No, I didn't refer to you at all.

I was referring to Chizip's first post and I didn't mean it as a jab at him, just expressing my opinion that's all.

i'm sorry, but people from the united states should know what the arch is. like it says in my fun facts, it is the tallest national monument in the United States and 4th most-visited tourist attraction in the world. it's like not knowing what the golden gate bridge or the statue of liberty is

i do think the arch is beautiful. the design is gorgeous. plus, i think it's cool that nevada and the arch share the same birthday.

Its the Mighty Mississippi, bg.

If you stand under the Arch and look across the river, its Illinois.

What are the top 3?

That's just craziness that it's the 4th most visited.

I was in the arch once. My overwhelming fear of heights didn't let me enjoy it though.

It is lovely to look at.

moby had this to say about the arch in his website journal

Quote:
We're in St Louis with a night off, and luckily we're staying right by the gateway arch which is one of my favourite structures in the whole world. I might go and take a little stroll to see it bathed in moonlight in all of its splendor. The gateway arch was designed by Eero Saarinen, who was one of the most remarkable architects of the 20th century. It's almost worth a trip to St Louis just to see this amazing sculpture/structure/building...what a phenomenal thing...

The first time that I saw it I actually got a little bit teary-eyed 'cos it's so beautiful, and it looks like it shouldn't exist. Or it looks as if it fell from space millions of years ago and the United States was built around it. Too bad that's not true.
and moby is always right

Happy Birthday Arch

When I was younger I thought every city had their own Arch - I still think a skyline looks a little strange without one

I might need to go down and stand at the base - look up - and get dizzy today to wish Arch Happy Birthday

What did Chizip say about idiots?

I just thought that was common "I am an American" knowledge that the Mighty Mississippi and the Arch/St. Louis went hand in hand.





Disclaimer for interferencers who have not read the FAQs: bg84 KNOWS I am joking using the term idiot within a few inches of her her username.

Happy birthday to one of the most beautiful monuments in the world. I love the Arch but you couldn't pay me to go up to the top. I'm to much of a chicken shit for that. If that thing started to sway while I was up there I think I would freak. Props to the folks that can handle it, i'm just not one of them i'm afraid.
