A Kuwaiti student studying in Dublin did a timelapse of the place and I must say it’s one of my favorites. It shows you the day to day life and the beauty behind the place. He should do one for Kuwait too. Actually, we should have a timelapse of just the restaurants in Kuwait, since so many claim it’s the fattest country on earth.
If you thought bloggers in Kuwait make a lot of money from blogging (most of them don’t) then you should see how much companies pay to be featured for 5 seconds in a popular Saudi YouTube Show. From the entire list I only watch Eysh Elly from time to time and they make more than $15,000 for every 5 second ad. For an analysis on the prices click [here].
Here are the rest:
I was pretty excited to see when a teaser video was published featuring the German ping pong star Timo Boll and former #1 world wide table tennis player playing against KaKu, the world’s fastest robot. Was disappointed when I saw the match because it was clearly scripted, nothing was real or original. The video is worth watching but it could have been much better.
I brag to non-Arabic speakers that Arabic one of the hardest languages in the world, which it is but not as nearly as this one. They actually have 3 clicks types in Xhosa language, I have no idea how they are spelt in a sentence. I could do the first two roughly, the last one is the hardest of them all.
I haven’t seen a more serious prank before. A prank in Saudi Arabia was done where you wait for an elevator, it opens up and two guys appear to be strangling each other; one of them fighting for his life. Tests how humane you are, some freaked out and avoided the situation, others jumped in to save the persons’ life.
I don’t think I’ve met anybody that hasn’t seen at least one movie of Rush Hour. Was one of the best movies I’ve seen while I was a kid. If you’ve seen the bloopers you know Jackie and Chris have a special bond between them. Jackie Chan was interviewed recently and talked about funny moments with Chris Tucker.
So I guess the guy was probably pissed because he had terrible customer service. Either that or he was going to get insurance from an accident and wanted to get more out of it. The video reminded me of a Chinese man who destroyed his Lamborghini for bad customer service (video), except the guy did massive damage while the Saudi barely scratched the surface.
According to the uploader one of the big garbage bins caught fire on Mubarak Al Kabeer street at around 10p.m yesterday. No idea how the bin reached the street or how it got engulfed with fire. It seems we’re having something big burning every other week, I don’t see a solution to this problem taking place any time soon unfortunately.
