Guys,
Some of you think that the Base Jump off the Burj was the highest Base Jump ever. But it was actually the 2ND highest ever. Dean Potter is the worlds best Rock Climber and he holds the record for the highest Base Jump at 2,000 Meters.
Here's the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sf49cw0134U

Hi all.

What a fantastic edifice !!

I said this 5 years ago and I'll say it again.
I would sweep the floors for free just to get to be in this structure daily.
Better yet I would change the light bulbs for free - esp. the top ones - though it might take me a while to get up there ...

A bit of a shameless bump - but hey ...


Ray.

Hi Sale.
Considering construction is soon to be completed I'm assuming you have connections with operations and/or maintenance ?
