    [quote user="zimonami"]

    Now you got me wondering. I'll say, somewhat facetiously... do you think their concrete might have an unusually high concentration of sand? After all, their most abundant resources are oil and desert sand.</p>


    I'd love to go to the top... just to see how much sway there is in a high wind.</p>[/quote]

    Yeah who knows. It's always interesting to know what countries building codes are the best. Will sand be better or worse if it's embedded in the concrete? Afterall, the great pyramids have outlasted everything...

    There has got to be sway on the top, otherwise the building would crack....motion sickness anyone?

It </font><font style="font-size: 1.2em;">stands more than 800 metres tall and can be seen from 95 kilometres away.</font></p>

                      I am with you on that AG. I would not want to live there. lol

                      95 Klicks.... maybe but not in the AG, you are lucky to see something from 3 miles. Add to the fact that I've seen the labor over there, and I'm not sure I'd want to be hanging in that building.

                      That's a good point. What exactly are their building codes?

                      It's not the codes, they hire a bunch of TCNs (third country nationals) and pay them pennies, practically slave labor.

                                I'll hold onto my Mini-14 and 870 mag to hold off the masses as well.
