Strange Buildings in Wenshan 文山


A lot of buildings in our neighborhood are like this - tall and incredibly skinny. I wonder what's going to keep this one up in the next big earthquake?! Notice the powerline? That was a concern for my wife. She said that it will influence our bodily functions, our chi and that sort of thing. Having grown up next to a series of powerlines, I found this line a bit dubious. When I told her so, she replied: "Now I know why you're so retarded."

Your apt. looks tall and skinny too. It's a lot closer to the university, right?

Yes. The floor of our skinny apartment was ruptured after the last big earthquake.
