Kuwait's killers

according to Kuwait Times, Kuwait's 3 main killers are:
1. heart diseases (due to smoking, unhealthy eating habits)
2. cancers
3. road accidents

honestly i thought road accidents would be number 1, not heart diseases - which reminds me, I have to place an order for johnny rockets burgers for tonight's gathering :->

the article ends with this amusing sentence: "The study also mentioned that men died at relatively younger ages when compared to women because of their own faults."

X Rated Getaway

Did any of you know there is a resort somewhere in the Caribbean that provides women with their rooms?

I was as shocked as you are, these women are top notch playboy models, their packages range between 4,000 - 10,000 dollars depending on how many women you want, and of course the size of the room.

I know where i'm going on my next vacation.

Top Universities World Wide

How sad is this? One Arab university in the top 500 world wide, not quite sure where all that oil money is going, but it sure as hell not going to higher education.
Of Course, most of the top schools are in America, yet a lot of Arabs think that America is ready to collapse any day now. I'm, for one, am not holding my breath for that one.

Easy money

roughly translates to: "Kuwaiti female seeking any private sector job with very light (i.e. short) working hours."

and if she meets the right criteria, she might only have to wait for the parliament to stoop enough and pass the bill suggested by 5 MP's which will grant stay-at-home wives 300 kd every month in exchange for doing . . . absolutely nothing

Welcome to Kuwait

in an effort to turn Kuwait into a commercial hub, the ministry of interior is trying to simplify visa procedures and increase the number of visitors:

(...) The officials also said that citizens from five more countries are allowed to enter Kuwait without visas, including Georgia, Bhutan and Vietnam. (Kuwait Times)

how many visitors do we get from Bhutan every year ??

Rich Man, Poor Man

A rich man and a poor man were discussing what they gave their wives for their anniversary. The rich man says, "I bought my wife a diamond necklace and a Mercedes Benz. Poor man asks, "Why did you buy her two gifts?" The rich man replies, "Well, in case she doesn't like the diamond necklace, she can drive her Mercedes Benz to take it back."

The poor man acknowledges the rich mans answer then proceeds to tell him what he got his wife. "I got my wife a pair of flip flops and a dildo." With a confused and intrigued look, the rich man asks, "Why did you buy her those gifts?!" The poor man replies, "Well, in case she doesn't like the flip flops, she can go screw herself."

Design of Cobra Tower Kuwait

This huge tower is supposed to be a construction project in Kuwait.
Some say it is a hoax, others say it is real and that the tower should be completed by 2010.
I'll believe it when I see it.

7 sex hotspots

According to Health 24, these are the 7 sex hot spots.
I still haven't done it in all these locations, but that'll be my mission from now on, any woman care to help me fulfill my mission.

Here is the list with my comments:

7. At your parent’s house
Risk: 10
Difficulty: 8
Pleasure count: 7
(I think everyone has had sex in their parents house, that's the first place you have sex)

6. In your car on a long trip
Risk: 10
Difficulty: 9
Pleasure count: 6
(been there, done that, not too comfortable, but very exciting)

5. The library
Risk: 7
Difficulty: 5
Pleasure count: 9
(The WHAT???)

4. In the swimming pool
Pleasure count: 8
(I must say this one was one of the best places to have sex, specially if it was a public pool, clean public pool. it does get weird at a stage, but pleasure is off the charts)

3. The mile-high club
Risk: 9
Difficulty: 9
Pleasure count: 5
(I need to find someone that would travel with me next weekend so I can try this, always wanted to join the mile high club)

2. On the beach
Risk: 7
Difficulty: 7
Pleasure count: 7
(not as half as fun as people claim, sands gets in places where you don't want it, and that's enough to kill the mood)

1. The sauna
Risk: 2
Difficulty: 2
Pleasure count:10
(I almost had a heart attack, it was too hot, and it took much much much longer for me to finish the job, if you are claustrophobic, this is not were you wanna have sex)

lately on showtime they've been previewing an egyptian movie called ما تيجي نرقص (translates to "let's dance") which is a quasi copy of the 2004 movie "shall we dance." to camouflage the plagiarism they inversed the roles of the husband and wife.


I remember other egyptian movies that are replicas (and not good ones) of american ones, like:
- pretty woman (arabic version = الجينز)
- dirty rotten scoundrels (don't remember the arabic name)
- revenge (arabic version = البلدوزر)

aren't they breaking some kind of copyright law or something ? and the more important question to ask is - can't they come up with their own ideas ?

i mean if u're gonna copy foreign movies, at least pick ones which aren't well-known.

A New York man retired. He wanted to use his retirement money wisely, so it would last, and decided to buy a home and a few acres in Portugal. The modest farmhouse had been vacant for 15 years; the owner and wife both had died, and there were no heirs. The house was sold to pay taxes. There had been several lookers, but the large barn had steel doors, and they had been welded shut. Nobody wanted to go to the extra expense to see what was in the barn, and it wasn't complimentary to the property anyway.. so, nobody made an offer on the place. The NY guy bought it at just over half of the property's worth; moved in, and set about to tear in to the barn... curiosity was killing him. So, he and his wife bought a generator and a couple of grinders... and cut through the welds. What was in the barn?

Update: This post turns out to be a hoax, read it for your entertainment only, but don't believe everything you read. (thanks to Mark for informing iKuwait)

eating disorders have been around forever, but the general attitude about them was that they were illnesses everyone should fight against. today i couldn't help but be surprised at the fact that there are pro annorexia and bulimia support groups all over the net (and on sites including facebook, myspace); these groups/forums not only advocate these eating disorders, but offer advice on how to master them in order to reach ridiculous weight targets of 30kg - 45kg. they look at food and nutrition with utmost contempt, and cheer each other on to sustain what they call a "glamorous lifestyle choice."

out of curiosity i checked out some of the facebook groups mentioned in the bbc article; i found quite disturbing visuals and words.

i guess it's one of the drawbacks of the unmitigated freedom of expression of the miracle called internet.

'Exterminate' your boss

"Can’t stand your boss? Do you stay up at night thinking of ways to ‘exterminate’ your boss without getting caught?"

yes as many of you probably know this is not some criminal advice or sadistic daydream - it's a promotional email from jazeera

... the rest of it:

"Then this SALE is for you! Avoid going to jail, get out of the office and take advantage of our hot new sale starting from KD 3 / AED 39! To sizzling beaches and vibrant metropolitan cities and forget all about him!"

I wonder who's the person behind jazeera's promotion team - someone with a bold sense of humor, or someone with politically incorrect judgement.

PS: it's interesting they assume the evil boss is a "him" ;)

A physician claimed that the following are actual comments made by his patients (predominately male) while he was performing their colonoscopies:

1. "Take it easy, Doc. You're boldly going where no man has gone before!"

2. "Find Amelia Earhart yet?"

3. "Can you hear me NOW?"

4. "Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?"

5. "You know, in Arkansas , we're now legally married."

6. "Any sign of the trapped miners, Chief?"

7. "You put your left hand in, you take your left hand out..."

8. "Hey! Now I know how a Muppet feels!"

9. "If your hand doesn't fit, you must quit!"

10. "Hey Doc, let me know if you find my dignity."

11. "You used to be an executive at Enron, didn't you?"

12. "God, Now I know why I am not gay."

13. "Could you write a note for my wife saying that my head is not up there."

The solution

I finally figured it out, the pill to my illness.
