The only problem with their buildings… they have to leave a gap on every floor to keep the whole thing from collapsing!

    In an interview with the main architect
    "Yes, we got the concept from a russian building company, and we even tried to get their sistem to get workers doing better jobs than usual, but we found a problem… anybody knows a damn song called Type A or Type B?! Wait… man, don't put that L brick, I said (line completed tune) OH FOR THE LOVE OF…! (game over tune)

    Nedless to say that after the accident they lost the patent for the building design and a lot more of companies copyed it once and once again saying they were fresh building concepts.

    If Tetris blocks are the buildings, Bejewels are the sidewalks and roads.

    There appears to be some gaps in their plans

    This = Tetris
    Tetris = game
    game = fun
    fun = blocks
    blocks = tetris
    so pretty much…
    This = game
    Or otherwise..
    This = fun!!ㅑD

    I heard the american economy was built on a similar system.

  16. kirbyownsyou97 on July 3rd, 2009 2:57 pm

    i bet none of you can guess what the construction workers were listening to as they built this.

  17. KingHoboVI on July 3rd, 2009 3:48 pm

    NO! This submission will make millions of nerds everywhere believe they can build structures! THE HORROR!

  18. KingHoboVI on July 3rd, 2009 3:51 pm

    Also the workers will probably have drugs on site, such as plumbers's cocaine, architect's ecstasy and of course, builder's crack.

  19. Vabolo on July 3rd, 2009 2:31 pm

    I heard the american economy was built on a similar system. Except it's not falling blocks, it's falling stocks.
