    "We are at a global inflection point. Half the world's population is now urban -- and half the world's most global cities are Asian."

    " Just as more people will continue to migrate from farms to cities, more global clout will move from West to East."

    I love these rankings, although I don't even recognize one of the cities (the very last one on the list... I know it's in China, but I've never heard of it before... I guess that definitely symbolizes something). Cool pictures though, and the San Fran entry is really gay-centric.

    You have heard of it.. "Chung King".. you just never saw it spelled correctly. How the hell did Lagos make the list?
