  • Local government fail. hahahahahaha

    Our city govt has exhibited it's ability to fail in just about every aspect of running a city, even when choosing a new logo! Emaar is a UAE based global real estate company.

        it gets worse than logos.

        I was looking at a multi-video restore an owner was kind enough to share on the net of a 1969 Porsche 911T. wow. nice humble little Porsche. I get to looking at this certain angled photo of the rear end. no engine or transmission. 3 side bolts for toe and camber, long tubular draglinks, conical fancy shaped to a front crossmember. ... oh my god. that is exactly a round version of my 87 Subarus back end.

        The real secret on some Asian tin cans.. is a european one. I would not be surprised the sudden extinction is for the damn rear end they never mounted correctly. Maybe Porsche could have helped them.

        anyway, the net is good for that stuff.

        the real scary stuff is finding people who act like they know you , your nick, your project etc. Kinda scary. Climbers of the copycat...

            Ha! Normally I would say "some heads are gonna roll", but hey this *is* govt we're talking about. So, promotions are probably in order.

                  what, Dubai doesn't exist either? You're running out of real estate to disacknowledge...

                  it must be terribly confusing in there.

                        Word on the street is that an undergrad graphic arts student provided the new logo.

                        EMAARillo anyone? Almost sounds like a bad joke that went too far!

                          The older I get, the more I tend to believe that government (and that includes private "governments" such as motorsports sanctioning bodies) pretty much ruin everything they touch.

                              That reminds me of someone (shouldn't say whom for reasons of self-preservation) who ordered 1,000 business cards with a misspelled word on them . . . . DOH!
