Planned Pyramidhood

Dubai is, um, a little different. They’re pandering to the New Religion, and the consequences are hilarious!

They’re now going to build an eco-pyramid, 4000 feet high and capable of housing 1,000,000 people. It will, of course, be carbon-neutral, and take up 2.3 square kilometres.

After all, who doesn’t want to live in a thing called a Ziggurat?

    A good question to ask is how they’re going to get the Jews to build the Pyramids. Egypt can teach them all about how to capture Jews and make them your slaves to build pyramids. I imagine Jews in the United Arab Emirates would be quite rare…

    Tim, I’m glad you liked it! I spent about 5 minutes coming up with what to title this one.

    zig-gu-rat noun (in ancient Mesopotamia) a rectangular stepped tower, sometimes surmounted by a temple. Ziggurats are first attested in the late 3rd millennium bc and probably inspired the biblical story of the Tower of Babel (Gen. 11:1–9).

    Humans continually attempt to rebuild the Tower of Babel. It’s the universal constant of civilization.

    I’ve been reading about all the fantastical ultra-rich offerings in Dubai (like their palm-shaped man-made islands, and their mega-luxury-hotels), and I keep thinking, “One freak storm would wipe them out”. But apparently, being on the Persian Gulf, they are safe from earthquakes and tsunamis, and apparently the vagaries of the weather. So. That’s all very well and nice for the ultra-rich. Where do the staff live, and are they rich too, and where can I get a job?

  7. Angus Dei Says:

    Or, if you are Jewish: Jews are not allowed into Dubai. Russian prostitutes are, however.

    That certainly looks very cool. Dibs on the penthouse.

Well, SAY something...
