gosh... Burj Dubai is so tall... and the lake is fantastic... I think the colors of the lake are okay, when you look from street level... but maybe the lake looks ugly from above...

I think the answer to your question can be found in wisdom a couple of thousand years old:

Quote:
‘Why was the ointment wasted in this way? For this ointment could have been sold for more than three hundred denarii, and the money given to the poor.’...For you always have the poor with you, and you can show kindness to them whenever you wish; but you will not always have me. (Jesus)

Mark 14:3-9
So quit making daft comments, love the Burj for the fantastic piece of architecture it is.

So the "fantastic piece of architecture"
has a greater value than a human life ?

What I'm saying-but is obviously a bit difficult for you to absorb- is your never going to solve world hunger with the money used on the Burj Dubai. So, there is no point discussing it here, just stick to the architecture please.

with that money you could help at most couple milions, once, and in a week they would still be as poor as they are know. hoping that the help would not get robbed by local warlords, or how ever you call the leaders of those armed war units in there. increasing the whole worlds wealth by increasing its economic growth can help more people, for way longer.


besides: are you 12 not to realize that people having money want to make more money, build prestige, etc? do you help people in africa with all you earn? no? then why do you demand from others to do so. especially in this case, when they have a lot more to lose. so don't try to smartass around, trying to look like a good samaritan, which you clearly are not. you only end up looking stupid/immature + trolish.
