hahaha, ok maybe I didn't get the joke because I wasn't following this forum before the Burj dubai construction began... So I didn't see those skeptics... I personally never had a doubt when they said they will build a 600+ m tower...

annoying

All the time, until january 17th, i was really looking forward to check this thread as i expected some news about the construction and so on.
But since january 17th, this forum is just one big mess.. I am totally pissed off because of the huge numbers of the stupid smileys everyone is just pasting here..

This thread has lost all of it's informative value, which it has been establishing for many years, in just 2 days.. congrats to all of you spamers

btw.. Honestly, looking at the structure at the moment, I thought, the cladded part of the pinnacle would move a little bit higher, but as it is topped out now, i just hope that everything that needs to be finished, will get finished without any big troubles..

I had to write such a post..

Ah well... just let them... it's the highest structure in all time, so for once it's ok. Good posts with pictures and info will come again now. But I agree it gotta stop now.

Honestly, enough with the party, please stop this crap!!!

If you want to see dancing bananas and all that mumbo jumbo, just look at the last 10 pages and think what exactly makes your bananas more special than the previous thousands of bananas!

Well I agree, even though this tops our current Taipei 101 by a whopping 300 metres, it doesn't mean all people will lose all of their maturity.

Though it is tallest at the moment but watch out there are many skyscrapers to come i.e. Kingdom Tower of KSA, Nakheel Harbour and tower of Dubai etc.
