something can always happen. a financial crisis or an investor jumping off or nature strikes. so it will not be built for sure, but it is very probable and very likely to get build now.

Every one of those is as probable as Godzilla arriving from Japan to tear it down. So keep on dreaming, but expect disappointment in the future.

Not to pick on you or anything, but a little word of advice: Your posts sure are an uplifting read and bringing some (often much-needed) laughter to the thread, but they are a tiiiiiny bit tiresome to read, which unfortunately diminishes their value a little.

I have nothing against the way you write, talk to people (quite the contrary, in fact!) or use smileys, but could you please tone down the capital letters a notch? They were originally invented so it would be easier to separate sentences or find names in the text, but when every other word is capitalized, it works in reverse: it gets so much harder to distinguish sentences or names, and the post looks slightly messy.

Don't get me wrong, I think your posts are awesome, but they could be even more awesome if made easier to read!



As for Kingdom Tower, I wonder what they are waiting for at the moment. Do the piles have to dry and harden before they can start above-ground work? Are the contractors all busy elsewhere? Has the tower funding been cut from the budgets this year, so construction is pushed back a little? Sure, there is activity on the site, but it's not exactly busy, neither do the media seem have caught up on it. Progress might be underway, but it doesn't really scream "we're building the world's tallest structure here!" at the moment. Hopefully, the next batch of photos will show a little more activity.

I don't know why I bother to check this thread for updates. It's just people screaming and spamming.
