Scent of a product

Post by Mark

playdoh perfumeDid you ever want to smell like chocolate chip cookies or bubble gum? Do you like the smell of saw dust and wished you could smell like it? How about lobster, did you ever wish you could smell like lobster?

The reason I am asking is because I just found this site via BoingBoing that sells all these weird scents as perfume. They have a really huge list of weird perfumes including the smell of leather, paperbacks, applepie, paint, popcorn and more stuff. I think I would be interested in the Gin&Tonic perfume.. [Link]

Executions Live

Post by Mark

Execution by hanging

Five people just got executed today morning for crimes ranging from rape to drug smuggling. The interesting thing is it turns out I could see the hangings from my office window. I used the office camera with a 120mm lens to zoom in as much as I could onto the hanging yard and if you look at the picture, on the left side you can see people wearing black. I think this picture was taken after one of the people got hanged because you can see the trap door open and some people dressed in black underneath it… [Picture]

How to Exercise Your Eyes

Post by Mark

My eyes have recently started burning when I sit in front of the computer screen because I think I need to update my eye glass subscription perscription prescription. I spend too much time working in front of the computer screen so when I found this page on how to exercise my eyes I was like cool shit. Its not something I would do at work since I would look really weird doing these exercises but maybe when I am alone at home.. [Link]

Post by Mark

Where was this 2 years ago when I really needed it. Only translation options I had back then were Ajeeb and Almisbar and both had a membership fee to use.

Pictures from Spider Man 3

Post by Mark

I don’t care much about the movie, and I really didn’t find any of these pictures interesting.. except for Spider Man’s costume. Now thats just fucking amazing, this is the shot I am talking about [Pic]. If I had that suit I would walk around Salmiya on a Thursday night picking fights with strangers. [Link]

Salmiya now on Google Maps

Post by Mark

Maps.Google.com recently got updated with new high resolution images and Kuwait gained from it. For example Salmiya no longer is a blur on the map, the images are pretty good quality. Also I found a military base which was previously also blurred out. Check it out.

The One Source

Post by Mark

THE One source

I was just looking for an image on Photodisc.com when I came across an image that looked very familiar. I think I found the image that was used as a starting point for one of THE One’s adverts. Its common for agencies to use a stock image during presentation and then go shoot the advert once approved but this ad I believe won some sort of recognition which I now think they shouldn’t have received since its basically a copy of a stock photo.
