We got this game yesterday from Sultan Center to play at work and the game really sucks. Its complicated and not fun at all. We ended up creating our own game with our own rules because the original was so crap. On the bright side it costs only KD3.750.
If you are running a blog and are getting a decent amount of visitors you can cash-in by placing banners on your site. One easy way to get banners on your site is with DartMedia who are based in Kuwait. They pay up to KD3 for every 1000 impressions their banners get. So if you get 1000 visitors a day thats KD93 a month. Both Kuwaitism and Zaydoun have been using them for a while now so DartMedia must be treating them well or else they would have stopped using them ages ago. If you are interested in having banners on your site you can go apply on DartMedia’s website. Here is their link. [Link]

Found this via Hilaliya, some teacher who was living in Kuwait in the 80s scanned some old pictures he had taken here and uploaded them to his flicker account. Some cool stuff, Kuwait really hasn’t changed much. [Pictures]
Two years ago I read somewhere that Ewan McGregor was going to ride a bike around the world. I didn’t think much of it then and totally forgot about it until a few weeks ago Marzouq mentioned Long Way Round on his blog. Turns out Ewan McGregor took cameras with him on the trip and he turned his adventure into a documentary. So right after I read Marzouqs post I download the series from the Internet and I watched it none stop for 2 days.
Long Way Round is a documentary that is 7 episodes long and it takes you on an adventure with Ewan McGregor and his best friend Charley Boorman on a 151 day journey from London all the way to New York. They headed East from London through a couple of countries in Europe, then they headed into Russia, Kazakhstan, Mongolia then Russia again followed by Siberia where they then took a plane to Alaska. From Alaska they then rode down to Calgary and then down into the US until they reached New York. It was a really incredible and extremely exhausting journey. Mongolia for example has only 80 miles of tarmac so the majority of their ride was on gravel and offroad.
It was really fun to watch the documentary and by the end of it you just want to quit your job, go out and buy a bike and then travel the world on it. I was really disappointed when it finished and I really wished it was longer because it felt like I was with them on their adventure. My final rating is easily a 5 out of 5. The only other series I have given a full 5 stars to is Band of Brothers so its not a score I give out easily unless its really worth it.
