Look... I just thought that 7 videos of a fountain on a post for the Burj Dubai was a little much. I mean, come on... it's a fountain...
Get a life.

Wow. The Burg Dubai is, for lack of a better word, stratospheric.

I hope I can visit Dubai soon.

Sad though that the golbal crisis is now hitting Dubai hard. Well, at least this tower has made it, almost.

Great photo indeed. You can really appreciate the size of the Burj.

The Thread is nearing a top out as well.

Lets also take a look at your thinking: If at a cost of over $200 million dollars, the Dubai Fountain is 'just a fountain' then by that standard, the billion dollar Burj Dubai is then 'just a building'. Why do you care about the Burj then? Its just a building. By your standard then, you have no need to be on this thread.

Furthermore, how logical is it to just pick and choose what you like yet judge others for their preferences? I'm surprised you weren't moaning about shots of the Dubai Mall in those videos. After all, with 1200 stores, its 'just a mall'.

Don't deride a poster's decision to place a few videos up when its in fact you who deserves derision.

Clearly you are completely ignorant as to the scale and cost of that fountain, and its technological value. Clearly your thinking is flawed. Clearly its sad this has to be explained to you . . . by strangers.

There are better ways of getting attention than by being a troll. Quit judging other's choices when clearly yours are far less thought through.
How am I dictating content? I have no control of the content you are posting...

Your exactly right about my thinking... I could care less about how much that friggin' fountain costs, because at the end of the day... it's a fountain, not a symbol of prosperity for the middle east.

And I wasn't picking and choosing what I like, my first point was that it was off topic, simple as that.

Wait, your right again, I have no clue about the unimaginable scale and technological breakthroughs that the Burj Dubai water fountain has contributed to the human civilization, it is CLEARLY beyond my comprehension(thank God).

One last thing for my final post about your videos... it wasn't for attention, I just didn't want the thread to be clogged by side projects of the Burj.

These are Imre Solt's images made into a video..

He has many photo's - imi, maybe we go through you harddrives and make a full video.

It does suprise me that Emaar doesn't have a camera set up somewhere. maybe they do?

Look at your first sentence and then last sentence. You say you don't want to dictate the content, but then you tell us to stop clogging the thread with side projects.

You tell us the fountain talk is off topic, how is arguing about whether the fountain should be in this topic more 'on topic'? I didn't see anything new about the Burj in your post.

This is all about attention. You have no other reason to be stubbornly arguing your position which all of us disagree with. The more stubbornly slow you are, the more responses you'll get. Its only natural. Since you don't like the thread, create some other thread that is 'fountain free'. But you don't. Wouldn't have too many people looking at your new thread like this one would you?

Prove to us this isn't about getting attention by keeping your mouth shut and disappearing for a while. 10 bucks says you can't.

Cool photo on Flickr:




Like this photo: shows a bit better what needs to be completed on the spire.

I think they do, because I have seen time-lapse videos already in documentaires.

Pics from lunch break at Dubai Mall:





Large format (5348x1200): http://www.quetschluft.de/dubai/joes_cafe_q.jpg















The remains of yesterday's sandstorm... it'll be a b*tch to clean this all the time. If they don't we will soon have the natural lake which some of you guys have requested - and not much later a mud puddle
