the world's tallest building

It is so hard to keep up with which is the world's tallest building.

At one stage, it was Malaysia's Petronas Twin Towers, but was overtaken by Taipei 101 in Taiwan. And even that will be shortlived. Once completed, the Burj Dubai will become the world's tallest building.

So the tallest buildings in the world has shifted from the United States, to Asia and soon to the United Arab Emirates.

At one stage a developer was proposing to build the "world's tallest building" in Australia. Thankfully he took his project to Dubai.

*As always, please check out Cooper and Camilla who always have interesting things to say.


I forgot to mention that when Michelle was here, there was a huge huntsman spider on the ceiling in the bathroom above the tub/shower. My human told her that the spider was welcome to stay there and that her name was Marlene, as he felt guilty committing arachnicide a week earlier vacuuming up all her babies.

But Michelle refused to use the bathroom with Marlene there. As she wasn't allowed to murder her, she had to get a dust pan and take her outside. For an arachnophobe (who actually screamed when she saw Marlene), it was rather fun to watch.

Today was another boring day. Last night my human started watching Serenity so I ignored him as it was too hot. He opted to tape Prison Break.
