I am curios if upcoming generations will think aliens have helped Emaar to built the BD, like some of us are thinking aliens helped the egyptians to built the pyramides.

Tremendous buliding! It's propably, that it will be the tallest structure for many years, because of global financial crysis (aborted plans of 1km tall Al Burj-Nakheel Tower). Anybody knows prices of top floors?

Hahah, I thought that too, but the total of replies is not matching the number of posts.
Look at the upper-right corner of your post: it's #18990.

Also notice that the page 951 is already available, but if you click it, you find yourself here again.
The reason is that there are 10 moderated posts that can not be read by us, mere mortal users, I guess.
Those shouldn't account for the visible number of total replies, something that can only be fixed by the webmasters.
