    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?

    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>

    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?
