My Banana Republic pant is made in Bahrain. I didn’t know they had a factory there!?

 





What a record!ย They served 117 cars in Mcdonald’s Bnaider in one hour. Thats 2 cars a minute!

 





They were really good at disguising their clothes and the places they’ve been to in the movie, for example the getaway is actually in AbuDhabi and not Morocco. Check out AbuDhabi’s skyline in the movie, Abudhabians must’ve paid them really well.

Thanks Badoory

I heard he was warned to remove all the signs, and now instead of taking them off he added, defyingly, Allah on top.

You know how supermarkets operate, they bundle 2 items together and sell them for slightly less. Which works like a charm, and is a great marketing strategy. Well, a reader just sent us the picture above, in his case it was ‘buy 2 items for slightly more‘. I know the price difference isn’t an issue in this case, but I still find this pretty odd.

The thing is, this isn’t the first time I see something like that, my cousin and I were at Lulu’s a couple of weeks back, and the Rice price was confusing. You’d pay less if you bought two 5kg’s bags than buying a single 10kg’s bag. Am I missing something? wasn’t it always the other way around?

Why bundle two items together if they’re not a better deal? An even better question would be, why the increase in price?

Thanks Ferydon

 





The blog runs fine on all browsers, including internet explorer, but some of the people using explorer were having problems viewing the blog. What made this little issue so mysterious was that the site ran perfectly fine with all of the explorers I used at work, yet some of my friends were telling me for example “the blog opens fine on my friends computer, but I encounter an error on mine.”

Long story short, we figured it out, it was something really silly. Beyond silly actually. We had one off character in one of the codes in the flash ads, and that little thing affected some versions of the explorers.

Thanks for all of the people who wrote us about this. Error no more! And Thanks Blog37 for all the help.

P.S. We despise IE.

Kuwait Oil Company decided to build an artificial oasis on the top of the second largest field in the world and call it Burgan Oasis. It’s a small piece of land that looks like Kuwait’s map, surrounded by water, and it will have a meeting room, a dewaniya a kitchen and bathrooms. Unfortunately its restricted to KOC’s employees only.

Yesterday I was downloading my OSX latest update via Zain’s USB modem and found out that they’ve boost their speed which gives me an average of 1.4 Mbps and the lowest I got was around 750 Kbps which was stable till I finished my download, The file was 500+ MB so its really a big file! Good move from Zain.

 





Whats the point behind it? This guy enjoy blending any new gadget!

I was just talking to an OSN sales person over the phone and he told me that they’ll send each OSN subscriber a decoder (satellite receiver with no slot for a card). He said that it’s a gift so you could enjoy the channels in HD format.

Can this decoder affect tv piracy?

 





He enrolled in business school aged 96 and graduated this year, aged 99.

“Education has no end,” he told CNN. “As far as your brain can work alright, your eyes can see alright, and your ears can hear alright, if you go to school you can learn.”

Thats what I call will power!

We’re building an extension to our diwaniya in chalet and we had to chop off a 20 plus year old tree that was on the way. It was a hard and a long process, we couldn’t move it even after cutting all of it’s roots, it was a bit too heavy, even for 2 cars to pull it off. Then a monster came a long and ripped it right out and dragged it outta the gates. Cruel scene. Watch the rest of the pictures

 





OSN or whatever it is called now. I hate it. There is nothing good on it when I’m watching, and the timing is way off, it’s always either john stewart or that other funny guy on, never a sitcom when I’m watching.

I just don’t like their new timing. And what was that? (picture above) I don’t like football and my subscription doesn’t include a single football channel, so why the hell was there a game on ShowMovies KIDS the other day!?
