Death sentence for Hawalli monster
Staff WriterKUWAIT: The Criminal Court chaired by Judge Salah AlـHouti sentenced the ''Hawalli Monster'' to death by hanging in one of the cases leveled against him.

Worried local residents called the police when the dog that was clearly infected with rabies began to terrorize the neighborhood. Police officers rushed to the area and after a long chase shot the dog dead.

Staff WriterKUWAIT: 75,000 thousand pirated CDs were confiscated by the inspection team at the Ministry of Information. The team carried out its inspection in shopping malls in the Fahaheel area on Tuesday evening and inspected the CDs and found that they were all pirated copies of the latest blockbuster films. The team is also scheduled to comb other areas in an attempt to curb the unauthorized sale of pirated copies in the country. Meanwhile, in a separate incident, a fistfight was reported in the Jahra area that resulted in the injury of three citizens. Jahra police and paramedics rushed to the scene and admitted the injured citizens to the Jahra Hospital.
Coـoperative society robbed
Staff WriterKUWAIT: The safe in one of the coـoperative societies in Sulaibiya was reportedly robbed by some unidentified people. Police received a call from the accountant who told the police that when he entered the office he noticed that the safe had been forced open and its entire contents stolen. He told the police that 130 Kuwaiti dinars and prepaid mobile phone cards worth KD 180 were stolen. Police have initiated investigations into the theft.

25,000 dinars for disabling military officer
Staff WriterKUWAIT: The Civil Court has set April 8 to review a lawsuit against a Kuwaiti citizen who attacked a lieutenantـcolonel causing him 15 percent permanent disability according to medical reports. Lt.ـColonel Adel AlـHashshash told the court that the assailant verbally abused and punched him while being under the influence of alcohol. The Lawyer of the victim Yusuf AlـAdawni told the court that AlـHashshash has been afflicted with permanent disability as a result of the physical assault by the assailant. The lawyer also pointed out to the fact that he abused and attacked a highـranking military officer and the disability would incapacitate him from carrying out his military duty and exercises "which would certainly affect his career". The lawyer demanded that the attacker should pay the sum of 25,000 Kuwaiti dinars as compensation for the physical disability that he caused. He also explained that the compensation is not intended to gain any profit but to make up for the agony and distress that the incident has caused to the victim and his family as well as affected his career in the military.

Apparently Kuwait Needs 12,000 New workers for hospitals and malls and what not as well as opening 5000 new jobs and requesting Philipinos to come take them... Um i know we havent been hit hard yet but GLOBAL ECONMIC CRISIS RING A BELL!!
Apparently We Owe The Government 6 Billion Kd Whats annoying about this is that we are pressuring MPs to waiver our debts. How self Centered irresponsible van we become, if you dont have the ability dont take out a lona you can't pay. FOR GODS SAKE PEOPLE I THINK SOME OF YOU ARE ADULTS. The market just dosent work that way and your nagging about the debts you have amounted due to your irresponsibility and lack of intelligence in managing you finances to Certain MPs who cause problems in the parliment to gain popularity is further slowing down our regressing nation's small attempt at progress. yeah i got lost in it.

