Dubai building world's largest, fanciest fountain

Dubai isn't a city known for doing things subtly. No, when Dubai does something, it does it bigger, better, and with way more money than anywhere else in the world. Which is why it's no surprise that its new fountains are going to put every other fountain in the world to shame.

Costing a whopping $281 million, the new fountains will shoot water 450 feet into the air and pump 22,000 gallons of water through it at any given time. 6,600 lights and 50 projectors will shoot video and images onto the spray as its in the air, making it a remarkable sight, especially seeing that it'll be installed in the middle of the desert. It should be complete sometime next year, if you're a fountain enthusiast and want to go check it out.
