I have to confess, the first thing I was reminded of was Humphrey Bogart & David Niven’s drunken plan to write to selected offices in skyscrapers asking them to leave their lights on overnight, thus spelling FUCK on the side of the building.

“Got any ideas for the design of the new skyscraper?”

“All I’ve got is this old issue of Fantastic Four where some dimensional whatsit in the Baxter Building starts malfunctioning.”

“I love it!”

Hm, I can imagen that this will get kinda tedious for everybody else in the city if they do it all night every night.
The tallest building in my city looks only like Minas Morgul at night ( https://origin.img.fotocommunity.com/commerzbank-tower-85204029-474d-4697-9cce-d6380b536b67.jpg?height=1080 ), and even that is annoying to some people.

mmmm, just what the world needs. more headlines and column inches dedicated to lite-up phallic monuments to wealth inequality. Wake me up when they figure out how to make radiators work all winter in poor neighborhoods.
