One of the driest channels on YouTube belongs to a weird history buff named Tom Scott. He travels the world to tell the stories of weird science and history. This week, he's landed in Wichita Falls to explain (in his best effort) the "Littlest Skyscraper In Texas."

Long before it meant $100k lifted trucks and inshore 'Salt Life' stickers, oil booms meant the development of real estate. Gaining grounds not only in the oil patch, but staking a claim in a convenient urban area and putting down bricks. The biggest problem though is, back in this day, you couldn't just pop across the state or country to see how your investment dollars are being spent. One had to just rely on trusting your partners. Imagine rolling up to your skyscraper and seeing four stories of unusable space. I recon this probably should have ended in the street at high noon.
