I was searching for a story i saw in an email about a Kuwaiti man who captured a tiger which was drawn to his herds of sheep while in Saudi Arabia, but stumbled upon this instead. A Kuwaiti man caught in the beginning of the year in Pattaya,Thailand for forcing an underage boy into performing some unimaginable acts. How low can people stoop?

Top Gear’s Scariest Moment

8 Oct 2009  1 Comment

As Richard Hammond explains in this article here, usually the questions he gets from people are about which is the best car he has ever driven. But here, Hammond talks about the scariest Top Gear moment which was during their episode in Alabama on their American Road Trip. Where as you can see from the pictures, they put slogans such as “Man love rules ok, Hillary for president, Country and Western is rubbish and Nascar sucks” on their vehicles and drove through a hick town full of angry rednecks. Of course, some of it was caught on camera for the episode but he continues to talk about the rest of the ordeal.

Hai Bali

I never thought one day that I’ll go to Bali, not because that I didn’t want to but didn’t feel the need to do it since I already explored most of southeast Asia. But when you have a free one … hey why not :). So I packed my bags and decided to go, and with all the problems I faced before leaving (ticketing issues and even a bruised 5th metatarsal) I wasn’t going to miss such an opportunity.
