BTW - Wiki search stinks!

I searched "Alabama - four - buildings" and came up with garbage. I searched for "Heaviest Corner on Earth" and found the Wiki page. Alabama, four and buildings are listed in the first two sentences!!!!!!!!!!!

LOL Jeekinz, I didn't see that you snuck the answer in right before my last post went in! I came across it by accident (looked up "heaviest"): http://www.bhamwiki.com/wiki/index.p...orner_on_Earth

Give us a good one!

Are we talking about the first building or the other three behind it?

Are they apartments?

Is the weirdness in the construction materials?

It's a series of buildings with one name.

Apartments? Yes.

Materials? No.

That's it.

When they give traffic reports they say "Outbound traffic is slowing down under the apartments....."