For the past 2 weeks me and raz would be walking around me like a blind man and him my eyes lol i could be using a stick, any ways when any person of interest, thats the way im going to put it, would pass by i would turn to Raz and ask him, Do i Wish i could see, The answers i have gotten were NO NOOO and the rest were REGRET THAT U CANT SEE, YES YES YES YES YES so Raz i will inshalla be seeing everything as much as possible and im gong to go be one of those creepy old men who sit at that cinnamon place and check out people. lol Raz thx for being o extreme help its much appreciated
Well i was in the elevator yesterday and i bumped into two grown aquaintences who were acting like women who had just smelled a skunk or had seen a rat or mouse so i lok around and they are coverng their noses and opinting and making all these "wai3, "Wai3" sounds and iff and i dont know what i had not realized yet because they were pointing at a worker, a human being, working at the American University whilest still on the poverty line, and he had to endure the humilation of being made fun of by two grown kuwaiti boys who had my respect and are all polite and everything with me and anybody else yet this is how act in public with even a teacher infront of them but whether or not a teacher was infront of them or any for the matter, its just extremly dissapointing and a disgusting act. Whats more its sad to know that there are more people like that around us, i hope that one day he will face the same situation but with the tables turned.
Just a quick post on my way out, After, (wait i want to play something on itunes), ok back after TWO WEEKS of not beign able to see anything more than a meter or 30 cm in front of me, walking around like a blind man skipping every living thing in Uni and squinting at teachers who thuoght i was angry at them. I finally went through the LASIK operation, which was such a weird/scary experience which included having a bright bright bmwhighbeam shone into my eye which is painful for me since i think im photosensitive. i left not being able to see anything that clearly but when i got home i sat down had pasta with dean and deluca arrabiata sauce while watching Tom and jerry before passing out and waking up 5 hours later going down stairs taking some chocolate milk and coming back up for round two which was a few hours laters, i just woke up with about 85-90 % of my vision back enough to drive without being worried which is wierd. However the annoying thing is that im wearing a contact lenses for the next three days and i dont know when i can start playing football cause nothing is supposed to hit my eye for the next feww weeks im guesing, and now my mom has sat next to me which is a hint that i have to go and shower and leave to my aunts house, the good thing is i have the itrip finally.
id like to extend my gradtitude towards aisha for reminding me of how much i need to leave the country.. like soon.
I have two projects in mind for the next few months.
My Personal get back into shape project/Diary:-
As most of my friends know i used to play Club Football, once upon a time. Once upon a time i was perfectly fit, but winter comes and i am drawn to hot food, and my own addiction "Home Made French fries" mmmmmmmmmm..... well because of my lack of exercise and excessicve food intake, i have gained 10 K's and gained a belly... also been onf the recieving end of verbal abuse from aziz and S. ;P who are trying to motivate me apparently (A) so i will be having a diary of my progerss back into shape for people who dont believe running and going to a gym works wonders( im hoping it does)
My second project will be a T-shirt Buisness:-

