And surely in the event of a fire you're not supposed to use the lifts anyway?

Not quite the same height this is one they built in my town 30 odd years ago,nobody lives in it now,believe it or not it's going to be pulled down because of pigeons.:rolleyes:
I installed the television system, before the lifts were working, buggah of a job.

... a good example, Mr Draper, if I may, of the difference between correlation and causation.

Or is it?:E

Actually as tower blocks went that was a very good one,well appointed inside,carpeted corridors ect well maintained at the begining, one could have happily lived on the top floor fantastic views from up there,all the Tower blocks were ok IMHO only mature folks were allowed to live in em,no kids or noisy young folks allowed,it was the maisonetts that surrounded them that became sink estates,that and maintenence standards dropped in later years.

Nah! that was St Cuthberts Village Maisonettes,another award winning design for the Architect so naturally they were bulldozed flat thirty years later,me sheepskin was prolly still there somewhere and the architect prolly still has the award on the wall of his thatched cottage somewhere in the Cotswolds

No they are equipping it with these (http://www.martin-baker.com/)

THAT building is scary high!

One will gladly fly anything (that is not designed for 1-way trip plan, mind-you) and it does not matter much if its slanty, squishy, right side up or tother. Despite that, buildings over a few stories give us an edgyness that just doesn't thin out with time. To many earthquakes in memory, perhaps. Or maybe just the paranoia of those who occasionally are both clumsy and absent-minded.

We hope the Dubaians will stay on good terms with the Arab militants in their neighborhood. That thing has 'target' written all over it.

Sorry Mr D but duty calls...

Such is the level of the bar in the State Sector.

well appointed inside,
Think Trabant (http://www.time.com/time/specials/2007/article/0,28804,1658545_1658533_1658030,00.html)

well maintained at the begining,
Think Trabant (http://www.designercars.net/biler/Trabant-Temporary-53604.jpg)

one could have happily
as the State provider of your luxury goods you will adhere to the unquestionably reasonable reasonableness of the State in terms of what constitutes happy - don't forget, we know best, (better?, bestest?) ah f*ck it, let's not be colonyal engerlish exploitative language snobs aswell eh?

only if you agreed with the reasonableness of above - otherwise you'd come crawling to... err,.... us. Anyway :

on the top floor
wherever, up to us not you

fantastic views from up there
Listen, I'm not paid to do marketing in fact despite you wasting my time I think I now have a case to present to one of the many very important and clever HR directors about pay differentials

it was the maisonetts that surrounded them that became sink estates,that and maintenence standards dropped in later years.
Forget who built the maizonets and organized maintenance - we outsourced both of that crap to some brother-in-law of the councillor (sorry private sector) so NOT OUR PROBLEM - IT'S CAPITALISM'S FAULT OK DUUUHHH! Look, if you're not happy we'll either :

a) only take your rubbish away every couple of weeks instead of weekly
b) remove access to a local doctor outside 10-12/2-4 Mon-Fri excluding bank holidays in any country on the planet
c) charge you to park at a hospital - even if you're ill
d) nick what's left of your pension fund to ensure that a lesbian outreach adoption transition officer can retire earlty on 50k/year
e) hire a lesbian outreach adoption transition officer (at 70k/year + 12 wks leave) to ensure that the investment stolen in d) is not wasted
f) in fact we'll do all the above and if you don't like it still we'll just put up your tax further as you obviously aren't happy enough to appreciate what we're capable of.

Happy now? No? Tough, try and sack me- go on mr big guy:}

A man's greatest erection for a woman.

Mind you, she was dead.

On the other hand the Taj has to be one of those rare, famous sites which is so much better in reality than the publicity can prepare you for.

Mind Mr.BombayDuck (http://www.pprune.org/members/73497-bombayduck)
It's a symbol of Love,and is highly respected.There can't be another example which describes a true love than That of Taj.
It's a symbol of Love.

Please don't forget your milk. I believe there are so many lifts in the Burj it takes 45 mins to get to the top.
By the time you get to the corner shop you would have forgotten what you went there for!
Very impressive but highly (sic) impractical.

