Did you attend this? If you did, then it's New Years Day and you're sitting in your chair watching a little TV while listening to a little music.

Well they didn't display my one billion dollar singularity, so I guess ...well, at least they tried and it was not bad.

Of course, and I flew UAE Airlines ultra-first class as always.

Every time I hear about Abu Dhabi I recall the hadith (saying) of Prophet Mohammed where he is asked by the angel Gabriel about Islam and the Last Days.

One of the premonitions he relates about the signs of the end times is "that you will find barefooted, destitute goat-herds vying with one another in the construction of magnificent buildings ".

I think of Dubai. What was the daily wage again, 6-7 euros ?

Is it just me, or is the world's most expensive office chair also the world's most hideous?

No. Not quite.

Of course, and I flew UAE Airlines ultra-first class as always.

I've flown in those Emirates first class "suits" a few times (it's just first class but on the newer planes they have those suits rather than normal first class seats). They are cool, but even better is the new entertainment system (which is available on the whole plane) which has hundreds of films, TV shows and albums available on demand.

Awesome link, WGP. Turns out that the unique "vomit flower" pattern on the world's most expensive office chair isn't nearly as bad as I thought.

EndsofInvention: EVA Air has something like that as well for even cattle class (linux based on-demand games and movies with a slick little remote and interface).

What a bunch of useless gits. They'll undoubtably be the first up against the wall when the revolution comes.
