The host of Build it Bigger (not the dude in the Burj Dubai Discovery show) was recently covering the SWFC and had a show on it. He even had acupuncture and cupping done which is thought to alleviate his fears so he can go up there.

Burj truly is a man-made wonder of the world, it's really hard to say with confidence that any tower will top it in the near future.

Can we stop talking about the host of that programme and focus on the subject of this thread, which is Burj Dubai...

I don't think al Queda has anything against the UAE, they aren't as important of an ally to the US as Saudi Arabia.

Whoa, looks like you're right. That could just be the angle, though. Why would they dismantle it now?
