Conan O’Brien vs NBC

22 Jan 2010  3 Comments

Most people have heard of the situation at NBC, with them trying to push Jay Leno (after his new shows’ failure) back into the Tonight Show, which happens to be Conan O’Brien’s slot. To make a long story short, NBC have paid off Conan and his staff around $45 million to give up their slot and leave the network. But until that happened, Conan decided to “make them bleed”. Check out the video below.

Worst Goalkeeper Ever

After the sad events of the beginning of the Tournament in Angola with the shooting and withdrawal of Togo from the championship, we have now seen a lighter side of football.

This is goalkeeper Joao Rafael in the game between Benin vs Mozambique from the African Cup of Nations. He made a “routine” save late in the game almost cost him a goal and a broken neck! Hilarious fail moment from the ACN.

Souq Al-Mubarkiya – سوق المباركية

Yesterday i took my random yearly trip to Souq Al-Mubarkiya, one of the most historic places in Kuwait. I wasnt looking for anything, just a little walk around since the weather was nice and there wasnt much to do last night. It was nice to see some foreigners (europeans/americans) walking around and enjoying a taste of our history. I took some quick snaps of random things with my phone which you can find below…

I saw this canon-like Courvoisier Cognac bottle in a random store with lots of old and vintage stuff. I regretted not buying later actually because it does look pretty cool. I also found some really old wind up record players that still work which was also interesting. Click below to see the rest of the pictures. Continue Reading

Kuwait’s “lets forget 2009″ List

6 Jan 2010  17 Comments

On a more candid note after my post about 2009, somethings that might have been around before 2009, but may have gotten slightly out of hand.

Number 1 : RIM’s breakthru into the Kuwaiti market with their Blackberry’s. Its hard to have a conversation with an owner of these devices without being interrupted by furiously rapid texting or beeps emerging from the phone. Do they realize they can have the same data plan with any smartphone and use any social networking/chatting program to the same effect?

Kick a Ginger Day!

7 Dec 2009  4 Comments

A redheaded sixth-grade girl victimized by a Facebook prank calling for students to participate in “Kick a Ginger Day” says she was scared that the incident could have gotten worse.

Sheriff’s investigators say the Facebook message may have been inspired by a “South Park” TV episode that satirized racial prejudice by portraying a campaign against red-haired, fair-skinned “ginger” people.

Its incredible what you will come up with if you search for “kick a ginger”. Even Prince Harry’s girlfriend and colleagues give him a hard time by calling him big ginger!
