Instead, Archie finds out and rushes to her side at the hospital.He may have been a backwards son of gun, but when it came down to it, he truly had love for Edith – and isn’t that what Christmas is all about? The Cosby Show – Getting to Know You This isn’t explicitly a Christmas episode – in fact, many fans of the show maintain the series never had one – but the episode delivers two very holiday moments.
It’s basically a Christmas miracle with Peter Pan collars. When Frasier brings his new girlfriend and her mother over, he promises to pretend to be Jewish so he doesn’t upset her mother, obviously this ruse fails in traditional sitcom style and Frasier witnesses his girlfriend and her mother fight, come to a realization, and make up.Eventually, a group of neighborhood kids comes by to bestow an award for the best Christmas decorations in Bel-Air to the Banks and their “eye-sore” because it has the whimsy of a child’s idea of Christmas.The HOA gives up the fight and Will chips away at another snobby Bel-Air tradition.In his opening monologue, Baldwin is visited by John Goodman as the ghost of Christmas future; he sees Jimmy Fallon hosting the show in 2011 and making fun of Baldwin. The Bob Newhart Show – His Busiest Season Rather than focusing on the togetherness of a family at Christmastime, this episode of the long-running sitcom found Bob taking his role as a psychiatrist to a new level.This Christmas Carol parody is particularly significant, because in December 2011, it all came true. When he and his wife realize something is missing from their Christmas – despite the giant pile of presents they’ve lined up for each other – Bob invites his therapy group full of people who hate the holidays.At the same time, Dan bonds with Becky’s husband as they work together to put up the gaudiest, cheesiest, “white trashiest” Christmas decorations they can muster in protest to the neighborhood’s new “white twinkle lights only” rule. The Flintstones – Christmas Flintstone Christmas needs just a few elements to feel homey: Santa, reindeer, and togetherness. How I Met Your Mother – How Lily Stole Christmas This take on the classic story also turns the push and pull of Marshall and Lily’s romance on its head.
This Flintstones episode offers all of these things, except that Fred is Santa (filling in for the Big Guy when he comes down with a cold), the reindeer are rein-dinos, and Fred almost misses his own Christmas when he spends all night sprinkling every city in the world with Christmas presents. As Lily is prepping the apartment for her first Christmas since her reunion with Marshall (after she ran away to San Francisco and broke his heart), she hears an old message from Ted in which he calls her a Grinch.
“They tune it just like a musical instrument so that the harmonics of the building don’t coincide with the harmonics caused by the wind…. So if you want in, you better hurry; 90 percent of the 900 residences (not including the soon-to-open Giorgio Armani-designed hotel) have been sold.
We tune it so that on the floors where people are going to be, you don’t feel it that much” [CNN]. Before all those floors fill up with people, Burj Khalifa has an empty weight of 500,000 tons. Related Content: DISCOVER: 20 Things You Didn’t Know About…
A tower in Dubai that opens today has earned the title of world’s tallest building with a height of 2,717 feet (828 meters). Actually, it grabbed that title during construction back in July 2007 when it passed Taipei 101, which stands 500 meters tall. Until its official opening today, the building’s exact height was a closely held secret known by only a few people. The tower, which had been known as the Burj Dubai, was renamed the Burj Khalifa, in honor of Sheik Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the president of the neighboring emirate Abu Dhabi. Speaking of the acrophobia inducing elevator, it travels at speeds roughly 40 miles per hour (65 kilometers per hour) and reaches the observation deck in about 2 minutes. Once at the top, visitors can enjoy temperatures that are nearly 15 degrees cooler than at the building’s base. Dubai is built in the middle of the desert, so to withstand the UAE’s 120-degree blistering summer heat the tower is covered with 24,348 cladding panels. Many skyscrapers are built to bend with the wind—the Burj, which will be exposed to strong desert winds, more than others.
The building’s architects, Chicago-based Skidmore, Owings, and Merril, speculated last week that someone might try to steal the thunder from the big announcement by measuring the building’s shadow to figure out its height. According to lead architect George Efstathiou, “the building is tuned to sway slowly so your middle ear doesn’t pick it up,” Efstathiou explained.
He tries it with his own father, who’s upset over Frasier vetoing his kitschy Christmas decorations, and they fail miserably.
