At least it's more relevant than showing holiday pictures from the Philippines...

I'm looking forward to see a thread cleanup from the moderators

Will there be any mass transit linked to Burj Dubai? Subway, light-rail, monorail?

Because they are misinformed. By the time they get to Dubai, it's too late. Their passports are taken away and then have to pay off the loan that the construction company had them take for all the expenses to move them to Dubai. And with $5 that they make a day, they'll never be able to pay off that loan, and they can't just leave without a passport. Therefore they are wage slaves.
