Didn't you notice on the plane when you started talking, eventually I started reading the vomit bag?

That video from the very top of the spire is insane. I'm not usually bothered by heights, but something about being on top of that tiny point (at least it looks tiny from the ground) puts my hair on edge.

Do they have any kind of high speed elevators in the Burj Dubai? From that last video from Imre it takes 34 seconds to go down 10 floors. Not counting stops for other people, that is over 9 minutes from top to bottom...I hope they work that out, I for one would not want to spend 9 minutes in an elevator.

Yeah, I think they have the worlds fastest elevators but I'm not really sure. I also read somewhere that they had double decker elevators. Again, I'm not sure. We need Fury back to give us the scoop on what going down inside!
