Ned: I'm going to Taipei 101's observatory with my friend later. Do you want to come with me?
Zea: I'm sorry. I have to attend a meeting later. By the way, did you know that Taipei 101 is no longer the world's tallest building?
Ned: What do you mean?
Zea: Burj Dubai, a tower under construction in Dubai, recently became the world's tallest skyscraper at a height of 512 meters, surpassing Taipei 101's 508 meters. The fact is that no skyscraper can remain the highest in the world in perpetuity. Even the Burj Dubai is bound to be overtaken sooner or later.
