Ever wondered how tall the tallest building ever designed is ?Before you try let me remind you the tallest building in world at present is the Burj Dubai(still under construction ) at 1,680 ft and will be 2,275ft when finished.
Well, The largest building ever to be envisioned and designed fully is X-Seed 4000 .The X-seed 4000 is 13,123 ft (4 km) tall steel construction of 800 floors with a 6km base, the building was designed to be built in water in the Tokyo bay.Beating even the tallest structures dozens of radio and television broadcasting towers which measure over 2,000 ft.

Roughly based on the japan mount Fuji's structure ,this building would house somewhere from half a million to a million people. The X-Seed 4000 would cost about $ 300-900 billions US.

Being designed by Taisei constructions as an " Intelligent building" the X-SEED 4000 would maintain light temperature and air pressure in response to changing extreme weather condition.

Really wonder if this building will ever be made?

Rave Reviews For Chak De India

Yesterday, i was just going through reviews of Chak De India.

I noticed This movie *ing Shah Rukh Khan and directed by Shimit Amin of Ab Thak Chapan fame got some really rave reviews .

HidustanTimes.com - *** 1/2.

Indiaglitz.com -****.

ExpressIndia.com - ***1/2.

Bollywood.com --***1/2.

Of all the reviews i read one which really kept me wondering was the review by Rajeev Masand of CNN-IBN in Buzz18.com. I was really really surprised to see a 4 on 5 (very good) rating by him. There was also a article Chak De :Shah Rukh's best movie ever ? in Buzz18.com .

Seems like the movie is a hit with the critics now we have to see how it does at the box-office?
The advance booking and the start was poor very unlike previous films in SRK -Yash Raj combination, but the reports are positive.
