What about using the tiny piece of brain in your head before posting something like this?!

Maybe there are no pieces

I dont get it. There is by far no other person in this thread that contributes so much than imre... how can there be so rude statements when there is no activity for 3 days

Anyway:

About Oldtowns pic... the new vertical beams look damn high. I wonder what rise rate they'll achieve now. It was 3 days for one (bigger) concrete floor i'm really looking forward to see the average rate when they've finally found the rhytm.

You really need to learn some respect.


I dont think it looks any higher than its suposed to be. Remember, when the first beams were placed on the floor below, a number of people said the same thing. If you look at them again, I beleive the top meter of them is simply part of the next floor.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but using bastard in this context isn't meant to offend someone. Bastard is in this case more of a synonymous for chap, guy or anything like that.

Anyway, I could see the sarcasm of it Just watch some Scottish movies and read Sunshine's post again, but then with a strong Scottish accent :P

And to do some ontopic posting as well: Yeey, great/wonderfull/amazing pics, i'm so excited, must be over 600 meter, OMG, etc.
But seriously, I’m looking forward to the next set of pics

More like the Chrysler building since it's both tall AND uniquely beautiful.

Could anyone post a recent pic of Dubai with burj dubai in please? All those towers rising up should have a big impact on the skyline since I last check the site in july.

thanx, wow, no density at all, only big towers, I mean there not side to side... should be easier to developp Dubai. But I prefer cities like New York or europpean style cities where there are no hole and that all buildings are ''glue'' together.
