I would savour the irony if rising sea levels drowned these islands mere days after they've been completed. Savour, I tell you!

I wouldn't be surprised if they built a massive wave breaker structure a mile off the coast, with locks, and actually pumped water out of it, like a hightech version of Amsterdam. Dubai is so weird to me because it's so dissociated, multicultural, and disconnected from reality. It's what space colonization looks like. The area around their is wasteland. We are living in Star Trek right now, and it's not as comfortable as it's supposed to be.

A place where Westerners can vacation without fear of being kidnapped and beheaded with a saw knife.

"Unlike anything else... The World. Ok that's a wrap right? That's all you needed?"

"Goddamnit NO! You never mentioned how EPIC it is."

"Oh... well I have to pick my kids up, can I just say EPIC and you can just slap it in there? Maybe at the end?"

"Argh. You fucking voice actors. FINE, but don't expect more work from us, Herman. Alright... roll tape."



"EPIC."

I don't think you understand the point of this website.

maybe i'll keep posting and you somehow deal with it long enough to finish masturbating over war and oppression as long as they produce super neat things

5 stars for the majority of civilization being built on the backs of slave labor. WAH!

"The World?" They couldn't have come up with something snazzier like "Second Earth" or "Earth Islands?"

Also, does this mean they're not building the giant, underwater, Rapture-like city anymore or what? Cuz I thought that was first up on Dubai's crazy construction calendar.

It was not impossible to build Rapture in Dubai. It was impossible to build it anywhere else.

Hate Dubai if you must, but they started and are almost done with the 2700 foot Burj Dubai tower in less time than we've been furrowing our brows at the (still) big empty hole where the WTC used to be

If they don't use this for enormous games of live-action Risk I have lost all faith in Allah.
