KTM Superbike

If you put aside the complicated name, this new KTM Superbike looks like something from the future. This is not a concept bike but its the actual bike which is getting released early next year. I love the sharp angled shape. [Link]

Name this DJ

Posted by Mark

99.7 FM Radio Kuwait

So a friend calls me up and tells me to tune into 99.7 at around 7PM. He tells me there is this DJ, shes new, been on the radio now for maybe 6 months and she sucks really bad, like worse than Dr La Bouche. So I was in the car on the way to have dinner when I decided to turn the dial to 99.7. Once the song Barbie Girl finished playing (yeah they still play it) the DJ came on and thats when I wished Barbie Girl would play again. OK maybe she wasn’t THAT bad but she was bad, she had an annoying voice and she wasn’t make any sense. What is she doing on the air and who is she? Under normal circumstances I would check the official 99.7 website except that their site is still suspended. I did record some of the radio broadcast though using my phone and you can listen to it by clicking [Here]

Environment Friends Campaign

Posted by Mark

EFC

Earlier I posted about the paper bags at the Co-op’s, well the group behind it turned out to be CEC, a local environmentally friendly company. Seems they are running a one month campaign called Environment Friends Campaign which involves different activities including the paper bags at the Co-op’s. So sadly I am assuming that once this one month campaign is over the Co-op’s will be going back to plastic bags. [Link]

Thanks Drunk_n_Gorgeous

OpaqueMenuBar

transparent menu

Just found this great little software that will make the menu bar in Leopard non-transparent. Now if only I can find a tool that swaps out the new dock for the old one. I am seriously not liking Leopard. [Link]

Greener Co-op’s

Posted by Mark

Greener Co-ops

The local Co-op’s are now placing customers items in brown paper bags instead of the usual plastic. The paper bags are made from recyclable paper and are more environmentally friendly compared to the old plastic ones. This is a great move and one that I would have expected from other supermarkets like Sultan Center or Carrefour but not the Co-ops.

10 Commandments of the Mafia

Posted by Mark

Taken from BoingBoing: The BBC reports that when Italian police searched a Mafia boss’ hideout, they found a list of ten rules for proper mafioso etiquette.

1. No-one can present himself directly to another of our friends. There must be a third person to do it.

2. Never look at the wives of friends.

3. Never be seen with cops.

4. Don’t go to pubs and clubs.

5. Always being available for Cosa Nostra is a duty – even if your wife’s about to give birth.

6. Appointments must absolutely be respected.

7. Wives must be treated with respect.

8. When asked for any information, the answer must be the truth.

9. Money cannot be appropriated if it belongs to others or to other families.

10. People who can’t be part of Cosa Nostra: anyone who has a close relative in the police, anyone with a two-timing relative in the family, anyone who behaves badly and doesn’t hold to moral values.

This video was shot in a school here in Kuwait. If we were in the US the students would probably have gotten suspended or expelled. [YouTube]
