Are you talking about the Persian Gulf? If that's the case what is so funny calling the sea as a man-made lake?

I don't have a sense of humour? OK, I'm sure you will like this joke:

They already built a huge building in the east, 11 times the height of Burj Dubai, and cladded it with snow, ice and rocks. It topped out millions of years ago and they dismantled the crane (For those who don't get the joke, "everything is better and bigger in Asia")

Something like this (old renders, so I don't know if they are up-to-date).



Some images from the Dubai subforum.

Top-out doesn't mean the end of the tower. Still lots to do.
