new car 2

so the poll for the new car has ended, and the bmw 3 series has gotten the most votes, but that's not what i want to get, not anymore, my options changed, but at least i have kept one car on my list, the dodge charger, i know that most of you recommended the beemer, but i cant do bmw's anymore, i want to change, i am now sure that if its not the charger, its going to be a 4 by 4 (jeep or waniet) a nice pimped waniet

i'll be visiting the dodge dealership next week for a test drive, if everything goes well there, i'd still have to pick the colour

Best feeling in the world

when u slip into your warm bed after a long day knowing that u can sleep in the next day

when u have a bite of a delicious looking dessert and it turns out evern more delicious than u thought it would be

when u lie down on the beach with a good book, your ipod, and no worries

when u find money u'd forgotten about in your pocket

when an item you absolutely love turns out to be on sale

when a song u like plays on the radio

when u find a parking spot right in front of the entrance

when your new haircut turns out to be amazing

when u cross the finish line of a marathon

when u wake up at 7am and realize it's the weekend and u can go back to sleep....

And another one

it's interesting how similar these 2 logos are; unlike in this post, this one is probably a coincidence....

or is it ?

Earth Status Report - 2007

If the population of the Earth was reduced to that of a small town with 100 people, it would look something like this?

57% Asians

21% Europeans

14% Americans (northern and southern)

8% Africans

52% women

48% men

70% coloured-skins

30% caucasians

89% heterosexuals

11% homosexuals

6 people would own 59% of the whole world wealth and all of them will be from the United States of America

80% would have bad living conditions

70% would be uneducated

50% underfed

1 would die

2 would be born

1 would have a computer

1 (only one) will have higher education

When you look at the world from this point of view, you can see there is a real need for solidarity, understanding, patience and education?

Also think about the following:

This morning, if you woke up healthy, then you are happier than the 1 million people that will not survive next week.

If you never suffered a war, the loneliness of the jail cell, the agony of torture, or hunger, you are happier than 500 million people in the world.

If you can enter into a church or mosque without fear of jail or death, you are happier then 3 million people in the world.

If there is a food in your fridge, you have shoes and clothes, you have bed and a roof, you are richer then 75% of the people in the world.

If you have bank account, money in your wallet and some coins in the money-box, you belong to the 8% of the people on the world, who are well-to-do.

If you read this you are blessed because:

- you don't belong to the 200 million people that cannot read.

- and you have a computer!

18 & 54

A husband wrote the following letter for his wife and left it on the dining room table:

"To My Dear Wife,
You will surely understand that I have certain needs that you, being 54 years old, can no longer satisfy. I am very happy with you and I value you as a good wife. Therefore after reading this letter, I hope that you will not wrongly interpret the fact that I will be spending the evening with my 18 year old secretary at the Comfort Inn Hotel. Please don't be upset. I shall be back home before midnight."

When the man came home late that night, he found the following letter on the dining room table:

"My Dear Husband,
I received your letter and thank you for your honesty about my being 54 years old. I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that you are also 54 years old. As you know, I am a math teacher at our local college. I would like to inform you that while you read this, I will be at the Hotel Fiesta with Michael, one of my students, who is also the assistant tennis coach. He is young, virile, and like your secretary, is 18 years old.

As a successful businessman who has an excellent knowledge of Math, you will understand that we are in the same situation, although with one small difference. 18 goes into 54 a lot more times than 54 goes into 18. Therefore, I will not be back home until sometime tomorrow."

Brain power

How smart is Your Right Foot?? Just try this. It is from an orthopedic surgeon

This will boggle your mind and you will keep trying over and over again.To see if you can outsmart your foot, but, you can't. It's preprogrammed in your brain!

1. WITHOUT anyone watching you (they will think you are GOOFY) and while sitting where you are at your desk in front of your computer, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles.

2. Now, while doing this, draw the number "6" in the air with your right hand.
Your foot will change direction.

I told you so!!! And there's nothing you can do about it!

The wedding ring - recent story in the local paper:

A man went to the hospital to have his wedding ring cut off from his penis.

According to the Nurse attending, the patient's girl friend found thering in his pants pocket and she got so mad at him, she used petroleumjelly to slip the ring on his penis while he was asleep.
I don't know what's worse:

1) Having your girl friend find out you're married.

2) Explaining to your wife how your wedding ring got on your penis.

3) Or finding out your penis fits through your wedding ring.

he either has huge fingers or a really really small ...............

best X quote

i just watched American History X for the 19th time yesterday, and i must say this movie only gets better the more i watch it, for those who haven't seen it, i strongly recommend it, i'd rate this my number one all time favorite movie

here's the end quote from the movie, which i found very touching

"Danny Vinyard: So I guess this is where I tell you what I learned - my conclusion, right? Well, my conclusion is: Hate is baggage. Life's too short to be pissed off all the time. It's just not worth it. Derek says it's always good to end a paper with a quote. He says someone else has already said it best. So if you can't top it, steal from them and go out strong. So I picked a guy I thought you'd like.

'We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.'"

Shut up and drive

i feel like some songs are made to be blasted in the car, they simply make the drive more

  • hella good
  • i drove all night
  • pump it
  • shut up and drive
  • bad habit

one of my friends once drove into a tram while he was blasting the song Bad Day by Daniel
Powter, and now it always reminds me of him... the irony ;)

this post is dedicated to him......

99.7 Radio Kuwait FM

i've noticed everyone is complaining about 99.7 lately, Mark, The Criticizer, Grey, and myself

and that new DJ Uruj, whats an URUJ?

anyways, heres a little something for all of us haters, i found the live streaming link for 99.7 RKFM

The age rule

in a discussion about what's an acceptable age gap between a man and a woman, one of my male friends said there was a rule:

half the man's age + 7 years and over is acceptable

funnily enough, we tested his theory on couples we know and it made total sense !

for ex harrison ford and calista flockheart (in the picture) seem fine to me, but some other celebrity couples take it to an extreme...

Sometimes I wonder what life's about

Sometimes I wonder why the lights are out
Sometimes I wonder why I like to shout
Sometimes I wonder what the lies are about
Sometimes I see things I shouldn't have seen
Sometimes I wonder why, I'm a hood and a fiend
Sometimes I look at what I've become and cry
Sometimes I get on that bullshit and be ready to die
Sometimes a nigga that's yo' man might get it
Sometimes even though it's sweet if you ain't wit it
Sometimes the pain is too much to bear
Sometimes it rains too much to care
Sometimes if you don't watch yo' back it'll cost you
Sometimes you wonder, who would give a fuck if they lost you

Yet sometimes the sun shines around the clock
But sometimes it's dark, and hell is hot

snap back to reality

there is no downer like the downer i get after coming back from vacation, specially a long vacation like the one i just took, i'm so depressed, please help

my itinerary:

December 25th - Dubai

Dubai is Dubai, i can't get enough of it, seems like every time i go there's something new to see and do, this time i was just plastered during my whole stay

December 31st - Sharm el Sheik
this is my third time to go to sharm, and i still think its a great place to go and let loose, there's something for everyone, although it was quiet chili at night, it was incredible during the day

WARNING: beware of Egyptians
January 5th - back to Kuwait

and now i'm sitting behind my desk contemplating suicide, why does this happen to us every time after a vacation, can't Kuwait be the place we want to go to, i know it will take me 3 days to recuperate, until then ...... bear with my depression
