a train of thought - lost

what I'd rather not think about

The North Tower was called 1 WTC, so the South Tower was called 2 WTC. 1 WTC was 417 metres high, and 2 WTC was two metres shorter. 1 WTC had an antenna on the roof and was completed in 1972, a year earlier than 2 WTC, which did not have an antenna. For a short while, 1 WTC was the tallest building in the world, until Chicago's 442-metre-high Sears Tower surpassed it in 1973. This was a bitter pill for 1 WTC to swallow but what is worse? To have briefly been the tallest building in the world or never to have been the tallest because the building next to you was always slightly taller.