28th Jan 2009, 16:09
Topped out now...

28th Jan 2009, 16:14
Really like the idea of this one. Just a bit disappointing that the rotation rate for each floor is limited to just 1 rotation per hour.:(

28th Jan 2009, 17:09
The Burj Dubai will pale into insignificance when the "Southern Belle" finally posts the Pictures of the Infamous "Alloa Akbar" erection.;)
Ps. Can't believe I beat Whirls, Cof F, BF and all the others to the POINT.:D

28th Jan 2009, 17:34
Holy schmoly - that is one impressive erection. Wouldn't have liked to put the scaffolding up around that.

A fine monument to Dubai's now-defunct economic model - willy-waving of the highest order.

Impressive? it's feckin hideous,looks like summat sticking up from a oil refinery.

28th Jan 2009, 21:36
You are obviously not versed in the ways of the UAE.:ok: EVERY corner store, umpteen thousand of them, including the ones not on corners, ;) home deliver everything from one 250 ml bottle of milk, can of coke etc. I kid you not. :ok:

29th Jan 2009, 10:01
I wonder what the death toll is for the immigrant construction workers who are building it???

29th Jan 2009, 10:08

Yer right there - its in Dubai

29th Jan 2009, 10:33
:confused:Dubai has :mad:all oil, :eek: we have it all here 100 miles down SZR.:D

29th Jan 2009, 12:15
Rule 3, not quite true.
Energy review states the following;

Dubaiís oil reserves have reduced over the past decade and are now expected to be exhausted within 20 years. The main fields are offshore: Fateh, Southwest Fateh and two smaller fields, Falah and Rashid. The only onshore deposit is the Margham field. Dubai Petroleum Company (DPC) is the main operator. Dubai has a 2 per cent share of the UAE's gas reserves. Dubaiís Margham gas/condensate field can deliver up to 140 mn cfd for domestic use and offshore fields can provide another 100 mn cfd. Sharjah also supplies Dubai with 430 mn cfd through a pipeline installed in 1992. The state-owned Dubai Natural Gas Company (DUGAS) is responsible for processing natural gas produced in Dubaiís offshore oil fields as well as the gas piped from Sharjah.

Such large erections should be restricted to countries not likely to be targetted by 'turrists'. What a target eh?

And why would you want to go there anyway?

This from today's paper;

Dubai's beaches closed to the public.

The beaches of Dubai have become so clogged with toilet paper, raw sewage and chemical waste that they have become dangerous to public health.

The country's once-pristine coast, which is dotted with six star hotels and exclusive resorts, has been transformed into a foul-smelling health hazard in recent weeks.

The state of the beaches have become so bad that a stretch of the exclusive Jumeirah Beach - a magnet for Western tourists and home to a string of expensive hotels - has been closed.

ďItís a cesspool. Our tests show too many E. coli to count. Itís like swimming in a toilet,Ē Keith Mutch, the manager of the Offshore Sailing Club, told the Times.

His club has posted warnings about the danger of entering the polluted water and has been forced to cancel regattas.

The state of the beaches is a blow to Dubaiís reputation as an international holiday destination offering almost guaranteed sunshine and sparkling seas.

:confused:I suggest you do a little more research. :ok:Abu Dhabi accounts for between 90% and 95% of UAE oil production, and depending on which "source" you use, Dubai produces between 85,000 and 200,000 bpd, Abu Dhabi more than 2,000,000 bpd .with reserves for 70+ years at this output level .:ok::D

the rotation rate for each floor is limited to just 1 rotation per hour.
Judging from the traffic in the foreground it must be rotating at 500,000 RPM at least. :eek:
A good case to be made for being prepared to make a base jump if living in such a highrise, in event of fire or other emergency. :ooh:

1st Feb 2009, 23:03
It seems laughable now, but this hotel in my city had a restaurant on the "top" floor and a big sign on the roof that blinked "DINE IN THE SKY."
This was long before my time - in the 1940s.

They finally took the sign down sometime in the 1950s. The hotel remains, but is dwarfed by sky scrapers.
