Disappointing. The Burj Dubai will not reach normal clouds.
I have to wait for the Nakheel Tower.

During the steelwork erection both Altin and myself posted on several occasions in the past that the next level of steel had started only to find a few hours later that it had mysteriously dissapeared an hour or so later.

Explanied to me at the weekend that the spire had been installed in sections throughout the steel level increases and sunk into the structure out of sight.

So this explains that I was not going mad, but cant speak for Altin

If it wasn't because of that, you wouldn't have all the big cathedrals of Italy and the all those big monuments.

Freud observed this to be a natural human behavior, its part of nature and mentality which drive humans into pushing their technological and metal limits as an act of evolution through competition. Countering this behavevior is countering civilazation.
Burj Dubai couldn't be a more clear about its porpose, therefore it won its place in history.

Wow, and I thought 2009 would never come. It seems like just yesterday when Taipei 101 was still proposed!
