Kids R Us tshirts

Post by Mark

Looks like someone online is selling Kids R Us tshirts (and other random stuff). I think they would have been cooler with maybe Kids R Us written on the back. [Link]

Thanks Adam

Green Grass

Post by Mark

I was at Souk Sharq when I noticed their beautiful grass. It looked perfect all nice and green on a very hot sunny day. But sadly, on closer inspection it turned out the grass was fake, a really good fake. I couldn’t believe it wasn’t real until I pulled up the grass from one of the edges to reveal its carpet like application.

Kuwait’s diplomats no longer the most corrupt

Post by Mark

Some good news, back in 2006 I posted about how Kuwait had the most corrupt diplomats in New York averaging 246.2 parking tickets per diplomat. Well the new 2009 results are out and Kuwait is no longer first, instead they’re second! The Egyptian diplomats now lead the way with the most unpaid parking tickets while Kuwait is following closely behind owing nearly $1.3 million in unpaid fines. Here is the link to the article. [Link]

On a similar note Marzouq posted about the Kuwaiti embassy thats based in the Ritz Carlton in Singapore. Looks like the best place to be if you want to be a Kuwaiti diplomat. [Link]

Note: Stop emailing me hate mail. I wasn’t the person who wrote the article or call the diplomats corrupt. Since those of you who emailed me are too lazy to click the link here is a quotation from the link that explains how not paying your tickets means you are corrupt:

“In a great paper for the National Bureau for Economic Research, two researchers have found that the number of parking tickets that legally-immune foreign diplomats accumulate in NYC and refuse to pay is a great measure of how corrupt their home countries are.”

Direct all hate mail to the New York Daily News, the National Bureau for Economic Research or your diplomats.

New Jazeera Airways Pricing Structure

Post by Mark

I just noticed Jazeera Airways have introduced a new pricing structure. If you want to take advantage of their lowest fare you now need to pay extra if you want to take any kind of luggage with you and if you want to choose your seats you also need to pay extra.

Here is a larger shot of the chart above [Link]
