I know that being jailed for such a small amout is silly and stupid, but at least better than being jailed for where you are from or becuase you look suspecious (patriot act). Thats what i think anyways.
Actually Mr. Brown was jailed just because of the way he looked. He was checked for microscopic amounts of cannabis because he looked Jamaican. He had stepped on a joint somewhere -> 4 years in prison.

They can find traces of drugs anywhere they want. For example dollar and euro bills contain traces of cocain. They can jail you if they want to. Just remember that.

I really wouldn't like to sit 4 years in an Asian prison for eating a bread roll with poppy seeds.

The higher the BD grows the more it looks like an industrial chimney. At least from far away. I hope the cladding fixes that.

I dreamed about Burj Dubai last night

I was going to go to Dubai to see it, but someone told me I was going to the wrong place, and actually it's being built in Wimbledon, England.

So I went there instead, and there it was. Surrounded by grass and trees and a very British scene. It looked beautiful

I was thinking about how I was going to post my photos of it in this thread, when I woke up, and slowly realised that maybe the Burj Dubai is in Dubai afterall...

Hehe.. I laughed at whoever it was who said he dreams about skyscrapers. And here I am, doing it myself.

Hey MJXII I can relate...

The Burj has left many impressions on us. Years ago I had a dream I went to NEW YORK,It was a late summer afternoon. There was jungle everywhere,and I was at the foot of the Empire State Building. All the supertall skyscrapers say above 600 feet were intact except for the jungle everywhere,even the old WTC.. The Empire State was illuminated with its floodlights as the afternoon sun was setting,it was almost like Skull Island from Kong and NYC were woven together . Very cool,almost romantic. Our love for these tall buildings even Leak into our sleep. It's amazing what the Burj ,when it is completed and we see it on advertisements everywhere will be like. Great age to be in for the skyscrapers.

Yay 1 million views!

I could name a few others (including myself (j/k)) that could deserve an epic as well.

Also from yesterday:
