This is an example of 'a person who as a lot of time on their hands' at its best. It's a joke, and so is the person who came up with this. I mean, who in their right mind would look at this and take it seriously.

I could photoshop some monstrosity into a skyline picture and make a thread out of that.

Which is probably pretty close to what happened here.

Who in their right mind would come up with something like that in the first place is a better question.

I knew about this one before, and I read that it was 600m tall.

Strange

But that doesn't matter, it's still realy ugly
