Qatar invents artificial clouds to beat the heat at 2022 World Cup
Saud Abdul Ghani, head of the mechanical and industrial engineering department, told Gulf News the 'clouds' are made from a lightweight carbon structure carrying a giant envelope of material containing helium gas.

Four solar powered engines move the structure via remote control.

Yes artificial clouds have been around for a very long time, it would raise some eyebrows if they flew over the stadium constantly.

Or maybe like here in Zombieland no one ever looks up, and then if they do they go into denial.

Yup.
All busy choosing the right Zombie Party in time for the Zombie Elections.
Since we have to protect our Zombie competitiveness in the Zombie Union.
So that the Zombie Union stays a major factor in the World Zombie Championships.
So that we can beat the shït some more out of rivals like Bangladesh, Uganda,
Guatemala, Yemen...

Oooops.
Maybe I ought to go find something positive to say about something ;)

Don't you just love the effin' weather..?

Muahhahhahh.

They got the idea from the Simpsons.

Mr. Burns built a shield over the town and blocked out the sun. Then he got shot. lol

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made

True, the heat is brutal during the day in those regions. I wouldn't want to sit in the audience, let along play.

Yet another reason to pray that 2012 is just another year. Most will tune in to see the marvel of the artificial cloud.

I, on the other hand, will tune in hoping to see it fall on top of a couple of soccer teams...

Muahhahhahhah!

Thank God I was born a genuine puckhead.
It's amazing how much more good-natured the hockey culture is.
Not many riots ever around the rink.

That...and you're still young enough to enjoy it when play gets exciting
around the net.
