In 100 years, the conversations in downtown Shanghai will go something like this:

Shanghain: "We have more buildings over 80 floors than any city in the world!"

Visitor: "But the tallest building I see is only 40 floors."

Shanghain: "Yes...well, let me explain where the other 40 floors are."


Visitor: "38th floor please"

Shanghai Elevator Operator: "Did you want to go to skyside 38, or to dirtside 38?"


Street Vendor: "Get'cher subterranean mud-suits here for floors minus-1 through minus-40!"
