Kingsc, I doubt very seriously if we'll ever see a building as tall as Mount Everest.

Isn't it about 25 or so degrees below 0 up there? That's too cold, and I think the atmosphere is thinner up there, making it hard to breath. We'll NEVER see that!

I think this is a great pic - my three favourite buildings in Dubai

The two triangular-plan buildings are called the Emirates Towers, right?

Daquan I know they can't do that or maybe they can air presser and all. do it like the airplanes do lol. Plus the guys who build these building think their gods anyway what to say they wouldn't try it. Anyway I don't want to get off topic, let get back to the subject at hand.
