MahaNakhon Tower is a luxury mixed-use skyscraper located in Bangkok, Thailand and was opened in late August 2016. Designed with a unique pixelated facade, it features the unconventional appearance of a glass curtain walled square tower with a cuboid-surfaced spiral cut into the side of the building. It has been recognized as the tallest building in Thailand at 314.2 m (1,031 ft), with 77 floors

NEW YORK—This year's New York International Auto Show was rather busy when it came to new car reveals. It was the North American debut for Jaguar's exciting I-Pace and Hyundai's Kona Electric electric vehicles. It saw the world premieres of the new Toyota Corolla and Nissan Altima, both of which should sell in their hundreds of thousands. Not to mention the new Audi RS5 Sportback, which almost certainly won't. But unusually for an auto show, the one thing that wasn't thick on the ground was the concept car.

However, the few that we did see were all rather exciting, each in its own way. Most were thinly veiled production cars, stalking horses for models soon to arrive in the showroom, like Lincoln's Aviator. But the most jaw-dropping was a machine unlikely to ever go into production, the Genesis Essentia.

What is impressive is that it shows how far Hyundai has come.

it hit right between the windows

failed "postal drone"? that's what they say. Maybe it's really a very accurate weapon guidance system they were testing.

Well, that depends on a lot of things.

If the intention was KILLING PEOPLE then running into a wall would not have been a good design. That drone (or at least the main body aside from the rotors) was small enough to fit through one of those windows, so conceivably some sort of a delayed fuse could have increased "yield".
OH, WAIT...I'm saying that with my "public voice"? Image

Cool, but not all that surprising, especially if this was a sick tree (though you can get tannic acid water pools in healthy trees as well). In this case, the tree filled up with water, which was infused with tannic acid, creating a reservoir which the lumberjack released.

There used to be a relatively famous tree in the park I camped in as a child that was well known for its tannic acid pool. It had originally been two trees, but the second trunk collapsed, leaving a gaping hole. Amazingly, rather than dying, the tree continued with its remaining trunk and a pool formed where the old trunk had been as the heartwood rotted away. It was probably 6-8 inches deep with stinky brown water like that. People believed it could be used to treat ailments.

Similar effect--or so I have heard--is when you cut into a tree that has a raccoon in there.
Maybe not as much liquid, but nasty.

Oh I wish they would make a 3d version of that! I would even go to a Phish concert to score some acid! (I've seen it at the theater before).

3D sounds like a good idea... if it could be done right. And they would also need to give it surround sound.

But wouldn't the acid solve those problems for you?

In my god forsaken country nobody ever had the... initiative, to screen old classic movies in a theater every now and then. The only thing I remember is once some Star Wars club arranged to show Episodes I through VI (all that existed back then) in one theatre, one day only.

More recently some theaters tried showing concerts and sports. Don't know if that worked for them but I never heard about it from anyone.

I'm surprised we still have movie theaters because of everything being expensive... but I digress...

2001, I like it, a lot, have seen it a few times, but I still think it's only for true sci-fi fans because it's loooong, and slooow...

I'm not a science fiction fan--it is one of the few Sci Fi movies I like. It ids just plain beautiful to look at.

Funny thing about the pace of movies is the ones that bother me are the more contemporary super kinetic ones-the jittery Lego Movie nearly made me walk out. Fight scenes in actio movies --especially the superhero ones irritate me.
I'm the same way with music. Techno/EDM/Speedmetal, etc don't appeal to me at all.
