Astana, the capital of Kazakhstan, will soon become one of the coolest cities in the world. Why, you ask? Because they're planning to build a 500-foot-high "tent" over the entire metropolis to keep it warm in the winter. It'll be made from a special material that absorbs sunlight to give the effect of summer year-round, allowing lucky Kazaks to play tennis and go swimming while the rest of Eastern Europe is stuck bundling up and trudging through snow.
This isn't just a pipe dream, either; UK architect Norman Foster plans to have the project completed in about a year. This is officially the coolest architectural project ever. All of the sudden Kazakhstan just jumped up from about #7,834 of places I want to visit to somewhere in the top 3.
Quoting Borat in the comments will, if not get you an execution, will at least earn you my scorn. Tread lightly.
