Man oh man, I'm checking this thread out to get info/pictures
of the construction of an amazing skyscraper, and I get all kinds
of whining about politics and the Saudi's ideas. Also I get a lesson
on a sorted array of construction in Mecca. Thanks to "GulfArabia"

Now, maybe the Mods can start banning people for the excessive
off topic stuff and remind "GulfArabia" that he needs to review and
obey the boards rules !!!

Now back to business...
How is the clock section construction coming along?

Are those highest 10 floors under construction right now the floors where the clock will hang on to?

I don't really get why in Mecca of all places they have this huge clock with roman numerals on when arabic numerals was one of the biggest contributions arabic has given the world!

EDIT: actually looking at the clock I can't quite tell if it really is roman numerals...looks like just lots of twos...
