The dancing Filipino prisoners at it again!

Post by Mark

First they danced to Thriller, then they danced to MC Hammer and now the prisoners are back doing the Macarena. Isn’t dancing to the Macarena counted as a form of torture? [YouTube]

Speedo gear swap

Post by Mark

speedo gear

Tonight I swapped out my Wranglers speedometer gear since the original stock one thats installed wasn’t working properly with my 33inch tires. My speedometer was off by around 10-20km/h and it was also effecting the transmission shift points. Installing the new speedo gear was pretty easy but it felt very claustrophobic under the Jeep. Now I need to figure out how to test the accuracy of my speedometer…

The Olympics

Olympics

I didn’t get a chance to watch the Olympics opening ceremony but after seeing these pictures on Gizmodo I think I need to. From the pictures it looks like the opening ceremony was pretty cool so I am going to try and download the opening now. I need to get live TV at my place, I don’t even have a satellite dish… [Link]

Acer Aspire One

Post by Mark

Acer Aspire One

While I was in Thailand I spotted the Acer Aspire One at one of the electronic stores. The Aspire One was recently released to compete with the likes of the Eee PC and I think its got a pretty good shot at it. For one thing the Acer is around $150 cheaper, I just checked Amazon and the Aspire One is selling for KD100 which is pretty darn cheap. It also comes in different colors, the one I saw was navy blue but if I was going to get one I would probably get the white one pictured above.

MSI Wind

Also today while I was at Carrefour I spotted the MSI Wind which is also competing in the same category. Carrefour had it priced at KD185 but its cheaper on Amazon although its currently out of stock. Here is the link to the Acer Aspire One on Amazon. [Amazon Link]

Escalator Accident

Post by Mark

A strange escalator accident caught on video.
According to the Associate Press:

At least 20 people have been injured after an escalator at a Tokyo convention centre jerked to an abrupt halt. The stoppage knocked down dozens of people. The worst of the injuries appears to be a broken leg.

Note: If you get a error that the video is no longer available then you most probably are on Qualitynet. They’re having weird issues which they will hopefully solve.

Thai Red Bull

Red Bull Thailand

When I was in Bangkok I got to try out the Thai version of Red Bull and I loved it. I am not a big fan of Red Bull but the one in Thailand just tasted wayyy better. Firstly their version isn’t carbonated or at least not the one I had. The Red Bull I had came in a cough medicine like bottle and was actually syrupy like medicine and it even tasted like cough medicine! The only strange thing I found was the fact that it had the Halal logo on the side which meant there was something from an animal inside the drink. Didn’t want to know what, didn’t care to ask. Supposedly there is a store in Kuwait that sells them and I am just trying to find out where so I can get a hold of some. Anybody know?

ProntoWash

ProntoWash

It seems ProntoWash is popping up everywhere. I first saw them in the parking lot of Muthana Complex, I then spotted them in the parking lot of Salhiya, SomeContrast spotted them at Mishref Coop and now they’re also in the Marina Mall parking. It seems like a good idea to have them wash your car while you shop but I wonder how long the queue gets if they can only handle two cars at a time?
