Illustration for article titled The Burj Dubai Just Cant Stop Getting Struck By Lightning

A tipster sent along this spectacular photo of the Burj Dubai, the world's tallest, most absurdly ostentatious building, getting struck by lightning. While checking for newness, I noticed something amazing: This happens all the time.

Well, not all the time, since storms aren't exactly a daily occurrence in Dubai. In a way, though, that makes the sheer number of occasions this has been caught on film all the more impressive. Cue neck hair standing on

A proposal: When the hotel finally opens in January, this should be their advertising campaign. --Thanks, Cuyler!
