jaytkay: The pictures of the workers are interesting.[newsinfo1000.files.wordpress.com image 629x393]
Mr. Lahey: If only there was a way to get a bird's eye view like that of any place in the world.
NotARocketScientist: How'd they get that car up to the top of the building?
Benza: @red5ish... who the fark took that photo?

Matthew Keene: What I'm waiting for is for Google to get some cool shots from the Twin Towers.
Vance Uppercut: At least gas prices are high for a reason.
StopLurkListen: So, it looks like a kilometer away is all bare land? Why is there a need to have such huge buildings (besides even the Burj Khalifa) in such a low population, low-density area?
SurelyShirley: I can very much appreciate the architecture, engineering and construction of this building, and would love to be able to go all the way to the top, but look at the surrounding area.

Alonjar: Damn my post got cut off. Was trying to post some pictures.[img845.imageshack.us image 850x394][imageshack.us image 850x566][imageshack.us image 850x565][www.fassinoimmobiliare.com image 800x606]This is the Dubai Marina, home to the "Tallest block in the world".

Rich people like boats.[azeemazeez.com image 850x566][www.mylucky9.com image 850x637]The "Infinite Tower", a twisting structure.[imageshack.us image 850x629]This picture gives you a better idea of the scale of the city[imageshack.us image 850x430]Palm island and Atlantis resort[fwallpapers.com image 850x637]Dubai also has the worlds largest indoor ski resort[tursale.com image 850x638][mw2.google.com image 500x375]I wish i had more pics... for those who like Indy car, the Dubai track actually goes through the attached hotel, which I think is neat.
