Fill 'er Up!

No, this is not some lavish desert hotel, but a private home owned by the family of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the former President of the United Arab Emirates, and ruler of Abu-Dhabi.



The Audi A8 in Silver was made for a sheik. It is not only silver in color, but is actually made of silver.

I'm going to remember these pictures the next time I fill up my gas tank, at nearly three dollars per gallon...how about you?

It must be nice to have money.

I would bet that every memeber of that family wakes up in the morning and still finds something to complain about...

I see sterile impersonal wealth and not a sign of "family" anywhere.

I think it's about time for an alternative fuel source. With the technology today, you can't tell me someone can't develop a more earth friendly alternative to fossil fuels. Then let the Middle East wallow in their useless oil.

hermit...I wouldn't know, but if I had that kind of money, I still wouldn't live like that. I'd be in a log cabin on top of a mountain somewhere, or in a stucco hacienda in the desert southwest, or nice house by the ocean, or any large body of water. Heck, I'd have all that, if I had that kind of money, and would share with my friends and family, so they could live lots of places, too!

vin..well, yeah, but I guess it's all relative..different mindsets from the average person. What I am wondering, is if they have ever been in every part of the entire house. It looks cold and uninviting to me, but probably not to them.

rockync..they probably could develop something, but it is a dream to think that they ever will.
