I have a memory of once seeing a set of pictures where the Burj Khalifa was placed in different cities so one could grasp it's size.
Anyone know what I'm talking about?

I've got to say it: Waatching the Fountain shows with the tower as backdrop is such a awesome expeerience. No matter how many times you've done it, it's always AMAIZING.

... one can't really understand unless experience it him/herself (same with how awsomely tall and magnificent the tower is)
