Man Etches Name in Sand, Visible from Space

How big an ego do you need to etch your name in letters so large that it’s visible from space?

Pretty large methinks.  Hamad Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan is a 63 year old billionaire belonging to the Abu Dhabi ruling family.  He owns the island with the inscription, Al Futaisi.

The guy has a history of grandiosity.  He once constructed a pyramid.  In a sign of our times, he did not use it to venerate relatives.  Instead, he uses it as a garage for 200 cars.
