Anara Tower, Dubai of course

Anara Tower - 125 stories, with a turbine (propeller) - and with the restaurant in the middle of the turbine, of course - is designed for the Dubai architectural wonderland by the British firm Atkins.

There is a "hanging" garden every 27 floors.... and a huge swimming pool. The building is self-sustaining, as most of new projects for Dubai.

I love the "Black Hole Office" video but I'm sorry it had an unhappy ending.

Re: Japanese Toys Resting

Ummm, I am not sure, but I think that the toys are possibly for ADULT MEN if you know what I mean. I believe that the Japanese make them in Anime style as well as more human-like form
