Apparently some of the skyscrapers can move up to five feet, or meter and a half. I've heard about it before, and seen dreams about it - though in those dreams the highest floors were rocking like a ship in a high wind, so those dreams weren't pleasant and probably not even realistic.

Would you want to live in the highest floors of a skyscraper knowing this?

I'd do it

But... this, though?

I don't see the big deal
they are designed to do that

You can still get a motion sickness in them, not much different to sea sickness...

That will not give you motion sickness, you silly person.

Again, they are designed for that or else your building is going to have a very bad time.

I wouldn't want to live on the top floor of a skyscraper but that's mostly because of fires.

They actually do give some people motion sickness.

I saw an artictectural documentary about it


Nowadays it's countered by this huge weight on the top floor that shifts against it.

Maybe if you're the highest form of pussy.

From that I've read, a free hanging pendulum might help the stabilizing as well.

I wouldn't want to live that high up because I don't enjoy heights.

I don't fear heights, but if I was to live in a place of constant motion, I'd rather have a trailer or a boat where it feels most natural. Living in a ground bound structure that sways constantly would just give a strange feeling of living right next to a fault line.

Which is actually true for many skyscraper areas - they are often built very close to a fault line.

I have an insane fear of heights, but only when I'm exposed with no control.
Inside airplanes and buildings I'm fine.
The cube at Willis Tower almost froze me in my tracks. I broke out into a cold sweat and got dizzy.
Fun times...

Maybe sometimes before geotechnical engineering became a thing, but not anymore, you crazy person.

This. It's like bridges with a bounce. If it has no flexibility, you're kinda fxcked.

Well, take Tokyo for example. But they know quite well how to handle that.

Do you ever wonder why there aren't sky scrapers in Paris?

+ other stuff, of course, but that doesn't sound as cool.

and those goddamn frogs are super sensitive about their skyline

And racism.

Not everyone cares about those... "frogs"...

But then again, amphibians are among the most endangered group of species of the world.

I know that the frogs are some kind of political joke in the US and whatnot, but I am not from the US, and Europe has political messes of it's own.

Then my mind trailed to the actual frogs. What of it?

umm, it's more of a british saying
about how the french eat frogs
