Exclamation Supply and Demand?

Wonder what the lift tickets cost?

Subject: Skiing in the desert
AN ENGINEERING MASTER PIECE IN DUBAI

Pics:
Construction phase...
All finished. Notice the palm trees outside..........
Inside views...

Remember, this is in the middle of the desert.... The very HOT desert where temperatures get up to 120 degrees.....

Unbelievable! But true.....

Why is gasoline $2.39 a gallon for regular unleaded?????? Supply and demand??? That must be it.... we want them to supply us with the oil and they demand that we pay the price!

... Dubai'ies are 'on our side'...(and in the middle east, it's (decadent plutocracy)slowly spreading) - don't tar them all with the same brush - there are 'goodies' and 'baddies' in all peoples - unfortunately, a very small minority of 'baddies' can cause haddock !!
