    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...

    "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.

    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!
