World's tallest manmade structure..

.. is now Burj Dubai

Emaar Properties' iconic Burj Dubai has reached a towering 629 metres, smashing the existing record to become the world’s tallest manmade structure, the developer said on Monday.

The 160-storey tower, already the world’s tallest building and tallest free-standing structure, has now surpassed the 628.8-metre high KVLY-TV mast in North Dakota, US.

The KVLY-TV mast, used for transmitting television signals, had held the title of world’s tallest supported structure since 1963

I bet it took a long time to build if they had to stop every couple of hours to pray and shit.

There are 3 kinds of Sheikhs:
* Any really old man is sheikh


* Heads of a tribe or a community


* Scholars in Islamic studies




What is a mast?

^ Maybe they don't want to build a great structure so that next time they attack (or allow terrorists to attack) it, it wouldn't be such a big loss. Give the decision maker some credit.
