First of all, have you guys spent much time looking into the crazy exploits of Dubai’s tourist industry?  They recently BUILT an ISLAND that is shaped like a palm tree, just for shits and giggles.  Well, not really.  They’re actually very intelligently planning for the day when their oil runs out, and they need something else to sustain their economy: tourism.  

 

The entire island is man-made.

In any case, tomorrow (or, I suppose, today – over there at least), a new hotel is opening that costs $25,000 a night to stay in.  

 

In typically over-the-top Dubai fashion, they have imported dolphins, sharks, and all kinds of other marine animals for a huge aquarium that’s in the lobby of the hotel.  How cool is that!?
