No Cul he wouldn't mind. He even asked people to do that, since he seams to have Internet problems in his new apartment and he can't access all the websites from there.

Hello everybody

After about 1 year of checking this thread, i decided to become a member!

It's not without reason, i've got a question. There is this cluster of buildings under construction near Burj Dubai besides SZR:

You can see the buildings in this short movie posted a few days ago:


(a few months ago, they looked really black)

What are they called???

(btw, where did vanhenrik go? he was funny!)

I love those channel 4 intro's. If you look at about the 30second mark you will see a very suttle '4' as the skyscrapers form together. Consequently you can't believe everything you see is real in that clip as the '4' is certainly superimposed. There's also an Hong Kong one (or is it Tokyo) which is very Blade Runner. The whole series is probably available on Youtube or www.channel4.com

Sorry if they were posted before.

Lol, It looks just out of this world, sooo much taller than anything else, even though everything around it is already incredibly tall. Just amazing.

The towers are the Executive Towers. They are a part of Business Bay.
