Maybe I should ressurect this bitch?

It has been almost two years since I made a post. At the peak, there were 800-1000 viewers a day. My contempt for Dubai has not changed, and there are a million posts I wished I made. Vat to do? (bobble). Maybe I will get back in the action now that blogging seems to be such a hot topic these days.

So much to discuss... CSI, Douchebags of days-gone by. Shit. I could sit here for a week. At the request of a friend, I will likely go into travel blog mode, then revert to the Douchebaggery that is Dubai. Let's face it, it is still a shit hole. Fortunately, Dubai has become a bigger dump than it was years ago and there is so much blog fodder available.

Yours truly has lost it all and won it back in the past couple of years. The GFC and CSI were tough, but I soldiered on as promised.

Just to prove it is me

Timestamp on this ad as it is getting a lot of traffic. BTW. Why 700 views on Dubizzle?

Don't ask questions. I'll tell you later. Things with CSI are heating up and so is my rent again!

Last ditch effort

The response has been crazy!

Last Ribs in Dubai

As you may know from a previous post, I am a fan of ribs. Love my baby-back, baby-back ribs!On of the benefits of Dubai is that not only can you get infidel juice, but also infidel meat. The government is good like that. Put up a sign that it is for non-Muslims, and infidel away! I have been craving the ribs at the Arabian Ranches golf course for two days now. When I read the news about no more pork this afternoon, I was concerned I would not be having my dinner. I managed to get there about 8:30 tonight hoping that they are far enough out in the sticks they wouldn't know that they were not allowed to sell pork anymore. I was right. As I put the last barren rip on the bone plate, the manager called a meeting to let staff know that pork was not available anymore effective immediately. Ah, sweet victory.

In case you haven't heard, we have a global financial crisis (I mean) recession (I mean) PANDEMIC! Get your freak on, people, it's Piggy Flu time!

Like the poor oinkers don't take a beating enough in this country, as of now all pork for sale or consumption is banned. No more ribs. Bugger. Seems the flu is the victim of an unfortunate name, seeing as you cant get it from consumption, but rather person-to-person transmission. They didn't ban poultry during the bird flu outbreak. Will we get pork back when this is over? Guess we'll see.

Seeing as fellow blogger,Seabee already spoke my opinion for me, I suggest you check out the story HERE. I 100% agree with what is said there.

What scares the shit out of me is that the W.H.O. said that increased personal hygiene would stave off infection. Hygiene. Really. You can tell by the vapours in the air already that hygiene is not high on the agenda of many in these parts. Besides that, there is air-kissing and hand-holding like nobody's business. I think we're going down.

Nothing to do with Dubai

Time for another gem from the Interwebz. Nothing to do with Dubai, just impressed with people's skills and amount of free time! The guys in this vid use the same effect as Akon and T-pain (and Cher). Funny stuff.

The Dubai Extension Cord

I love this. I spend money on quality equipment..ladders, tools, various supplies. In my line of work, I do it right and get it done. What amazes me is the fact that there are other contractors that will spend hours making something like a haphazard extension cord for power, rather than drop 50 AED on a proper one. What the hell is wrong with these guys? Here are some shots from a current job I am doing on the Palm Jumeira. Judging by the buggies in the driveway, would you think the client cuts corners? BTW, it is a young married couple that hired me. Good thing they got the X5/X7 in black AND white. What you can't see is the slickest 911 in town in the garage. My buggy is not in the frame, sadly. Can you spot any issues?

"Hey, I'm loaded and have more cars than I need"

"Hey, I can't spring for a real extension cord and do this stupid shit."

"I'm a total retard and put home made extension cord IN the pool."

"yup, confirmed, we ARE running the power directly through the pool."

Only MIke has a Comment?

I'm a little surprised. I know I said it before, but this time I am TRULY surprised. Two articles down, I offered to open up Pandora's Box, based on your responses. A couple of hundred people viewed the post, but only "Mike" commented. What gives. A simple yes/no would do.
