My cat isn’t that hairy but these lint rollers are a must for every cat and dog owner. You just rub them on your cloth and they will remove all the lint, hair and extra fibers on your cloth making them look like they just got out laundry. They’re available at Muji, IKEA and Ace Hardware, each different brands.
Every now and then I pass by Baskin Robbins to get a fine milk shake with scoops I pick, I’ve been doing it since college days. I passed by recently and found they were now serving caffeinated ice cream which I thought was a nice idea to add to my milkshake so I did. It turned out pretty well, you can’t taste the coffee, just an ice cream that will keep you awake.
For those that don’t know [Zach], he’s famous for making tricks on video that blow your mind. Some of his videos are easy to predicts, others are pretty good. Zach will be talking about his experience how he became so successful, so I guess it’s not focused on him doing some tricks. For more details click [here].
You can see the tiny humans on the photo to get a bigger picture on just how large this billboard is, pun intended. LG officially entered the Guinness World Record for the largest billboard advertisement ever made. At the size of two football fields, LG is expecting 20 million people to see their ad.(Source)
A technician fearing for his life posted his story on reddit, it’s relating to a popular way of gulping a lot of money in Kuwait. Getting a contract for a big project and charging 300%+ it’s initial cost. This time however, someone died in the process due to this corrupted agreement. His story is below, it’s an interesting read.
“This one is a little long, but please be patient. I work for a maintenance contract company (private firm) in Kuwait Ports Authority, Shuwaikh. A few months ago the maintenance engineer of the port (Mr. A, government employee) came up with a proposal to “upgrade” the electrical panels at the port. The proposal was accepted and a tender was floated (KD 200,000) which was picked up by another maintenance company (Company A, another private firm) at the port. So Mr. A goes to company A and tells them that he will fulfill the tender agreement using his connections. He made an agreement that company A will get KD 30,000 just for being the front (doing nothing) and he be given the rest KD 170,000 for doing the up gradation work. Company A agrees. Mr. A then involved his relatives and makes a cheap quality panel and equips it at the port. The panel is such bad quality that soon after the installation many connected equipment catch fire. A technician working for company A who was helping in the installation gets killed during the installation process. He died because of the cheap quality of the panel as it has 0 safety features and the whole equipment is a death trap. His death was quickly covered up as an “accident”. The man who died was an immigrant so nobody higher up looked into the matter. Now, after the death of the employee company A backs out of helping in the installation process and Mr. A starts to harass other companies working inside the port to help finish the work. The other companies somehow managed to install it so it works. But it is still a death trap. My problem is, since ours is a maintenance company we will be required to do routine maintenance on the equipment in the future and more deaths will happen. What can I do so people higher up takes notice of this issue and bring in experts to investigate the matter. It’s corruption so vile that they are playing with people’s life just for money. And this is not politicians playing with people’s life, it’s a maintenance engineer (not that politicians are allowed to). I feel helpless as an immigrant myself with little connections. I urge you Kuwaitis to stand up to this issue and guide me on what I should/can do.”[Link]
I wonder if there’s a hotline in Kuwait for reporting corruption.
It was a matter of time till something this weird happens, the walkway is separated by a path where you stare at your mobile and bump with everyone else staring at their mobile, and a normal walkway. We need something similar to this in Kuwait, except mobile-only roads, not walkways since more people drive while staring at their phone or recording than actually looking at the road.

I’m not going to share the video that went viral of a police officer taking a video of himself verbally abusing a Canadian lady and her daughter in Arabic. I am glad however he is getting disciplined by the Monitoring and Inspection Department for violations after the minister himself ordered for his arrest. It’s an irony when your job is to do justice when you arrive and videotape injustice.[Source]
I’ve been a fan of Pick Yo well before it started trending, and what I don’t like about it trending is I can no longer schedule meetings there anymore, because it’s too packed and too hot. Qurtoba residents are going to love having it though, there’s barely anything in the co-op area apart from Burger King, Caribou and a shawerma place.
