A billionaire Sheikh of Abu Dhabi, Hamad Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan, has carved his name into the desert so big it can be seen from outer space. “Hamad” is two miles long and well over 3,000 feet high. The first two letters, H and A, have actually turned into waterways.
The Sheikh, 63, boasts a 14 billion dollar fortune, second only to the Saudi king’s. He has a fleet of more than 200 luxury cars, which he houses in a replica pyramid, and also owns his own island, Al Futaisi. He enjoys fine dining, long walks on the beach, and carving his fucking name into the side of the planet.
