Awesome documentary.

The section on earthquake resistance had a very interesting fact. He said the Burj Dubai is built to withstand up to a 6.0 earthquake?!? I know the region isn't prone to major quakes, but they CAN happen anywhere. Hmmm.

I know where it is, i was referring to that it was in proximity to it. Maybe it was careless of me since its not from on the Palm itself.
