    The tower of Pisa has required a ton of work through the 750 years but I wouldn`t call it a fail. It generates hundreds of millions of tourism dollars per year.

    The lighthouse lasted 1500 years before falling.

    How is that a design flaw?

    The Lighthouse of Alexandria can hardly be considered a failure. It outlasted the civilization that built it by over 1000 years. How many lighthouses have you built and how long have they stood?

    You`re a pathetic excuse for life. What would the exact flaw be in your simple little brain?

    The tower of Pisa still stands and is the only thing in Pisa tourists flock to see. It`s known all over the world and has billions of photographs of it. I wouldn`t call it that much of a fail.

    Many times on IAB I have sighed and wondered about the intelligence of posters, but you sir,
    I havent sighed, or wondered at all
    straight out dumb stupid non thinking comment
    You DO know this is a mainly US site?
    and many folk on here have personal aches about that?
    do the decent thing if you are manly enough -apologise, if you aren`t manly enough, and lack the testicular fortitude to do such a thing, I suggest go away and grow some - may take time mind after that post, yours Fred

    @Beternal, `Merica! How dare you, you are so wrong! That was not a structural flaw in one of our great buildings, it was a controlled demolition.
