Default UAE's world records

Hello,

I've been asked to write some words on life in UAE - and I thought I'd open it with some world records. Sadly, I need help...

So far I have:

Dubai:
- Tallest Tower
- Largest Doner Kebab

Abu Dhabi
- Tallest Flagpole
- Largest indoor theme park(?)

There must be more... I'm just not thinking. These people just must have more pointless trophies to their name!

The mosque has the biggest carpet in the world, or has that been beaten now?

Does the UAE have the most 7* hotels per capita?

Does AD have the greatest oil reserves per capita?

The Blitz has the stickiest floor of any bar I've been in.

Emirates Palace = most expensive hotel? At Christmas it had the most expensive Christmas tree. Most car deaths per capita?

They made the world's largest biryani at Global Village a few years ago.

I also remember the world's longest buffet and I think the longest sandwich.


Odd how I only remember the food related ones...

I bet there is the largest use of aftershave here...

Most expensive handbag

Largest concentration of fake tits

Most 4x4's per capita

Worlds most dangerous road <emirates road)

Most number of abandoned building projects

Most number of brunches held in a city

They all seem quite likely....

No I was still in the foreplay phase...I can't multitask when the main event kicks off. She on the other hand is great at multitasking - she's on the phone during sex most of the time...usually to tell me what hotel she's in and what time she'll be home
