    There's a park near my place and the whole parking lot is that stuff. But it hasn't clustered up yet. I'm scared to drive my car in there and now that fear is legitimized, apparently.

    Yeah I read that while back.

    Interesting.

    Obviously the variety that is abundant in the sahara is no good for construction for some reason.

    Growing up my friends dad had a sand and gravel business. I remember thinking why would anyone pay for sand? Just go out in the desert and get some! Stupid me

    That a gulf state imports sand, doesn't mean they don't have a lot of it. It could just be cheaper using whatever supply lines and companies set up.

    Canada imports oil, for example. Although we have a lot of it.

    I suppose. Right now Saudi is only 12th on the list of top sand exporting countries.
    http://www.worldatlas.com/articles/top-20-sand-exporting-countries.html

    Australia exports sand to Saudi Arabia and UAE, but this is a special kind of sand , one that is silica free and consequently prefered by the sand-blasting industry.
    http://www.foxnews.com/story/2007/06/12/australian-companies-selling-sand-to-saudi-arabia.html

    Austrlia also exports camels to Saudi and other Gulf countries.
