This cracked me up.. [Link]
Was leaving Sultan Center when I spotted these two ads:
A blog with tons of videos taken from Japense TV.
This is what TV is like in Japan. [Link]
Items on Amazon.com that you cannot (or at least should not) buy. [Link]
This is the FUNNIEST trailer I think I have ever watched. I couldn’t stop laughing, I actually had to wipe my tears after I finished cuz I cracked up so much. The movie is coming out at the end of the month and its a horror spoof about sheep in New Zealand turning evil. You have to watch the trailer. [Link]
I was waiting for Marzouq to post about this but he hasn’t still so I am going to post about it first… although it is HIS story.
Today I got an email from Marzouq and he sounded really pissed and depressed. He was vague in his email but it was something about losing a really important bid. I was like fuck, what was he bidding for? I figured something related to work, maybe he was trying to get the rights to Google Kuwait or some fast food chain or something. Anyway a few hours later he gives me a call.
We are talking and he tells me about this charity auction that took place in the US and how they were auctioning off a variety of items like electronics, snowmobiles etc.. I was thinking he probably tried bidding on a limited edition motorbike and he lost. Then he tells me that one of the items they were auctioning off was the chance to appear on an episode of 24 next season! Whoever won the auction would have a role on the show in season 7 and would also get to meet the whole cast and then leave with the episode script autographed by everyone. So I was like ok what happened??
Turns out he had a friend at the auction who was bidding in his place. He told his friend to bid max up to $10,000. Turns out though he had a tough competitor, some wife of a millionaire who according to Marzouqs friend came up to him and told him she wanted to have Jack Bauers babies. She kept bidding against him until past his $10,000 limit. In the end he increased his max bid till he hit around $16,000 but she kept bidding until in the end she won the auction for $21,000.
Its such an insane thing, imagine, a blogger from Kuwait would have been on 24. I would have been really jealous if he had won, but it sucks he didn’t. I know how much it would have meant to him being on the show.
Anyway I think he is going to be pissed now because I posted about HIS experience before he did!
This reminds me of when King Abdullah appeared on Startrek.
update: Here is a link to Marzouqs post with more details! [Link]
A friend sent me a link to the wikipedia entry for the word “Paraphilia” with a simple instruction “You gotta check the list at the end”. So I scrolled down and I didn’t know what I was looking for until I found the strangest thing. Its the “List of paraphilias” with some really strange entries, here are some of my favorites:
Acousticophilia: sexual arousal from certain sounds
Aquaphilia: arousal from water and/or in watery environments, including bathtubs or swimming pools
Coprophilia: sexual attraction to (or pleasure from) feces
Emetophilia: sexual attraction to vomit
Gynophagia: sexual attraction toward eating woman (eating as in food)
Nasophilia: sexual attraction to the sight, touch of human noses
Retifism: sexual arousal from shoes
Sitophilia: sexual arousal from food
Spectrophilia: sexual attraction to ghosts

This is a game of skill and precision. [Link]

Here is another link to a Kuwaiti cop raving, a girl dressed in a Kuwaiti cop uniform dancing and some more Iraqi cops dancing. [Link]
Jazeera Airways seem to have a new version of the clock. If you go to the Jazeera Airways website and check the departure times on the timetable they have flights leaving at 7:60AM. Can someone tell me how that is possible? Here is a screen shot in case they fix it. [Picture]
Thank you for Steve for pointing this out to me.
