What's Your Reaction:

(Reuterz - Dubai) Visible from space, Dubai has completed construction of the World's largest structure, the 110 story "Burj Dubai Middle Finger Tower."

The dedication festivities were hosted by Dubai's Sovereign Ruler, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who took the opportunity to simultaneously announce he was suspending payments to the international lenders who financed it.

"We wanted to show the world a great symbol," he said. "You gave us $59 billion in loans and a payment schedule -- and we give you this!"
