Kuwaitis are Racist?

Posted by Mark

Nibaq just gave me a link to a blog of a dickhead who seems to be really pissed at Kuwaitis because they don’t want to be his friend. He thinks Kuwaitis are the most hypocritical, racist, godless, backward country he has ever seen! Whats worse is the comments of some Kuwaitis that agree with him! [Link]

Update: This is a picture of Michael Cornn the dickhead. [Link]

Door Knocking Bear

Posted by Mark

This is really funny, Animal experts in Croatia say a bear has learned how to trick people to let him in by knocking at the door. They believe the 35-stone brown bear probably learned the trick while nudging a door to get it to open. Experts speculate the nudging was mistaken by the owners for knocking and that the bear, pleased by the outcome, repeated the tactic. The Loknar family from Gerovo in western Croatia said the bear had knocked at their door three times and they were now refusing to answer the door. Mum Nevenka Loknar said: “We jumped out the window as he came in through the door and raided the kitchen the first time. “I opened the door and saw him standing there and I didn’t believe my eyes at first, then I ran for it as he walked in as if it was the most normal thing in the world. “Bears are a common thing in the woods around here, but no one has ever heard of a bear that knocks at the door. “The bear is so intelligent it’s incredible. We’ve tried to put up lots of obstacles to stop him coming in, like a wire fence but he still gets through. I wouldn’t be surprised if he knew how to use wire cutters.”

Funniest Scene Ever

Posted by Mark

I think the funniest scene I have ever watched is from Arrested Developement when the family is at the hospital emergency room waiting to see if Buster was ok after he got attacked by a seal and the doctor comes to them with news:

Lucille: How’s my son?
Doctor: He’s going to be all right.
Lindsay Funke: Finally some good news from this guy.
George Michael: There’s no other way to take that.
Doctor: That’s a great attitude. I got to tell you, if I was getting this news, I don’t know that I’d take it this well.
Lucille: But you said he was all right.
Doctor: Yes, he’s lost his left hand. So he’s going to be “all right.”
Lucille: [Jumping on the doctor] You son of a bitch! I hate this doctor!
Lindsay Funke: How do we keep getting this guy?
Michael: Mom, he’s a very literal man.
Doctor: Yes, that’s more the way I would take the news.
