Speaking Of Dubai...


Previously, I posted the video Slaves of Dubai.

Now comes this bizarre information about Dubai (hat tip to Infidel Bloggers Alliance):
Without Trucks, the Tallest Building In the World Would Become the Tallest Mountain of Poop

...The tallest skyscraper in the world defies belief. Today I learned something that also defies belief: all the poop produced there has to be removed by trucks.

Let's do the math here....163 habitable floors.  It's designed to hold 35,000 people at any given time. Now, humans produce 100 to 250 grams (3 to 8 ounces) of feces per day. Let's say 200 in this case, since these people are well fed. That's 7,000,000 grams per day. Seven tonnes of poop per day. Now, add human-produced liquids (pee, bathing, cleaning their teeth...) and the water to push the poop down its miles of sewage pipes. I think a very conservative total would be 15 tonnes of sewage per day.

That's a lot of poop.

And all of it has to be removed by trucks. The trucks take all this poop to a sewage treatement facility outside of the city. It's the same with most skyscrapers in Dubai, according to Kate Ascher, author of The Heights. Talking to Fresh Air's Terry Gross, Kate said that these trucks are in a permanent line waiting to get into the sewage treatment plant, waiting up to 24 hours before they can unload their crap...
The poop trucks in Dubai:


The video blurb at YouTube states the following:
Footage of a line of full sewage trucks waiting to 'dump their loads' near Academic City in Dubai. These guys must cue for hours/days!!! They are paid per collection, so it's no wonder that some of them dump their loads illegally in the industrial estates or in the desert in order to get more collections!
Poor planning, huh? After all, poop happens.

  1. I'll bet I could have gone the rest of my life without needing to know that, but now that I do, I may as well comment.

    We FINALLY found someplace shittier than Washington D.C.!!!!!

  2. Boy, THERE's something most of us don't give much thought to (thankfully!)
    Poor planning, indeed!

    Dubai...looks just like Detroit in the once-great country of America, huh? You all know what Dubai looked like when Detroit was mostly habitable.......a pile of poop with NO buildings..camel poop!

  3. Alright, the tallest and the poopiest. Only in the middle east would people rather hug their poop than a pig.

  5. So what you you're saying is that The World's Tallest Building is really The World's Biggest, Tallest, Fanciest, Most Expensive Outhouse Ever Constructed.

    Allah be praised! Only the Arabs could devise anything as incredibly stupid as that.

    If they'd built it over The World's Largest, Deepest LIME PIT, all that carting away by truck would have been unnecessary.

  9. And I bet the poor souls who have to do the removal are not the natives if you get my drift.

  10. The whole problem is that the place is built on sand over bedrock. No drainage. They get all their water from desalination plants right there beside the city, so dumping all that poo into the drink would be totally non-halal. You'd have cryin' imams and shrieking sheiks screaming UNISLAMIC!

    Still, getting rid of the treated sewage must be a huge problem of its own. What goes in, in one form, comes out the same amount, in different forms, and as serious as the muzzies are about left hand to wipe and right hand to eat, even the treated stuff is still untouchable for them. Where do they put it, and how much longer can they put it there before they have to find a new place to put it, and then none of them can ever go there again. Betcha all the sanitation workers are from non-islamic countries.

    Well, as Betty Boop used to say, "Poop poop a doo".

  11. Not surprisingly that their islamic are fond of inconveniencing us nonbelievers with their irrational whims and fancies or rather obvious filthy islamic characteristics.

  12. Black Sheep,
    Betcha all the sanitation workers are from non-islamic countries.

    I tried to find information about that but was unsuccessful.

    However, I think that what you stated is likely the case. Muslims have several phobias related to handling excrement.

  13. How could they have problems handling excrement when they ARE excrement?

  14. If they can get all the crap hauled out of Dubai why can't we even get it cleaned out of of the office of the POTUS and the Senate?

  15. AOW,
    Indeed, they are noted to have phobia with anything they they deemed is unclean.
    They rather have slaves to clean out their filthy environment. Perhaps, that is the reason, why their islamic influenced environment are mostly forever in a filthy state or in decay in such a short period of time.

    Dick Wilde,
    Well said.

    Warren,
    It would be better if those moslems can clean themselves out of the western world.

    By the way, AOW, I have trouble accessing your blogsite and have difficulty posting comments to your site. Hope my this reply can be posted without much problem.

  16. WLIL,
    Blogger has been burping lately. Are the problems you've been having with my site recent?

    Last night, I was telling one of my friends about this blog post. She howled with laughter at the folly of the rich Arabs of Dubai.

  17. AOW,

    Previously I have problems accessing your site and recently, it occur again.
    I hope I will be able to continue to access your site, but we just have to see.

    hopefully, we don't have to be afraid of those intimidating rich arabs tyrants that remained backward and horrible, no matter how many big buildings they have.

  18. WLIL,
    If the Shelfari feed continues to be wonky, I'll remove it.

    My site does seem to require high-speed access.
