Sorry folks I forgot to post this in the am, so I'm doing tomorrow a bit early.

A cow orker of mine sent me this.
I was curious, so I tried looking for " Al Futaisi " on google maps. Sure enough, I found it. Must be nice to have a few extra BILLION laying around to dig a hole in the sand big enough to be visible from space. really? REALLY?????



Clodfobble  Thursday Jul 21 04:35 PM

Well, there are worse things he could be doing with his money, I suppose.



wolf  Thursday Jul 21 05:54 PM

Shame they misspelled it, though.

His name is Ahmad.



Undertoad  Thursday Jul 21 06:00 PM

And they wrote it upside down.

And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
And on the pedestal these words appear --
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.'

What a disgraceful waste of resources.

What a narcissistic self-indulgence.

I also sneer at him for writing in in Roman rather than Arabic letters.

Loser.

And I bet he has a tiny penis.

He has some crazy toys. He likes huge cars, so he has them custom built for him to scale. He's got a big Jeep and a big truck, and a big Range Rover, and a mobile home trailer in the shape of the Earth.

Turns out his choice of font was very important.

Ari Al Sans-serif was his grandfather.

So when you "throw up" you're actually throwing.... out?

Tap tap. Is this thing working?


Ah, screw you guys, I'm going home.

I'd be tempted to call photoshop but it is there on google maps. Quite funny how it is at different stages of completion at different zooms.

And lets face it, if we had THAT kind of money, we all would...



classicman  Sunday Jul 24 07:31 PM

I believe that originally it was all supposed to fill with water, but that didn't work out so well.

Hell no I wouldn't have!
I'd have built something useful in that spot. Like a heat-lamp store, or a flea circus, perhaps a spray tanning salon.

ZenGum  Monday Jul 25 07:31 AM

Well, about 49% of the population would just make a giant dick.



ZenGum  Monday Jul 25 07:32 AM
