World’s tallest building opens in Dubai

In case your recollection of the world’s most ostentatious achievements needs updating, the world’s tallest building, the 818 meter Burj Dubai opened yesterday. It’s way taller than the 508m Taipei 101 tower (that’s in Taiwan for those of you who need your geography updated as well) and the 629m KVLY-TV mast in North Dakota, making it the world’s tallest building, freestanding structure, and man-made structure of any kind ever built on the planet. Cool, in a Frankensteinian, acrophobic way.
