Who had the tallest New Year’s Eve fireworks display? Dubai, of course.

That’s a shitload of fireworks on a skyscraper that’s mostly empty.

Photos of Dubai before the oil boom
Before Dubai was flush with oil money, before they were determined to turn the city into a real-life Tomorrowland, Dubai and the UAE was just another tiny Arabian desert country with a small population living in a very similar manner that they had been for hundreds of years.

Crazy New Year’s fireworks display on the Burj Khalifa tower in Dubai

Which is all fine and well, except now the camel racing world is in an uproar over the use of tasers in the robots to make the camels go faster. Call it Robo-Camel-Don’t-Tase-Me-Brobotgate if you will.

Several men that sold the taser camel jockey bots have been arrested, but is it the end of the controversy? What if someone’s using ROBOT CAMELS?

Well… so far, only one of the islands has been rented and the chances are low for anyone else considering that the islands are sinking.
