Oh SH*T!!

After quite a bit of a hiatus, I'm back.  Refreshed, reloaded and ready to get this little bloggity blog back up and on track.  First up, have a look at the terrifying photo below.  Creative- 100%.  Enough to scare you every time you are using the ah..facilities, abso-fucking-lutely.

A Mexican penthouse, with a bathroom directly above a non-working, 15 story elevator shaft.  I don't know how anyone could get used to that, ever.  Imagine the sheer horror one would feel waking up after a night of binge-drinking and hugging the throne?  It would also be pretty funny sending your house guests in there for the first time, installing a hidden video camera would definitely be necessary.

And if that isn't crazy enough, check out The Aquaria Grande in Mumbai India.  A 37 story residential tower with swimming pools on each balcony.  Yes, you read that correctly.  I wouldn't want to be the guy who insures the glass surround, and I can bet there is absolutely no "cannon balling" allowed here.

Lastly, check out the Vertical Forest, which is currently being built in Milan, Italy. When completed, it will not only look incredibly stupid, but will also use so much steel and cement to support the weight of the trees that it will counter-balance the whole idea of "going green". 

Would you live in places like this?  My blood pressure is through the roof just thinking about swimming in those pools and trusting that the glass wouldn't crack while I was gracefully back-stroking my way around.
