    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/li...ews.html?in_article_id=557448&in_page_id=1811is the tallest man-made structure in the world – and it is still growing.

    When complete next year the Burj Dubai will stretch half a mile into the sky over the United Arab Emirates, taller than three Canary Wharf towers balanced on top of each other.


    Already 2,200ft tall, and the result of 22million man hours of labour, the Burj is the pinnacle of skyscraper engineering.

    Forget about a tall building, these guys are so loaded they're building whole islands! Ever see the show "Impossible Islands" on Discovery? They built an island series shaped like a palm tree, as well as a group of islands making a map of the world. Disgusting, I wonder if they give to charities, or if they're keeping all the oil money for themselves? If they're being selfish maybe we ought to swing a couple brigades down from Iraq into the UAE.