I have been wanting to start it and Khaled already has experience so i will be looking forward to working with him and being a sucess <== how do you spell it?? i am looking to wearing the T-shirts too ;P i have in mind a T- Shirt saying " Yes I Am Wearing My Sunglasses To Pretend I Dont See U" or some thing along those lines " I wear sunglasses = Me very Hot" or " When I wear My Shades I Dont want to talk to you" something like that lol ;P
Wish Me Luck and i hope they spark your interest..
Theres something about two men eating indian food that drives them into intense deep serious conversation, the type that drives our lady fans wild. however suprisingly today the lady fans where nowhere to be seen in the marina food court, adding to the fact that i cant see anyways.. yes i am a blind kuwaiti. That is the hardest thing to be because people wave at you and you have no idea that they are waving, you skip people and you have no idea who your talking to untill your in that persons personal space which makes both parties, well them, uneasy. However inshallah tomorrow i will get these old eyes fixed, LASIK apparently thats the way to go, anyways yes i will be your test subject for people who are suspicious or worried about it. ill try to take pics too, i honestly cant wait to get my vision back and drive my own car. anyways back to indian food and two men, so me and Raz from Hydstu.wordpress.com, went to the food court at Marina Mall, and after taking a tour and deciding after using our amazing cutting edge? negotiation skills we decided it would be Mughal Mahal. so we go Raz orders straight away and it was my turn so i ask the guy( who already had chosen my order without even asking me!!! i HATE THAT) after changing my mind serveral times if i could have prawn biryani, hes like ok, then i continue and say ad buttter chicken and shrinp something, he looks and says no i was like but thats what i want, so after some more drawn out negotiations i decided to have normal biryani and butter chicken and shrimp smething, Right after i decided he puts on a angry face and says something to his co workers in indian and they all laugh, so i look at my friend and say somethign randomand turn and look at him and laugh back, -_- yes i am cool. Well to their credit food was nice and hot, and after food me and raz got deep into talking abuot stuff blogs life and we came to a conclusion...
No i am not saying treats whilest trying to sound cute, but Tweets its some new fad or whatever that happens to be appearing wherever i go in the internet. It is apparently some sort of instant messaging using something called twitter between Celebreties and us normal? people. It lets them update and msg us on what they ate are doing did are thinking or whatever..
The Wikipedia defintion for Twitter:
"Twitter is a social networking and micro-blogging service that allows its users to send and read other users' updates (known as tweets), which are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length. Updates are displayed on the user's profile page and delivered to other users who have signed up to receive them. Senders can restrict delivery to those in their circle of friends (delivery to everyone being the default). Users can receive updates via the Twitter website, SMS, RSS, or through applications such as TwitterMobile, Tweetie, Twinkle, Twitterrific, Feedalizr, Facebook, and Twidget, a widget application. Four gateway numbers are currently available for SMS: short codes for the United States, Canada, and India, and a United Kingdom-based number for international use. Several third parties offer posting and receiving updates via email. Estimates of the number of daily users vary as the company does not release the number of active accounts. In November 2008, Jeremiah Owyang of Forrester Research estimated that Twitter had 4-5 million users. A Bloomberg article in February 2009 stated the number to be 55 million daily users. Twitter messages may be tagged using hashtags, a word or phrase prefixed with a #, such as #beer"
The defintion i got from TIME.com was "Stars are just like us — they Twitter, too! From Britney Spears to Arnold Schwarzenegger, celebs are using the micro-messaging tool to spread the word about everything from the food they eat to the parties they attend. A look at some of the top personalities you can follow on Twitter."
I am awake yet again till 5 in the morinig for no good reason, add to that the discomfort of not wearing my contacts for the last week and a half, 4 more days to go..
ANYWAYS.. i was "surfing the internet" and i came across two youtube videos and a few random articles that will kill time,
i did have some thing interesting to blog about, but i forgot.. neways im giong to go do an IQ test, my last score was either 126 or 136 i cant remember but that was back in 10th grade lets see the effect of AUK and kuwait..
These are the links to to videos of REALLY REALLY DUMB people:
first video is a cop who was high with his wife and then freaking out calling 911..
One of The Jonas Brother,The Jonas Brothers being a band made up of 3 brothers who rose to fame for wearing a promise ring(to save their virgintiy) no matter how famous they become. well one of The Jonas Brothers wants to be a president. Later i find a very interesting postcard secret on Postsecret.com which is an amazing website with interesting postcards sent by people from all over the world containing their own personal deepest secrets and they dont put a name or anything..
Nick Jonas: the guy who wants to be President: -
Then i saw this on Postsecret.blogspot.com : -
Coincedence i think NOT!!!
However black prez now and by that time homosexuality might not be an issue..
loool the sad thing is that they have started making t-shirts.
Ever look into someones face and smile pretending to be esctatic to see them, when you actually are counting the seconds till you can just leave. The fake laughs are harder to force out, you can't keep smiling forever, and it gets really hard to let them feel your still interested in the bull coming out of their mouths. Those people are a waste of time. Time is precious. Stop wasting Time..
Every now and then you fall on something Unique, well tday on my way home i saw a shop filled with antiques/artifacts whatever you want to call them. It was like i was stepping into a different World there was everything from old records coins and stereos machines toys to old pepsi scratch and win prizes and much more.. The shop is owned by the person who also owns LAKATAT Studio in shaab Mohammed Al Banna (i need to double check). He first planned on making it another studio and calling it LAHATHAT before changing his mind. The shop is small and no Bigger than MOKAN cafe next to ASK, to those who know it However the amount of items he has and their vareity are breath taking. What makes it special is that He only sells records, as he hopes to preserve some part of Kuwait's dissapearing history. He's extremley friendly and hospitable and will take you way back as he talks about where and when the antiques were attained. He sells Records mostly arab records but he does even have the Beatles Bonny M etc.. so it could be a nice present for those of you who have people in their lives that were their at "that" time. This store is Unique in kuwait and its the only one that sells records in the Middle east apparently. If you want to check it out their Address is: Pearl Al Marzoug Building in Ras Al Salmiya St 1. Its Called Nawader Al Kuwait.

