    But what if the towers are like trailer parks that you have to bring your personal trailer to and pay for the "lot fee" and the owners of the parks cut costs by using the scaffolding and not buying more land?

      don't mean to sound like a hater or anything but matpat forgot one thing global warming maybe that's why the buildings haven't collapsed there is no snow or strong enough wind who knows I certainly don't I'm only in 6th grade

        Another Citicorp Center fun fact is, the engineer found out the flaws when giving a lecture of calculating wind forces. A student asked how to calculate the wind force if the wind is blowing on the building at a diagonal. That's how the engineer realized this big mistake. (According to my lecturer of the building structure)

                  Overall, I don't think the living situation in the movie makes sense, period. How can we have all of this amazing technology (which I would imagine should cost thousands, if not 10's of thousands of dollars (remember, inflation). Yet, this main character lives in below-livable conditions. How can he afford all that tech yet not be able to afford to live better? How can we all of a sudden lose all these laws that govern safety? Last I checked, in the USA, we weren't allowed subject citizens to that kind of bullshit.

                  Unless, he lives in a concentration camp for illegal immigrants. That would make more sense.

                      The only problem with this is he used anything from the movie which if you read the book you know is trash

                                          personally i think they also factored in the price drop of lives lost, ppl die, less ppl to house, it is a distopia, although i may be giving an absolute devils advocate here

                                                                                              Isnt this addressed in the books? Like doesnt he mention that it isnt uncommon for stacks to collapse and for the bottom ones to get crushed? It was more about just outliving the poor situation than fixing it.

                                                                                              I'm all for theories where you nitpick tiny things and but you reference obscure mario titles and count pixels... So why ignore the book? The film already cut out crucial content so why waste more time talking about how stacks are dangerous and not up to code? We can see this by looking at them. They're freaking trailers on scaffolding.
