    I have to have trees. I mean serious forests of trees. Too much sand does my mind in. It's almost depressingly void of life IMO. I like to see a LOT of green, have a temperate climate and maybe an occasional day of cold and snow and during spring to smell the flowers and woods.

    Perhaps, move back to 10,500 BC - you will see the area as tropical with lush green vegetation and rain....or move forward to another 22,000 years, you may see the same

    How do they expect to pay for the upkeep once their main source of money disappears(oil)?

    True.

    But humans don't like to play, someone is going to want to become the leader.

    I've had the pleasure to visit Dubai twice and it is indeed a surreal place. They're literally building themselves a synthetic paradise out of the desolate desert abyss. I've promised my wife more than once that we'll return on a second honeymoon. Who knows how big it will be when that happens.

    Yeah amazingly all the hard work is been done on the backs of under paid asian workers who themselves would never ever have the chance to set foot into these buildings.once they are complete.
    The contractors who employ these workers are ruthless slave drivers while The local arabs sit in their air conditioned tents drinking tea watching these poor souls build these structures in the scorching heat!!!
    Wonderful ain't it!!!
