I've posted before about the Giant Scary Empty Korean Hotel, but I'll post about it again

Your daily dose of creepy and odd: When I saw a link this morning about "the ghost towers of Bangkok," I was reminded of the unfinished 105-story-tall pyramidal Ryugyong Hotel in Pyongyang, North Korea. There is a photo and a video at that link.

This is its Wikipedia page. Here's another article on it. (I quote: "The hotel, which was once found on city maps before the construction even began, has now been completely stricken from the official maps. Tour guides usually claim not to know where it is.") And someone made a Google Earth 3D model of the thing.

If only North Korea allowed film crews. That structure screams to be used as a location in a science fiction film.
