Every ejaculation contains about 300 million sperm cells, I once got taught at school.

That's a lot of children.

IMHO this venture is pure dissipation of money without sustainable financial prudence. The Sheiks are to get above oneself. The investors will to blow through her money. A 1000 m skyscraper is not economically.

And you care why? Without these Sheiks and the investors to blow through their money, we would be here talking about the tallest tree in the world and shrubbery that's over 10 feet high

- minor domestic added value / the most building materials are foreign made= drain of money to abroad
(well for german industry and german taxe revenue )
- bad relationship useful areas /unuseful factory areas
- high building / construction and high operating costs
- partial atrtifically office market , high vacancy rate in local office market

Sorry for my English,if you answer,please in pennsylvanien dutch.
( I can understand it,but not whrite. )

I don't care about any of that. Just like I couldn't care less about the German tax revenue. I'm here for one reason and that reason is to look at and talk about great architecture and towers that continue to go higher and higher. It's not my money(if it was, I would do the same thing) and all the stuff you listed above...well, I couldn't give a lesser shit about

Peteralt, Our SSC Family Friend, Its Under Construction with at least 270 Pilings going in very slowly with monthly pictures coming from Rody69, who lives near there taking pictures, But , its a Hot summer there now and Work is progressing mostly at Night with Huge Floodlights on the site, The first floor could be completed by Late Summer, 2014, with a Vertical Construction Maybe soon after, probably Late , 2014 for sure with a top off of the Spire 5 years Later IMO I still see a 2021 opening IMO.
