…MrWong got carried away with the Soup’Partments?

Soup'Partments

MrWong’s Soup’Partments is an abandoned attempt to build the world’s tallest virtual building.

Abandoned doesn’t mean it was unsuccessful however, as I can’t imagine anyone ‘building’ anything higher than the Soup’Partments, with its 406 residents and 2,000 meters of height.

To help with the construction, MrWong opened the project to anyone with an image editor and some spare time. Users downloaded a template for either a one-story ‘apartment’ or a two-story ‘loft’ and went to work customizing it with anything that their heart desired. MrWong then checked I, and as long as it met with his approval, the story was added.

Since the project was closed down almost five years ago, not much has gone on in the Soup’Partments lately, but if you want a good look at some rather unique Internet history, there’s no better place to begin.

…Some news stories don’t need many words?

Here are two pictures that tell quite a tale:

Gibson And Boo Boo

The first is Gibson and Boo Boo, the world’s tallest and the world’s smallest dog, meeting for the first time in Sacramento, California for Guinness World Records Day, 2007. On his hind legs, Gibson stands at over 7 feet tall, while Boo Boo checks in at just 4.9 inches.

Banana Shoreline

The second is the shoreline of two Dutch North Sea islands after six containers of bananas fell off of a cargo ship during a storm and washed ashore. After the spill, the shoreline was bananas, B.A.N.A.N.A.S.
