Paintball Guns at Ace

Post by Mark

I noticed that Ace Hardware now has a small display of paintball guns for sale. They’re carrying the Tippmann brand along with gas canisters and paintball pellets. Imagine if kids started using them on National Day instead of foam cans…

MILSIM at Shaab Park

Post by Mark


[YouTube]

I’ve posted about MILSIM before [Here] and [Here] but in case you missed it MILSIM is short for military simulation. It’s an outdoor activity where unlike paintball you use very realistic weapons and the game focuses more on strategy than running around shooting randomly. Anyway they’re now open in Shaab Park, I haven’t been there yet but you can see a bit of the place in the video above in which they demonstrate some of the weapons you get to use. If you need more information you can visit their website [Here]

Flight Experience

Post by Mark

I just found out about this new activity from a forum user. Flight Experience is a company that allows you to experience flying in the cockpit of a Boeing 737. The cockpit is very realistic and provides you with a 180° view of the outside world. You can choose to fly in out of 24,000 airports and you can even fly around famous landmarks like London Bridge or the Sydney Opera House. The sessions vary in length and are either 30mins, 45mins, 60mins or 90mins and each session is led by a trained flight simulator instructor (most of whom are actual pilots).

The sessions start from KD39 and they are currently in the soft launch phase and are preparing for their full opening sometime by the end of the month. You can also get a video of your flight plus a picture of you in the cockpit (at an extra cost). The picture on top of this post is of the actual flight simulator cockpit.

Flight Experience is located on the last floor of 360 right on top of TGIF. Here is a link to their website [Link]

Thanks Burhan

We’re in!

Post by Mark

As I mentioned last month, me and my friends (zDistrict, Nibaq and K.theKuwaiti) entered Red Bull’s Flutag. This year there were over 100 teams who entered but in the end they had to choose around 35 I think and our team was one of them. They just dropped off a box of Red Bull along with a welcome letter and a pilot license. I guess they liked our previous plane design (pictured below) and want to see how we can improve on it the second time around.

Robot Unicorn Attack Hands-On for the iPhone from Eli Hodapp

Currently addicted to this fantastic game that’s recently been released on the iPhone called Robot Unicorn Attack. Great soundtrack and just completely absurd style and game play. If you don’t have an iPhone you can still play the original game for free online by clicking [Here]

Caribou Can’t Dance

Post by Mark

Seems the dance off is on. Last week I posted a video of local McDonalds employees doing a pretty impressive dance routine and this week Caribou Coffee have their own video up. So which video is better? McDonalds without a doubt. Lets wait and see who will challenge them next. [YouTube]

The girl in the red hat

Post by Mark

I posted last week about this Crest competition that’s currently taking place and how all of us together could help a random girl who never had a chance to win this competition actually win it. All that needed to be done was for everyone to visit a link and click on a button and that’s it. No signing up or registering your email or anything like that, just one click and your vote would go through. The response was terrible since the girl has only 800 votes. Not enough to come in first.

So take 5 seconds, click on the link at the end of this post and then click on the button “Like” under the girls picture. You can vote for her on a daily basis even. Together we can make her dream come true (do you have tears running down yet?) Here is the [Link]

Let’s help this girl with the funny red hat become a star

Post by Mark

In Lebanon there currently is a campaign for Crest toothpaste where they’ve setup a website in which girls could upload their pictures smiling and the girl that gets the most votes wins and ends up on the cover of a magazine called Femme. I was checking the most popular list and notice the girl currently in first place has just 2,700 votes and realized we can have some fun with this. Basically 2,700 votes is nothing, I think with your help we could make any girl win this competition easily. So after a friend of mine spent some time flipping through the contestants we found the girl above with the red hat and we’re going to help her win.

Take 5 seconds of your time and vote for this girl. You don’t need to sign up or anything just visit the link at the end of this post and then click on “Like” under the girls picture and that’s it. You can do this once a day. Lets have some fun and make this girl with the red hat win. Here is the [Link]

Archery at Discovery

Post by Mark

I passed by Discovery Mall with some friends from work to have lunch and noticed they had an archery section set up. Turns out for this month only you can go and shoot arrows at fake deers, beavers and bears. The setup is pretty nice and the price is KD1 for 6 arrows. Discovery Mall is located right next to the ice skating rink.
