Would You Stay in North Korea's Ryugyong Hotel?

Would You Want to Stay at the "Hotel of Doom"?

Located in North Korea's capital, Pyongyang, the Ryugyong Hotel is also known as The Hotel of Doom and The Phantom Hotel, since construction on the hotel had been abandoned for over 16 years. Recently, however, construction started again, and there are rumors that it may be finished by 2012. This three-sided pyramid was named "The Worst Building in the History of Mankind" by Esquire magazine, but don't let that description stop you. Tell me: if this building was ever finished, and if you ever had reason to travel to North Korea, would you stay in it?

Considering the fact that I would never go to North Korea, no.

Any one else think that they should put roller coasters on those down sweeps? I think a free fall from the top that stops and then tips over the side for a landing at the bottom would make this place a hell of a lot more fun.
