The (slightly less) leaning tower of pisa

not quite sure if this is due to human involvement or the foundation shifting, but the tower sure as heck is leveling off.

    Definitely human involvement. They have HUGE blocks of lead resting on the opposite side, and they also under-excavated it to help reduce the lean.


    Yep, humans. But please note that the building used as a reference point in this picture isn’t exactly on firm ground either.

    Those stairs are hell to walk. With a combination of the hollowed-out steps of the stairs and the lean of the tower you feel like a sweaty drunk climbing up there.


    Pretty much everything is the area is off-kilter. There are actually five towers in Piza and they all lean.

    “On January 7, 1990, after over two decades of stabilization studies, the tower was closed to the public. The bells were removed to relieve some weight, and cables were cinched around the third level and anchored several hundred metres away. Apartments and houses in the path of the tower were vacated for safety. The final solution to prevent the collapse of the tower was to slightly straighten the tower to a safer angle, by removing 38 cubic metres (50 cu yd) of soil from underneath the raised end. The tower was straightened by 18 inches (45 centimetres), returning to its 1838 position. After a decade of corrective reconstruction and stabilization efforts, the tower was reopened to the public on December 15, 2001, and was declared stable for at least another 300 years.”


    I can’t see what you guys are talking about.


    less masturbation is the key


    They look the same to me as well TGGeko. And is that a bird, the SAME bird under the window farthest on the right on the second floor of the building in the foreground? That’s a long time to hang around a window.


    noticed the people? the shades? even better, noticed that the handrail is different?


    It’s not a bird, it’s something else that is stationary.


    Are there any actual photos of the inside of the tower? The central atrium is blocked off from view by a huge curtain. I remember walking the stairs, but I also vaguely remember having to leave my camera in a locker before going into the tower (and that’s why I have no photos from inside or on the top of it). Either that or I was severely high.


    it hasnt moved
