From today's BBC front page

This piece was highlighted on the BBC front page today.

I'm afraid they are incorrect about Abu Dhabi having the tallest flagpole though...that dubious distinction belongs to North Korea. It will soon however be beaten by one of those Weirdostan countries nobody has heard of - although it will be manufactured by a company in Dubai. This company has built many of the tallest flagpoles, but has vowed that due to the demand in flag-pole-one-up-man-ship and the physics of just how high they can go, they are protecting their future business by only producing poles in 1 metre increments in the future!
