Pfffft, our Canadian National (CN) tower is taller than Taipei.
Going to the top of the CN Tower is always an impressive experience.

... but yeah, Burj Dubai puts us all to shame.

... deep, saddening, depressing shame.

But pretty cool nevertheless!


Sorry, shameless plug, here's a nice pic of the CN Tower with lightning.

Worst job in the world?

Being the crane operator at the top of the Burj

I'd need a break every 15 mins to change my shorts

I've been following that thing since before they started building it.
The designers of that building are pure genious if you go to the site and read the specs it seriously blows your mind.
All of Dubai is mind blowing to be honest.
