Awesome display. I saw a documentary on Discovery Channel (I think) about the building of the island. Sick *****.

Were you unable to find a story about penises today?

There's a new story just up on the BBC front page about too much hairspray giving your sprog a damn funny penis. Bit of an oops for female hairdressers. My baby brother has that. (hypospadia)

I could post some hypospadia pics, but it might turn the stomachs of our more delicate readers...

What a waste of money."Money", what's that? They just give people bits of paper with funny pictures on it, and get awesome stuff in return. Buildings, cars, planes, parties...

Beautiful place but a little too pricey at the time for most travelers. I too saw the documentary on the building of the island.

A spectacular light show was put on at the unveiling of the new $1.5bn marine-themed facility built off the Gulf coast on an artificial island in the shape of a palm tree.

Organisers claimed that the fireworks display for the $20m party could be seen from space.

Oof!

Absolutely beautiful, but a tad excessive and expensive.

Wow.

That was incredible!

I guess they have the money, so more power to 'em.

I remember that Discovery Channel documentary as well. Such an unreal undertaking.

Was this the smaller or larger island? I remember they had two palm-tree shaped islands and then were also creating a range of islands shaped like the continents of the world. They were selling some of those islands to individuals.

Watched that from the roof of a friends house. It was damn spectacular. The videos/photos don't do it justice.

The sky it up, it was a-m-a-z-i-n-g!
