How the Big Money of the world ever really bought into palm shaped artificial islands, 2000 foot tall skyscrapers and indoor ski slopes in the middle of friggin bumfark arabia I'll NEVER understand. Never made sense to me. This makes sense. On top of which, Dubai has no oil to sell. I mean, go figure. Nothing underscores the madness of the recent economic bubble quite so much as this. I watched that stuff in Dubai over the last couple of years thinking 'oh, this won't end well'. And it hasn't.
