At the edge of the business district of downtown Vancouver. It has sat there for a few years now, not even half finished:

Rather ironically, behind the red SUV in the last picture is a poster-ad for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas!

Damn, looks like a Homestead waiting to happen. How does Canada feel about homesteading?

You're not really all that thrilled with Vancouver (or Kanada, in general), are you Brett? biggrin.gif
Jack Batemaster
Um, who is?
Absomphe
Too many Vancouverites.

Me? Um, no I don't.

I love Vancouver. Or at least most parts of it. Most of Canada's not too bad, except for Toronto. Its more the government at various levels that I'm not too pleased with. harhar.gif

The problem with Vancouver is not too many Vancouverites, its too many clueless nutjobs from the suburbs and too many tourists. (I may be from the 'burbs, but at least I look like I know what I'm doing!) abs-cheers.gif

I should add I find the unfinished building particularly funny because our ever so graceful premier keeps talking about how the province is growing and our economy is booming, yet here's this dilapitated structure in the business district of the biggest city in the province. Its not even in the slums.

And America, you should be ashamed of yourselves for letting our premier off with a slap on the wrist! w00t2.gif

We should have bombed the fucker back to the stone age, along with all you Canuckyfuckylandians.

Turn it into a Airsoft venue. Playing in a, i assume, warehouse like that would own!

Paintball.
MarKoPoLo
Airsoft owns paintball.
Brett
I'm not sure its a warehouse. Not quite sure what it was intended to be, or what it will become. (Apparently, it has been purchased.)
MarKoPoLo
The Airsoft venue in my home town was made to look like your in an office. If it was an office, all the better!
traineraz
I don't see any decay there. It looks pretty solid, just unfinished.

Kinda purty, if ya ask me.

Which ya didn't.





Fuck you.
Brett
Well really, I didn't ASK anyobody anything.
MarKoPoLo
SNOB!!
merde!
I love mentioning this when the america/canada arguments break out: The War Of 1812

for reference, I have no real preference over either of you.

Fun song:

The War Of 1812
by the Arrogant Worms


Oh, come back, proud Canadians
To before you had TV,
No hockey night in Canada,
There was no CBC (Oh, my God!).
In 1812, Madison was mad,
He was the president, you know
He thought he’d tell the British where they ought to go
He thought he’d invade Canada,
He thought that he was tough
Instead we went to Washington....
And burned down all his stuff!

And the White House burned, burned, burned,
And we’re the one’s that did it!
It burned, burned, burned,
While the president ran and cried.
It burned, burned, burned,
And things were very historical.
And the Americans ran and cried like a bunch of little babies
Waa waa waah!
In the War of 1812!

US hillbillies from Kentucky,
Dressed in green and red,
Left home to fight in Canada,
But they returned home dead
It’s the only war the Yankees lost, except for Vietnam
And also the Alamo... and the Bay of... ham.
The loser was America,
The winner was ourselves,
So join right in and gloat about the War of 1812

And the White House burned, burned, burned,
And we’re the one’s that did it!
It burned, burned, burned,
While the president ran and cried.
It burned, burned, burned,
And things were very historical.
And the Americans ran and cried like a bunch of little babies
Waa waa waah!
In the War of 1812!

In 1812, we were just sittin’ around,
Mindin’ our own business, puttin’ crops into the ground.
We heard the soldiers coming and we didn’t like that sound.
So we took a boat to Washington and burned it to the ground.

Oh... we... fired our guns, but the Yankees kept-a coming,
There wasn’t quite as many as there was a while ago.
We fired once more and the Yankees started running,
Down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico, oh, oh....
They ran through the snow and they ran through the forest,
They ran through the bushes where the beavers wouldn’t go.
They ran so fast, they forgot to take their culture,
Back to America, and Gulf and Texaco

So, if you go to Washington, its buildings clean and nice,
Bring a pack of matches, and we’ll burn the White House twice!

And the White House burned, burned, burned,
But the Americans won’t admit it
It burned, burned, burned,
It burned and burned and burned
It burned, burned, burned,
Now, I bet that made them mad
And the Americans ran and cried like a bunch of little babies
Waa waa waah!
In the War of 1812!
