the tip of Manhattan almost as if to say, "Look what we done now!"

It looks like the proverbial Ivory Tower and is likely cursed. I expect Yaakov to blow it up next Yom Kippur at the latest and then issue a statement reading:

This is life, get over it. Wah wah wah.

I'm actually surprised it wasn't already open.  Tourists have been going there for a while now.

Abandon hope all ye who press enter here.

Science is what happens when preconception meets verification.

If you can't demonstrate it, then you shouldn't believe it.

Well, Islam does have a pretty horrid tradition of building holy centers on top of their conquests. However, its not like minarets are some magical Islam-only architecture. So, I can see why the image disturbs some people, but I think they're kind of silly for it.

Quote from: The Simpsons
Professor August: Look at that lighthouse. That's the ultimate expression of phallocentric technocracy violating Mother Sky.
Marge: I thought they were just tall so boats could see them.
Professor August: No Marge. Everything penis-shaped is bad.

Image isn't showing because you lazily hotlinked it, and more importantly, that was a terrible episode that blatantly contradicted a huge chunk of existing Simpsons canon.  You monster!

All true, still appropriate, though.

Make sure to stop by the gift shop to get your collapsing tower playset.

Yes they did. It is Freedom Tower. The address is 1 World Trade Center. Freedom Tower, lol. American's truly are the corniest and dumbest population on earth.

ONE World Trade Center

Sounds like some NWO shit.
Again, 1 World Trade Center is the address. Not its name. Its called Freedom Tower. For the land of the spied upon.

No, it's called the One World Trade Center.  "Freedom Tower" was simply an old name they used while it was under construction.
