-   -   [Dubai][lol]Worlds tallest tower closes (https://www.tribalwar.com/forums/showthread.php?t=605122)

mandarb 02-09-2010 00:04

As someone who loves to travel, Dubai is like on the bottom of my list. Why? Outside of the tallest building and some shopping malls, there is simply nothing there I want to see. I think Mitch is funny as hell, and I think hes probably easy to troll, but I simply can't see what the fuss is over. What point is having the worlds tallest building when there is nothing else to see? Why would I pay airfare to see that building (in 30 minutes no less) and leave and have nothing else to do but sit on a beach all day. (Give me a beach in the Caribbean or Belize any day)

I hope Dubai can make something of this tower and help the economy and I hope it can help with the credit woes its facing now. Otherwise, its going to have the tallest empty building on the planet for a good long while.

:sunny:

They took all the stupidest trappings of the West and built gigantic monuments to them.

It's pretty much a city made for bored middle schoolers.

Yep, I don't understand why one would want to travel there at all. And then, add in the insane laws. Yay?

Billion dollar islands built in the shape of the world, nobody buys them, tallest building in the world, nobody is able/willing to move in. That whole place is a disaster.

The question is... how do they not see what we can all see so clearly from a few thousand miles away? That it's all just an epic failure and the entire world is laughing at them... During the planning phase of these projects there is not a single person that speaks up?

the metric system is based on mass which is a derived quantity

the english system is based on weight which is a measured quantity

you tell me which one makes more sense

I love dubai threads because they bring out both mitch and ngfm, who are like 2 opposite (and retarded) sides of the same coin.

same for china threads.. its a country in decline bagging on those rising up.

I don't like Vegas either, but you're exaggerating a little.

I wonder if the Burj will be part of this?

You're also surrounded by a bunch of nip loli ****dolls while Mitch is up to his neck in hairy, stinking, camel humping she-beasts.

Advantage Lagbear.

Fact: You're the biggest dumbass on the forum. The fact that you can't see how big of a mess Dubai is, makes you look like a ****ing uneducated retard.

Just a dirty hippy that doesn't understand that Dubai is a planning disaster.

But go ahead and get defensive and ban me....because we all know that's what you do when you feel threatened by someone smarter than you. Which I might add, is a LOT of ****ing people.

:wave:

also i'd like to add onto gumbos point that australians are limited to 3 minute showers, they're not allowed to wash their cars, they're not allowed to water their lawns, etc.

your entire country is out of water. i dont think you're in any position to say a country is on the decline when your own is becoming an uninhabitable desert faster than anywhere else on the planet.

Dubai has nothing in common with Vegas besides being built on sand, so I have no idea what you're saying.

Because the entire city was built by one man. There was a show on 60 minutes that followed him around explaining how he did it. The guy had big dreams. I'm sure they never asked "what if", or realized that terrorism and their laws (cutting off hands and legs) would keep Americans away.

In honor of the 3-minute Australian shower I am going to go sit in mine for 45 minutes until the hot water runs out. :wave:
