Titanium Balls

Not So Shiny Today.
I went here when i was a kid. Its officially known as the Atomium, but my friends and I called it the "Titanium Balls". That name was funny because it had the word "balls" in it. It was even funnier when you considered the building was situated next to "Mini Urine". Until I found it's official site on the internet I thought I imagined it's existence. I think it was built for an Expo, or a world's fair or are they one and the same thing? Actually, from memory they are, anyway some pretty crazy stuff was built for those shows. In fact, if you are like myself and not familiar with this concept, i suggest its best not trying to take it all in at once, its pretty mind blowing.
Perth should try and host one some day. I mean, Brisbane has done it.
