The Burj will not be 1000+, for one thing the foundations have been designed for a 950m tower, no more. The tower will be 800m at at push.

Nowhere near mate, it's just a shade under 11,000feet.

Everest is a staggering 29,017ft

This thread better not turn into 300 pages of "we need an update" until the next one arrives. These two posts are enough.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to get any kind of pictures at the weekend. Was on a stop-off at Dubai airport..... you can just see the cranes and some building work popping up over the other hangars and stuff. If I could have seen more i woulda taken a picture.... seemed like a hefty building though.

No, the extension was going on at a different part (saw that too). What I'm talking about was a fair distance from the airport.... I saw it first coming in to land.

4 weeks = 28 days

One Month = 30 or 31 days (28 for Febuary)
So
one month = 4 weeks and 2-3days.
those 2-3 days accumalte over the year to provide the extra four weeks. meaning that are 52 weeks a year.

Another way of putting it, there are 365 days a year, devide this by 7 and you get 52.14. So in reality it's 52 weeks and 1 day per year.

So you're saying a year equals 48 weeks?
