Hmmmmm, look at this stonework.....only a few months old and already looking like hundreds of years.

For info this is still under construction and is still being snagged, antway not bad quality by any country standard.
That’s why they called this project "Old Town" it was designed to look old,, you live there and should know better

People are very good at answering questions here.

Why did I even bother registering at SSC?

Feel free to ignore this post as well as the other 2 with questions @ #2586 and #2591.

Sorry for the sarcasm in this post. It is not the first time posters questions have remained unanswered.

Hey, it's happened to all of us. Sometimes the thread moves quickly, someone posts exciting pictures or people viewing the page at the moment just don't know the answer. Next a few hours go by and your question gets lost in the shuffle while everyone is excited about new pictures, posting new questions for viewing other threads. I wouldn't take it personally. It's kinda like business.

Wind your neck in dude!

Most of North America.....85% of 'your personal audience' was asleep when you posted that!

If you demand an answer most people will ignore you.

Have you tried Wikipedia?
Have you tried a Google search?

I'm sure I can safely speak for the whole of the SSC forum and we are all deeply sorry for neglecting your emergency post, we just didn't realize the gravity and life threatening urgency that has caused so much stress and personal anguish.
We all send our deepest sympathy to you and anyone who has the great fortune of being blessed with your iconic presence.

You must have been in complete turmoil and I humbly beg you to forgive us all.
I personally take full responsibility and I am hanging my head in shame.
Please don't ever regret registering with SSC, the whole thread would feel totally void and worthless without your contributions.

Please don't jump off a cliff to end this painful mortal coil, will you?

Don't worry. I'll go back to being a lurker again.

I am a very forgiving person. Next time I want a question answered I'll be patient and simply look at the posts and not say a word.

I don't want to be banned so this will be my last post on this matter. I will not respond to any further replies to this post.

I know being in Australia in Daylight Savings Time not many people are online in North America when I log on.

Now lets get back to talking about Burj Dubai.

Prices were 400% what they were in October 2007, when I was there last. Sad but true. It helps to be stupidly rich, and I am not. I hope it eases as all of the new hotels open.

And if you want to drink then it helps to stay in 4 and 5-star hotels, these are the only feasible places for an outsider/ visitor to get hammered. But pricey.
