Glass Skyscraper Built In China With World's Tallest Manmade Waterfall Cascading From The Side At 108 Meters (354 Feet)

These are several shots and a video of a glass skyscraper built by the Guizhou Ludiya Property Management construction company in Guiyang, the capital city of Guizhou province in Southwest China. The skyscraper is home to the world's tallest entirely manmade waterfall, which spills over a ledge at a height of 108 meters (~354 feet). It's not running all the time though. Or hardly ever really. You see, the waterfall "requires 4 large pumps to lift the recycled water...before it cascades down the side of the huge building. It faced huge engineering challenges during construction and because of electricity costs, believed to be over $100 an hour, the waterfall is only in use for special occasions." AND for only around twenty minutes at a time. Regardless, the next time they do fire it up I have every intention of being the first person to ride down the falls on an inflatable alligator pool float. "You'll die." A TRUE HERO? "No, just die." I'm still not entirely against it.

Keep going for several more shots (including the green water pool at the bottom) and a video while I speculate if I just clog a sink in the bathroom of a skyscraper that's even taller if I didn't just personally create the world's tallest manmade waterfall.

Thanks to Ryan WL, who agrees humans have pretty much done everything now. Right? I saw we throw in the towel.
