Aramex Problems in the US

Posted by Mark

Aramex are having problems with shipping out stuff in New York, below is an email from Aramex:

We have received a message from JFK that we are facing some problems with Customs Department as they are currently refusing to let HIGH VALUE shipments out due to some reasons which we are trying to work on with them, therefore we are keeping all shipments of high value In transit until the problem with customs is already solved and then we will update shipments on the system. I apologize for the delay although it’s not from our side but I will keep you posted with the progress of the case. Thank you again for your patience and best regards

My Mohawk

Posted by Mark

Mohawk

So yesterday I finally decided I was gonna get a Mohawk. I went to my Pakistani barber and shared with him my idea expecting him to crack up and call in his buddies to share the laughter with. That didn’t happen, I guess my barber is a real pro because he had no reaction, to him a haircut is a haircut I guess no matter how extreme. So before he started cutting my hair I double checked to make sure he knew what a Mohawk was, I used a lot of hand gestures and a lot of pointing to my hair so there wouldn’t be any miscommunication.

My barber started trimming my hair but he started from the sides and then the back. I was thinking in my head wouldn’t it be better if he started from the front. Five minutes later my Mohawk was done, what a catastrophe. I was right he should have started trimming from the front because now my Mohawk started in the center in the back but by the time it reached the front of my head it had shifted off to the right. My Mohawk was not centered!!

Anyway I looked at it carefully, I knew that my Mohawk was fucked but I wanted to see if it was working or not. Sadly even if he had centered my Mohawk correctly I don’t think it would have worked out since my hair was to short. I think I need my hair to be at least 4cm in length for my Mohawk to work. So now I am thinking of growing my hair till December and when I travel to New York or Montreal I will get my Mohawk done there. At least I had the balls to try it.

Update: Incase it wasn’t clear, I told the barber to remove the mohawk since he had messed it up…