Fringe: A sci - fi drama much like the X files but with a better tune, it goes around three main characters, A female FBI agent a Mad scientist let out of a Mental institution and his son. As well as a Big Scary E.T Look a like Boss.
Lie To Me: The main character studied body language for many years before transferring back to civilization and has made a buisness out of detecting lies this show is really cool especially the pilot as it shows you certain body movements that people do when they lie and they also show previous example from real life people such as Prez. Nixon and Clinton as well as other celebrities.
The Mentalist: Came before Lie to me but just as good with a little more drama/Saddness to it. A guy who solves crimes and mysteries by using mindtricks and tests to figure out the truth. An excellent hypnotist to and also know lots of pointless info
How Not to Live Your Life:
A english comedy that is on hiatus but is definitley worth the watch if your looking for laugh and have time to kill.
I'll post some later but my midnight dinner has just arrived.. i strongly suggest checking out the first three they are all amazing!!
i think i might have started too personal but thats part of me which means its part of the blog but in any case my life is interesting, thats a fact and a statement by K5 therfore you cant appeal or argue it. however i have a few questions..
why do kuwaitis run around malls with two mobiles? i have to have two due to work and its a PAIN in the ass. are they hoping people will be so awed by the fact they have enough space in their pants for 2-3 phones that they will ignore their Iq level? why are we obssesed about relationships...
why do i have ppl on facebook with pictures of their tummies or otherparts of their body adding me?
Will Rhona Mitra finally realize im the one shes been looking for and come to kuawit.
Oh yeah, I am extremly enjoying 6alabat.com
its a website where you can order food from serveral restaurants online and skip the waiting on the phone process, whats more is that they show you the menu and some plaecs accept Knet incase you dont got cash..
There was a exhibition at the mishref fair grounds about telephones and tech stuff, internet Viva Wataniya and Zain. Wataniya was best represented, and unfortunatly there were like only 4 Hot girls in the whole "Room" and my beautiful friend who had to work at Wataniya. As usual the all the guys swarmed over the stalls where the girls were at and especially SonyEricsson where there was a beautiful girl. She was unfortunatley married, raped kidnapped and everything else by the eyes of the men around her. Wonder how she feels about it. I do tend to think where people get these girls out of the blue. It takes guts to do what they do. I work at the Viva Call Center, which happens to be the worst job i have had and i use alot of energy keeping myself from calling the people who talk to me idots among other things. Well its 12 and i have an exam in the morning which i again haven't studied for. I really dont know why i put myself in these perdicments im also kinda wanting to eat something. Over the last few months.. well since summer i have been spending alot of time in bed watching stuff reading stuff and what not and baisicaly my body has turned to mush, my braind is dying away and im trying to wake my self up before i am taken over by the Kuwaiti life style of eat spend money go out spend money sleep. I am joining a gym tomorrow. Wait no next week. Tomorrow i will go and giz myself at the exhibition with my cousin. Also i need to see Dode'. Dode' is pretty much the coolest person you will meet.

My experiences the food the places i go to the things i see and do and my reactions to everything. I also would like to inform anyone reading it that please continue even though you might find me a bit off such as creating a blog instead of studying for an exam tomorrow or writing an essay due today. I really wonder why i always put things off.. and we begin...
