Dubai's giant fountain

Dubai is not a place for the subtle. Fancy cars, conspicuous wealth, ginormous hotels...and now, the world's biggest fountain.

The new $281 million water thingy will open in 2009. It will be able to shoot 22,000 gallons of water 450 feet into the air. And, it will have over 6,000 lights and 50 projectors to make it look real purty.

Well, I guess you have to spend your money on something.
