No. All you did was posting this nonsense: "This. There is nothing to talk about. If people need to claim things they have been working on as their own it's up to them."

So wring in so many ways. 8 precious minutes of my life wasted.
The lunar center is nice though.

Reuters Pictures: A general view is seen of the Grand Mosque during the Muslim month of Ramadan in the holy city of Mecca August 20, 2011. Saudi Arabia has begun the biggest expansion yet of Islam's holiest site, the Grand Mosque in Mecca, to raise its capacity to 2 million pilgrims, the state news agency SPA said.

With some editing, we can make this the Makkah skyline graph, with all the beautiful towers of azizia against the mountain.

There's something very surreal about it, it's like something out of an Islamic version of 1984. Having said that it is not unattractive. Perhaps the architects could have made it a little less like a Las Vegas style landmark and more curvy and sacred looking, but it transforms Mecca from a dull little desert town build around an old box into a wonder of the world.
