Why's everyone posting Cyclone Gonu news in the Burj Dubai construction thread?

It's moving along Oman and the UAE's east coast towards southern Iran.

It is not close to 50 degree every dauy; It hardly passes 40. What Imre shows as 47 is on very enclosed, concrete jungle, pocket areas where the air is trapped and heated up by the asphalt and concrete emissions, as well as from the A/C equipments of the buildings around.

I experienced 52 degree last year in such area, I just drove on a paralel road a few meters away and the temperature dropped by 5 degree right away.

All this watermark stuff is all too deep for me.
I should have gone to college I guess.

OH, and by the way, Vitalstatistix --- high winds and high buildings.
Do you get the connection???

Oh man, where's my tylenol?

Once again: That account was banned becouse it belongs to someone who created such havoc in the forum 2.5 years ago that the Administrators decided to "award" her with a BAN FOR LIFE sentence. Since then 10 - 20 other incarnations of her have been banned.

She's a very inteligent girl though, to bad she has the very unstable and unpredictable dark side ... that even Mr. Hyde would envoy.
