Well, I feel like a fool. I honestly thought that the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur were still the tallest buildings on Earth. You know, the ones that are in that crappy movie Entrapment, where we get to gaze upon a few nice butt-shots of Catherine Zeta-Jones. I remember seeing that in the theater when I was rather young and getting a funny feeling in my pants… Just thought I’d share that bit of useless information. I have no shame!
Well, not only was I incorrect about the Petronas Towers, but they’re not even on this list. Apparently, they held the honor from 1998 until 2004 when Taipei 101 (now number five) was completed and snatched the title.
