The Burj Al Arab is a luxury hotel located in Dubai. At 321 metres (1,053 ft), it is the second tallest building used exclusively as a hotel. The Burj Al Arab stands on an artificial island 280 metres (919 ft) out from Jumeirah beach, and is connected to the mainland by a private curving bridge. It is an iconic structure, designed to symbolize Dubai's urban transformation and to mimic the sail of a boat. The hotel cost $650 million to build. Burj Al Arab characterizes itself as the world's only "7-star" property. Despite its size, the Burj Al Arab holds only 28 double-story floors which accommodate 202 bedroom suites. The smallest suite occupies an area of 169 square meters (1,819 sq ft), the largest covers 780 square meters (8,396 sq ft). It is one of the most expensive hotels in the world. The cost of staying in a suite begins at $1,000 per night; the Royal Suite is the most expensive, at $28,000 per night.
Funny picture selection about how people accidently or on purpose were taken on photos and spoiled it ) It’s really hilarious. Such pictures are very popular on the web. I gathered the best of them. If you like it, I’ll do the second part tomorrow.
Miniature Wonderland (German: Miniatur-Wunderland) is a model railway attraction in Hamburg, Germany and the largest of its kind in the world. As of January 2008, the railway consists of 11,000 metres (36,089 ft) of track in H0 scale, divided into five sections: Southern Germany, Hamburg and the coast, America, Scandinavia and Switzerland. Of the 4,000 square metres (43,056 sq ft) of floor space, the model takes 1,500 m2 (16,146 sq ft).
By 2014 the exhibit is due to double the number of sections to ten; the next section covering an airport, is due to open in 2009. The exhibit includes 900 trains made up of 12,000 carriages; 300,000 lights, 200,000 trees and 200,000 human figures.
All this can be seen in minor details. And judging by many photographs from there it is even hard to say that this is only a miniature, it looks very plausible.
I never understood people who did such things to themselves. But everyone sees things differently. Maybe they try to express themselves this way or just want to be noticed. In my opinion, it’s not pretty at all and can be harmful. More pictures after the jump.
Hello! This week we are going to do different improvements on the site. We have lots of interesting ideas. Now it’s time to look Curiosities.
Let’s talk celebrities.
Why is it good to be Ashton Kutcher? Only because you could do such shots with Demi Moore. Clickable. Taken from actor’s Twitter.
Why is it good to be Bruce Willis? Because everything seems to be possible. To marry at 54 to a 30 year old girl is not a problem ;) Rumors are that this beautiful lady on the photo is the future wife of Bruce Willis.
I wonder sometimes. Are there only two types of states in which Amy Winehouse can be: drunk or high.
The owner of this apartment is one old man. He gathered trash on the streets and brought it to his apartment with hope to find something interesting. I’ve never seen such thing before. You can get sick only by looking at the photos.
