at such heights you can't play arround with the shape and design of a tower as you can do it with a 200m-300m skyscraper i think

This is really putting the technology over the edge. Japan before have a lot of proposals for a tall skyscraper but pity that none of them gets build. However, middle asia did not have any research before but they can will all the engineers all over the world to do the impossible. Very Ironic isn't it.

For this project let's see and wait and I'm very excited for the new technology that they will use to stabilized this huge structure.

This is a complete waist of money, there are people starving in Africa and all over the world and they are more interested in spending their money on a frankly pointless tower.

Talk about bringing up irrelevant facts.

Kids are molested every day, too. And people have heart attacks. And I broke my PS2 and can't play video games anymore.
