Somebody bought the Bavarium Sea Heist DLC.
Looks like the Loochador to me.
it is watercraft wednesday my dude
I really want one. Too bad I'm broke as fuck
You could theoretically pick up an Icon A5 which is commercially available and very similar.
This is the Wat Samphran Temple in Khlong Mai, Thailand.
While many awed visitors have expressed admiration for this impressive work of architecture, details such as when it was built, who designed it, or why this 17-story tower is in the clutches of a massive, beautiful dragon are nowhere to be found. The Wat Samphran Temple is rarely featured in guidebooks and is considerably removed from the typical tourist track. Travelers who've happened upon the temple in their journeys have described an interior in mild disrepair but filled with stunning statues and shrines, including a giant bronze Buddha. The dragon itself is reportedly hollow, and visitors are able to walk through some sections of it, however other parts of the temple remain closed to the public.
The fact that there isn't a slide in the dragon is depressing.
Imagine the people checking in to stay here. The host walks you up to your room and it’s beautiful, you look out the window and it is entirely covered by a dragons cock.
Maybe there is, that's part of the off limits section. Only the monks have trained to experience the divine joy of the dragon slide, and hold the heavy burden of this secret as the world would destroy itself if the secret were known.

Wat Phra Dhammakaya is a colossal 1,000 acre Buddhist temple in Thailand.
A common criticism of Dhammakaya has to do with its sheer size and massive following. The temple is famous for its grand ceremonies featuring attendance in the hundreds of thousands to sometimes over a million people. An impressive feat considering the temple is less than 50 years old and started with just a few thousands followers.
An shows this temple is the tits
I like to imagine that all of those tiny statues are prizes for participants, like souvenirs. "I went to Wat Phra Dhammakaya and all I got was this lousy Gautama."
This sect teaches that heaven is obtained by giving donations. This most definitely not real buddhism anymore than the donation seeking televangelusts are. Sad to see so many people putting their hopes on such nonsense.
Praise the Sun-like orb thing ! \[T]/
Cruceta del Vigía (English: The Watchman Cross) is a 100-foot-tall cross located atop Vigia Hill in Ponce, Puerto Rico. It houses a tourist center at its base, a ten-storey vertical tower, and a horizontal sky bridge that has panoramic views of Ponce and the Caribbean Sea.

China's cities are full of interesting buildings of all shapes and sizes, but Zaha Hadid's Leeza Soho tower in Beijing, must rate among one of the more interesting skyscrapers you'll see in a while.
Rising to a height of 207 m (679 ft), the Leeza Soho tower's interior will be split into two equal halves and joined by the world's tallest atrium, which twists dramatically. The project will also include an energy-efficient curtain wall with natural ventilation, in addition to rainwater collection and a grey water system.
Construction on the tower has reached level 20 of 46 storeys, and is expected to hold the world record for the tallest atrium, a title currently held by Burj Al Arab in Dubai.
The Leeza Soho is expected to be completed in late 2018.
The renderings were done by a company called Mir
I think it's gorgeous. When I first saw concept pictures of this project, it was quite spectacular. It's essentially two towers leaning against each other, with the whole central space glazed in. Amazing views inside and outside.
China's cities are all starting to look like scenes from Blade Runner
This is beautiful. Modern skyscrapers are always hit and miss for me but I like this one a lot.
Those are some freaking dope renderings. Impressively realistic. Can’t wait to see the complete construction, but it will probably look just like these renderings!
hey /sub/powerwashingporn, stop salivating
Put the dumpsters next to the exhausts, I'm sure they spit bodies out.
it looks like a battleship
Did the architect draw inspiration from distopian sci fi movies?
It is but you have to fight your way to the top to prove your worth.
I used to live down the block from this building. Google Maps once mistakenly labelled it as a taekwondo center and I was super stoked.
Here's more info I found about this place
They called it Project X. It was an unusually audacious, highly sensitive assignment: to build a massive skyscraper, capable of withstanding an atomic blast, in the middle of New York City. It would have no windows, 29 floors with three basement levels, and enough food to last 1,500 people two weeks in the event of a catastrophe.
But the building’s primary purpose would not be to protect humans from toxic radiation amid nuclear war. Rather, the fortified skyscraper would safeguard powerful computers, cables, and switchboards. It would house one of the most important telecommunications hubs in the United States — the world’s largest center for processing long-distance phone calls, operated by the New York Telephone Company, a subsidiary of AT&T.
The building was designed by the architectural firm John Carl Warnecke & Associates, whose grand vision was to create a communication nerve center like a “20th century fortress, with spears and arrows replaced by protons and neutrons laying quiet siege to an army of machines within."
Construction began in 1969, and by 1974, the skyscraper was completed. Today, it can be found in the heart of lower Manhattan at 33 Thomas Street, a vast gray tower of concrete and granite that soars 550 feet into the New York skyline. The brutalist structure, still used by AT&T and, according to the New York Department of Finance, owned by the company, is like no other in the vicinity. Unlike the many neighboring residential and office buildings, it is impossible to get a glimpse inside 33 Thomas Street. True to the designers’ original plans, there are no windows and the building is not illuminated. At night it becomes a giant shadow, blending into the darkness, its large square vents emitting a distinct, dull hum that is frequently drowned out by the sound of passing traffic and wailing sirens.
For many New Yorkers, 33 Thomas Street — known as the “Long Lines Building” — has been a source of mystery for years. It has been labeled one of the city’s weirdest and most iconic skyscrapers, but little information has ever been published about its purpose.
It is not uncommon to keep the public in the dark about a site containing vital telecommunications equipment. But 33 Thomas Street is different: Investigations by several journalists indicates that the skyscraper is more than a mere nerve center for long-distance phone calls. It also appears to be one of the most important National Security Agency surveillance sites on U.S. soil — a covert monitoring hub that is used to tap into phone calls, faxes, and internet data.
So it's used by telecommunications companies? It really is evil.

in peru we have same type of car6avan but full of coca leaves or coca paste or cocaine
Up and up we marched, until we could no more and then some.
Our backs were not spared by the heavy baskets we carried up and down the red slopes. Sometimes one of us was the lucky one and got to carry the light materials, but most of the time we all carried the same backbreaking, soul-crushing weight.
None of us knew why we were carrying these things – we speculated when we were on our short breaks, but there wasn’t a single soul that knew the true purpose. As time passed, it started to gnaw at us. We gave our lives, our good health for this project, and the maker didn’t even think it important enough to tell us what for.
On the particularly heavy days, we would sing about it. Our voices carried through the magnificent but deadly mountains, its echoes bouncing off the rocks back into our ears. One person would start (it was never clear who it was), the rest followed suit. Soon enough, the rhyme became our routine.
Until my back gives out I carry this basket, until my body can do no more,
How unsightly of a day it will be when they put my broken body in a casket
One would start with his own complaint, the rest would follow with the rhyme.
Up the hill, up the hill
Our master’s request we shall fulfill
Nobody would admit it, but the power of thousands of voices singing along in their proud misery gave each of us goosebumps.
Don’t trip, get up, don’t fall
Grab another basket, lest you be a burden to us all
Eight years we have been walking up and down the snaking hills, handing our materials to the builders. They looked even more miserable than we did. We never spoke.
At the end of it all, we found out what we were carrying for:
A giant factory for heavy equipment.
And so, as the equipment was fabricated, we marched on to bring it up and down these hills.
Wait is this real? That looks anazing
