The Crazy Buildings of Dubai

Dubai is a city in the United Arab Emirates that once had a reputation for oil and sand and now is known for its crazy skyscrapers and other developments. We're taking a look at a few of our favorite record-breaking buildings from Dubai!

Burj Dubai

Burj Dubai When it opens in 2009, this will be the world's tallest building. The building will have a swirling flower shape that will make it both beautiful and sturdier. When it opens, it will house shops, offices, residences, and entertainment venues.





Hydropolis

Hydropolis The Hydropolis is the world's first underwater resort and is located 66 feet below the surface of the Persian Gulf. The Plexiglas walls and bubble-shaped dome ceilings give guests amazing views of underwater life.




 

The Palm Islands

The Palm Islands The Palm Islands are the world's biggest man-made islands and form the shape of a palm tree when seen from the sky. The complex houses a variety of tourist attractions like spas and theaters, as well as residential homes.





Dubai Mall

Dubai Mall Attention mall rats! There are plenty of places to scope out hotties at this five million square foot mall, since it's the biggest mall in the world! This ultimate mall will house 15 smaller malls within it, as well as a skating rink, an aquarium, and the planet's biggest gold market.





The Dynamic Tower

The Dynamic Tower This amazing building is straight out of a science fiction movie and is due to be up and running by 2010. The Dynamic Tower will be the world's first moving building! The 80-story tower with revolving floors give the building a shifting shape, and will house 80 different suites and will never look the same twice, according to developers.

I wanted to let you know that it is ok to be a lesbian. However, I do not want you to think of just being the word.

Maybe you practice a religion that says that lesbians and gays are bad, I am just assuming this. So, try again to talk to your parents and ask them why they don't like you being a lesbian. Maybe then you can work something out. But never change who u r.

Popping an eyeball out is technically almost impossible. There are several things connected to the eyeball, 6 things if I'm correct, and that is almost a complete myth.
