Pedantic Height[edit]

I just been to the tower, and on the top most floor they say it's anywhere between 279 and 281. There's a scale there along those numbers. I believe this figure of 273 on wikipedia means the floor right below it, which is covered by windows. Anyone knows what's the correct figure? Should we fix it? --Caue (T | C) 03:03, Thursday 2013-03-21 (UTC) yes we should!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Omitted Facts[edit]

I have seen somewhere that Eiffel intended that the structure be dismantled after 30 years. The painting maintenance after that time would be prohibitive. The list of towers taller than the Eiffel is way off the factual mark. See the Wiki article List of tallest structures in the world. There is even an oil rig in the Gulf Of Mexico that is taller than the Eiffel. There are many taller radio towers. (Erecting such towers does not require much funding nor do they require any significant engineering skill.) (talk)
