Ski Dubai!

    Bizarre - an indoor ski resort in Dubai! Their energy bill must be unimaginable... 40°C+ degrees outside, -2° inside.

    I watched a Discovery Channel show about this last week. It's pretty cool, they have a mall attached to it as well (although the ski resort is the main attraction).

    Perhaps these investors can be persuaded to build nice warm, bright, indoor beaches in New England?.... After shoveling 12" of "partly cloudy" off the driveway and walks, it might be nice to go hang with some young lovelies and drink a "boat drink" (blatant Buffet plug).
