    Burj Al Arab in Dubai. I watched an interesting documentary about its construction.



    See that round thing towards the top? That's a tennis court.

    That hotel is also called the Wave right? I heard on the radio today that it bills itself as a "7-star" hotel, although they have 4-star rooms for those who aren't Bill Gates

    The entire city of Dubai is a publicity stunt.

    Actually if you look toward the back of the photo you can see a safety/maintenance ledge. You're totally safe unless you just throw yourself off.

    Wow. That is fucking dangerous.

    From the blue guy to the edge is probably around 7-8 feet. I could see someone closer to the edge of the green trip in a freak accident and walk backwards a couple feet trying to regain balance.

    Also I don't see how it's possible to score a point and not have the ball fall off the platform.

    So I take it you designed all these houses. Or designed a number of buildings. Given that architecture is your absolute calling.
