That article was difficult to read over Sam Kinison's screams.

FTA: "The project "will comprise the largest indoor theme park in the world" under a glass dome that would be opened during winter, it said in a statement."

Yeah, because winter in Dubai is so damn miserable.

/just got back from Dubai

Did they refer to the sheikh as "it" a couple of times?

Is that a custom like the royal "we" I'm not aware of?

global warming is a scam.

So, they're building The Mall of Dubai?

No. They referred to the emirate as "it"....

Dubai hopes the "Mall of the World" can attract more than 180 million visitors each year.

Holy crap - I thought I was just being funny...

 
2014-07-07 07:15:59 AM
Well, building it will cost a lot of lives so, ya, that will help solve Global Warming a little bit.
 
2014-07-07 07:18:42 AM
Hang about. Subby needs to explain exactly *how* this solves global warming.

If anything, it sounds like the typical UAE project. As energy efficient as using a car to charge a portable fridge to cool a golf ball.

I re re re read it, they're referring to the holding company's statement.

The irony, of course, is that Dubai would probably throw anyone who mentioned that double entendre in prison. I mean, a kiss gets you jail time and deportation - what would implying that Dubai beat off Brazil, Russia, and Turkey get you?

Rapmaster2000: A vacation to a mall sounds terrible.


Mrs Thunder and I recently had a small vacation at the West Edmonton Mall. Loved it (although our perceptions may have been biased by the fact that it was the first time in over a year we'd been able to get away with no kids).

We air condition the world. Sure, the sky above us keeps getting hotter and hotter, but that doesn't matter in the sub-climate-control zone. Of course, some of the poor might have to live above that level, or out in the vast hellish wastelands if we can't afford to seal off everything.

This what happens when you have too much money and little responsibility.

You know what the business community thinks of you? They think that a hundred years ago you were living in tents out here in the desert chopping each other's heads off and that's where you'll be in another hundred years, so, yes, on behalf of my firm I accept your money.

Possibly even less. There's drama waiting to unfold there and the current master/slave paradigm is going to produce something truly depressing.

Funny enough, the Saudis are actually investing a crapload of money into solar power

/So they have more oil to sell to the western heathens.

So in true western style we'll let them do our R&D. Then when they reach the level of efficiency we need, we'll just take it.

Great quote from a movie that I enjoyed. I hope that it becomes reality before they all get nukes. I am OK with semi-MADD (Iran-Israel) in the Middle East, but not with all of them having it.

Can we just stop using oil? Pretty please? I'll use magical unicorn farts.

Aren't most of the buildings in Dubai mostly empty? And why would I want to go to a place with no Alcohol and where I can go to jail for holding my wifes hand?
Fark that place. Farking savages.
 
2014-07-07 08:02:16 AM
I'd be more impressed if the money was invested in a good cause like cancer research or human rights.

They serve plenty of alcohol in Dubai (this I can attest to).

The public displays of affection rule is pretty strange. They also require blood tests for those who seek a work visa. If you test positive for HIV, they "quarantine" you and stick you on a flight back home -- usually within a few days.

"Dubai's Giant Air-Conditioned Luxury Mall Will Contribute Significantly To Global Warming"

fixed that for you, subby.

All these very pious individuals wearing their cleric-specified outfits and facial hair and following all the proscribed rituals to keep them supposedly on the good side of their particular deity so they can be favored in the afterlife, but otherwise living in sheer decadence at the expense of most of their country's population.

Humans are dumb.

Dubai is going to make for an awesome post-war ghost town segment on Vice in 10-15 years.

I would rather have the HIV virus than be in Dubai on a work visa.
