Hello, everyone! We got too much traffic, so it keeps shutting down, and then reappearing in few minutes. Sorry for that, we might need to change our provider in the near future.

I remember seeing some of these in an email my dad got. They`re so amazingly cool, it impresses me what people are willing to come up with, with enough dedication and intelligence.
It makes me slightly more hopeful for the future. (:
I would live in that library in number six. It`s absolutely beautiful.
Chapel rock in number eleven is sick. I would actually look forward to going to church on Sunday if that was the building.
OMG! Someone graffitied on the dividing by zero house?! How dare thee!

#29 container city isn`t a weird building. That is just a mini redneck colony. Here is a fully developed redneck settlement.

I`ve been inside that sky scraper building in the background behind the egg. I was on a feild trip to albany and that whole plaza is pretty cool
its connected to the capital building, that tower and a museum with this big underground tunnel.

The Ripley`s building they chose isn`t as strange as some of the Ripley`s buildings I`ve been to.

I`m also surprised that Spaceship Earth at Walt Disney World`s EPCOT wasn`t mentioned, nor The Smallest House In Great Britain.

I`ve seen Wonderworks in Orlando, same style building though.

And number 15 in Manchester, I live in Manchester and that building is commonly known as "the filing cabinet".

I said it during the Olympics this year, and I`ll say it again now--that Beijing Olympic Stadium looks like a gigantic toilet seat. If you don`t believe me, check out some overhead shots.

Great list, but they missed the EMP (Experience Music Project) in Seattle. I`m not saying I particularly like it, but it definitely out-weirds most of the stuff on the list by a pretty wide margin.

If you click the Continue to part to and see number 6... that was at burning man `07 and the outside doesn`t do it justice. Inside everything is true to that style from the books on the shelves to the furniture. There is an elevator inside and a balcony on the roof that overlooked the black rock playa. My friend that went there with me and I still try to describe it to people.

23. Ryugyong Hotel (Pyongyang, North Korea)

I lost interest there. There`s nothing incredible about that building. It was created by starving North Koreans under poor safety regulations. An average of 1 person died per day during its year-long construction. And the resulting structure is not even complete or open. What is built isn`t even structurally sound.

It`s 150 stories of waste, and it stands as proof of Kim Jong-Il`s despicability and his oppressive rule in his egomaniacal father`s name.
