Stop trashing this thread with 'it's completed, it should be closed' or 'why do all americans want this thread to be closed' etc etc. It's BULLSHIT that no one cares about. This is seriously the last warning. All rtards that have nothing to add get lost, I deleted all the useless replies as you all can see.

I'm losin' it .....
Hi Fury,

Easy now guy, I'm sure that info is on its way as we speak! But I really wanna know too! It will be a relief to finally put this to rest.

I'll say one thing though, it will have to be 828m because I can't imagine how embarrassing it's going to be if they (CTBUH) have different ideas to Emaar..

Get ready for a whole slew of lightning pics. I was fast asleep and nowhere near it last night, but it got hit dozens of times.
