Going higher than the Burj Khalifa:

I wonder just how high anyone could feasibly go before they reach an absolute limit. Surely there gets a point where wind loadings etc become too much of a problem let alone the ground bearing capacity. I suppose it you built it out of the same materials a a 787 wing then you could have no end of flexibility but imaging the motion sickness you could suffer!

All right... all right... but apart from better sanitation and medicine and education and irrigation and public health and roads and a freshwater system and baths and public order... what have the Romans done for us?
