Live On Planet Earth

Is it just me, or does crazy stuff happen in Dubai? Specifically, they're going through an intense building phase, including plans for the world's tallest building, and a series of man-made islands called The Palm Islands. That's cause they're built in the shape of a palm frond.

That's pretty crazy, right? Wrong. Check this out:

That's The World, a cluster of 300 man-made islands made to look like, well, the map of the world. They are bordered to the "North" by a strip of land, and to the "South" by a breakwater.

Rumor has it that Rod Stewart has already bought the England island.
