Reason #937 we need a revolution. Air-conditioned beaches

The Versace fashion house plans to build a refrigerated beach at their planned opulent hotel in Dubai.

“We will suck the heat out of the sand to keep it cool enough to lie on,” he said. “This is the kind of luxury that top people want.”

Dubai also serves as the region’s criminal crossroads, a hub for smuggling, money laundering, and underground banking.

How thoughtful of them, now one will be able to lie on the air-conditioned sand despoiling the environment while having their money laundered and despoiling the financial world.

Well, maybe not…

As the US and Europe slide deeper into economic failure, you can bet that the impact on the rest of the world will be much harsher than what is going on here (that includes China, just wait). Likely the worst hit will be the Islamic world.
