Hm, a cold shower with electric shocks for starters, then some hot iron stuff to give this thread a medieval flavor, then tea break to think of something fancy to do with your corpse!

Can this source be considered official I cannot believe that. Nakheel explicitly said that the construction of the Tower is going in accordance with the set schedules. (In interview awhile back)

We will see what happens. People will check the construction site and see if work progresses or not.

Yeah...I'll wait for the official word. If we know anything about the press, it's that they are not always correct in what the report.

In the same page: “'Further work on the foundations of Nakheel Harbour and Tower will commence in 12 months. The foundation works are likely to take approximately three years to complete,' a Nakheel spokesman said in comments published by UAE daily The National."

Same previous news.
