The tallest building in the world is opening today. Or so I heard on the radio.


I'm Trying to find a good picture

But it's bassically the size of one and a half CN towers

It's actually 12 degrees Celsius colder at the top

That would make an awesome dildo.



Perfect for her anyway. It's a murder weapon to anyone else.

Well, this just goes to show what we can accomplish, but yet as previously posted, it could basically be just a homing beacon for bastards like Al Quaeda to do a 9/11 on its ass. But hey, time shall tell.

You know what really twists my melon about tall buildings? Even twistier than the fact that they exist?

If you have a clock on the bottom floor and a clock on the top floor, after a while they'll go out of sync. The top of the building travels further in a day, and therefore has to travel faster. Goddamn relativity!

The difference would be neglibible, even after a few hundred years.

What's so hard to believe about a chick who is 6'9''? That's only slightly taller than me. If you put a really short model, who is for example under 5'' , obviously the height is going to look impressive.

The Burj may be taller, but the CN Tower is way sweeter/everyone knows it

60 miles.


And this is pretty fucking awesome. Kinda wish it wasn't in some backwards dump like the UAE but still cool. They were gonna plan the first kilometre high building as well but then they've had financial problems recently.

I'd hardly say anywhere with Dubai in it is a backwards dump. The UAE has the world's 36th-largest economy in the world and that number's gonna keep getting lower

It's a kingdom run by sharia law and built its success using what amounts to slave labour.

Dubai's economy has an expiration date, fast foreward 50 years and we'll see where they are at, everything they have is from oil.

and this building was built by severely underpaid, mistreated, and mostly Indian workers, hooray for exploitation

Dubai's going down the crapper now, it has no oil money and Abu Dhabi's just bad to bail it out $10bn. Pretty cool building though, all built by Indian subcontinent slave workers.

Built on the back of slave labour and controlled by an oppressive authoritarian theocracy.
That's about as backwards as it gets.

Thankfully the whole place has pretty much gone bankrupt now.

Like 10 people have beaten you to that post, homeboy.


Don't ask me to explain the "homeboy". I don't know why I said it other than it seemed appropriate for som reason.

I think it's cheap when they put massive sticks on top of a tall building, adding 100m to it's height. It's basically cheating, and I simply won't stand for it!

Funny that they already announced plans to build something even taller before the Burj was even completed.
Dubai also,


This was all of course before the UAE's economy almost crashed so maybe they canceled or "postponed" plans by now
