“My Paradise - so near!”


General Culture

I don’t know what exactly it is that makes this so particularly weird. Is it the fact that you would normally expect to find something like this in Japan? Or is it the fact that even though it looks like a joke it’s real? Or is it the fact that that’s what’s left of one of the biggest business scams in living German memory (They got millions from investors to build what they called “cargolifters” - gigantic Zeppelins to transport containers, and when they went under all that was left was this huge dome)? Or is it that when you look at the photos you ask yourself “where are those guests they’re talking about”?
