Believe It Or Not?

It took 386 million tons of rock in order to completed The World (in Dubai, UAE). The World is a development of 300 man-made islands built off the coast of Dubai. It's purpose to create a map of the world in the form of man-made islands. The only way to get to and from the islands will be by boat or air as there will be no roads leading to the islands, the ultimate in privacy. The cost of the islands average between $15-$50 US million, but the most expensive costs around $250 US million, and if you want to buy one you must be invited to do so. The World was completed on Jan 10 2008.
Believe It.
