Nats Great Escape

Post by Mark

So Nats got a flight on Jazeera Airways tomorrow that leaves from Damascus. Since morning she has been trying to find a cab that will take her to Syria and she finally called me 15 minutes ago telling me she got one and tomorrow 5AM she will leave her house. Seemed like a good plan until 5 minutes ago Israel bombed her escape route. Now she is trying to find out if there is another route she can take.

Puppets Who Kill

Post by Mark

Puppets who kill

Puppets Who Kill has to be the strangest TV show I have watched in a while. The show is a combination of puppetry and real people and the story is about these four homicidal puppets living in a halfway house with a clueless human social worker. I only watched one episode so far and it was extremely funny and even had a sex scene between a puppet and a real person which I found… weird. The whole show is just “different” like that. If you can get a hold of it from Amazon or Torrents then do so.

What about us?

CNN Biased

The screenshot above is from the CNN main page. The area which I have highlighted in yellow is where they mention an Israeli woman and her grandson got killed and they have it as an important point. Yet they don’t mention the fact that over 60 people in Lebanon (including 2 Kuwaitis) have also been killed. I don’t mind CNN being biased but they shouldn’t make it that obvious…

Drastic US decline in rape

Post by Mark

An interesting article where the author attributes some of the decline in rape to the availability of porn. I think it makes perfect sense. [Link]

Jazeera Airways to the rescue

Post by Mark

jazeera airways

You really have to owe it to these guys, they have done an amazing job so far.

Jazeera Airways is ready to fly travelers with tickets from other airlines to return to Kuwait at NO cost. Travelers must report to Jazeera Airways’ Damascus office with their tickets

Jazeera Airways accepts Kuwaitis with NO tickets at NO cost, with letter from Kuwait Embassy in Damascus

All Beirut flights re-routed to Damascus for 7 days (until July 21). Booked travelers have the option of flying to Damascus (or flying from Damascus to Kuwait), or canceling their flight and receiving credit in the amount of their ticket to be used to any Jazeera Airways destination within 12 months
