This is way cool.  8)
The story here.

DUBLIN, Ireland, Oct. 13 (UPI) -- The rock band, U2, is teaming up with Irish property developers to build the tallest building in Ireland.

The “U2 Tower” includes a “pod” studio suspended from the building’s apex, as well as wind turbines and solar panels as part of a commitment to renewable energy.

U2 never ceases to amaze me. I think the United States should replace the statue of liberty with the statue of Bono.

I don't know if you saw the last episode of South Park, but Bono was on it. I laughed so hard tears came out of my eyes.

O Sebastian, spurning the assemblies of the wicked,You gathered the wise martyrs Who with you cast down the enemy; And standing worthily before the throne of God, You gladden those who cry to you:Glory to him who has strengthened you! Glory to him who has granted you a crown!

Here is  Bono on South Park. I will warn you there is some crude humor (as if you didn't expect that from south park)
