    kind of strange that they don't have at least a net preventing something/someone from falling off.

    There is a net! and they only played for show for 20 minutes.

    thats really really scary
    if someone would pay a 1000 dollars i wouldnt even go up on that thing.

    i have a complex with heights as it is but when there is no safety rail/net on things liek this (ie stairs with no railing).,.. i just cant go up on that

    My step-father went to Dubai a couple years ago and showed me pictures of them building that hotel. It's pretty crazy to think that less than 20 years that place was totally deserted, then all of a sudden they found oil! Bada-bing!

    holy shit....

    I want to go to Dubai so badly. It's broken so many world records lately.
    It's like the little city that finally getting to play with the big boys.

    On of the records was the most people with the same name in the same place.
    They had something like 6000 Muhameds all chillin' out.

    Yo Muhamed!
    Sup Muhamed.
    This is Muhamed.
    How you doing Muhamed.
