Well, I can't believe it could be a shower

Maybe a lightning system for night shows?

LMAO!!!!! You so funny joobn! I don't think is a shower head. It wouldn't mke any sense to spray water up a the top....i t doesn't need to be cleaned cuz nobody is gonna look through it from the inside.

Don't think is an antenna either. ummmm....could be some lightning system.....or some temporary scafolding device for workers to tie in whil putting up the last pieces of cladding in the crown...no, maybe not.....its to high up for that. wtf, what is that?

Hey that does make sense! But what doesn't make sense is, why attach the 'hat' to some massive spire-like pole? lol. Wouldn't it just be easier to make it like a lid or something? Maybe it serves another function! After all, the top floors of this tower are all mechanical, right?

Someone on the UAE forum said to have seen some reports on TV that it will indeed be a kind of shower head, rising up spray water for cleanning the tower, in an operation that will take place once a year.

Hopefully he wasn't BS-ing us


... otherwise I can't bragg of being an "extremelly smart and intuitive guy" for suggesting just that.
