Star Trek fans.. be warned

Post by Mark

I read the scarriest news yesterday.. I read that Ben Affleck might be the captain of the next Star Trek movie! I think that would be the worst idea in the history of movies. We don’t want a young pretty boy captain, it would ruin Star Trek the same way Tobey Maguire ruined Spiderman. Patrick Stewart I beleive has been the best captain so far but if they wanted someone younger then they should get Kiefer Sutherland. He would be a good strong captain and they could get Roger Cross, the guy who plays Curtis Manning on the show 24 to be his sidekick Klingon. Then you could have the nurse from Prison Break, she could be the doctor on the ship, and Sawyer from LOST could be the second in command. Wow that would be a good team. [Link]

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]

crappy mcdonalds ad

I don’t think I will ever have McDonalds again because of this extremely cheezy and poor advert. Come on, with all this improvment in advertising in the region this is what McDonalds is advertising? This is what McDonalds in the Arab world thinks is trendy? I can’t think of any brand that would suit this advert yet alone McDonalds! This advert wouldn’t even work for those cheap ass bargain bin stores in Salmiya. I am seriously shocked at how terrible this is. [Larger Picture]

Note: The headline roughly translates to “Keep your taste big”

Review: Hardees Chili Lava

Post by Mark

hardees chili lava

When I saw the new ads for Hardees advertising the Chili Lava I fell in love. I haven’t had Hardees since I started my no fast food diet late last year, but I love Chili and I really love the Chili Hot Dog at Hardees so to have a Chili Burger was like wow! Sadly though the Chili Lava was a disappointment. Don’t get me wrong here, there was nothing wrong with the burger, just don’t expect to get what you see in the picture. The burger looked pretty boring but I liked how they presented it to me.. in a plastic basket covered with a sheet of paper with my curly fries and burger on top. It looked like something you would get at Fuddruckers or TGIF. Taste wise I was expecting it to be wilder but it was pretty normal. I would most probably have the burger again its just that I think their ads over hyped it so I was expecting more flavor. My biggest issue with the burger is the price, the single lave combo costs KD1.550 while the double lava combo costs KD1.750. When did the combos get so expensive? Even the regular Mushroom & Swiss or Roast Beef N’ Chedder combos cost like KD1.400 and I remember the Roast Beef used to always be cheaper then the burgers. Because of the expensive price and the lack of shock and awe I give the Chili Lava a 3.5 out of 5. [Chili Lava Poster]

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]
