Wow! Hamilton nailed Las Vegas!

Handy having a Brewery on top of your apartment building. I wonder if they have beer on tap?

Malls are heading this way already. There's already a pre-school and a college in the one I go to, and there's word that hotels will follow. Can apartments be far behind?

What could be more tantalizing to investors than a city where you cannot escape consumerism?

Hmm. The bank is rather a long way from most of the shops, someone built a school near the beer garden, and entering the police station from the outside appears to involve climbing onto the roof of the congressional building. So in urban planning terms it's quite believable.

Wow, that's actually pretty good. A lot of Chinese and Indian cities look just like it.

The only thing Hamilton has super-wrong is the museum with a poster of what is presumably supposed to be an exceptionally fat person outside it - weighing 350lbs. Sheesh, you'd have to double that at least before anyone would raise an eyebrow in 2007. Probably triple it. Especially in Las Vegas.

Yet travel by horse & buggy is still the norm?

Yet travel by horse & buggy is still the norm?
Well, what with Peak Oil and all, horse & buggy, coupled with electric trams and coal-powered trains and hypertight cities might be in our not so far future...

I wish this future would have happened. :(

I like how the Stock Exchange looks like a sewer culvert.

Get this thing airborne, and it looks like it came from a Miyazaki fantasy film.
