I doubt it but others don't... Maybe because of the name the Chinese gave it?
According to Fushun's Urban Construction Bureau, the "Ring of Life" means "a round sky and a path leading to a paradise in heaven."
It's made of an astounding 3,000 tons of steel and it will glow at night—decorated with 12,000 LED lights. According to Fushun Municipal
Government's officials, this titanic structure does absolutely nothing except serve as an elevated sighting position. They claim it is pretty
"landscape architecture"—like the Eiffel Tower. It uses four elevators to take people to the top.
Yeah, Yeah I know Dutchsense...blah, blah, blah...But watch the vid for the other take on it:
Who knows? Maybe Dutchy is onto something?
And another person thinks the same:
Here we have a more serious take on it:
And what do the Chinese officials have to say about it?
The city's defense: "there's not enough people to build entertainment, so we just build something pretty, OK?! ARE WE COOL NOW!". Or something
like that. They also claimed that they don't have enough citizens to build other more useful buildings. They have all the hospitals, recreation
centers and municipal buildings they need, so they probably decided to blow their excess budget in this thing
Never thought about something useful like, oh I don't know...feeding the hungry? Nah, silly.
But then again, I'm not in China.
So, the only question I have is where are the 4 elevators being placed?

I think it's cool and is something to get people talking a star gate come on we might be close but the Chinese. I think the Chinese are smart but I
also think we have the technology. I also think we are not as broke as the government says. That's why it's not a priority for them but it's my
opinion. Peace out
Why would they compare this to the Eiffel Tower? The St. Louis Gateway Arch is more appropriate. After seeing the picture, it made me remember a dream
I used to have as a young child about riding the elevators to the top of the Arch before I even heard or knew about the Arch muchless it actually
After reading my own post I thought of a conspiracy. The St. Louis Arch is the gateway to the West and was conceived of around the time America became
a world power. Is this the new gateway to the east hailing the arrival of china as the new dominant world power?
