CNN has an article which goes through 12 of the most annoying types of facebook users. The funny thing is that,the article is kinda accurate.. luckily i will never admit to being any of the types they specify :p
The Let-Me-Tell-You-Every-Detail-of-My-Day Bore. "I'm waking up." "I had Wheaties for breakfast." "I'm bored at work." "I'm stuck in traffic." You're kidding! How fascinating! No moment is too mundane for some people to broadcast unsolicited to the world. Just because you have 432 Facebook friends doesn't mean we all want to know when you're waiting for the bus.
The Self-Promoter. OK, so we've probably all posted at least once about some achievement. And sure, maybe your friends really do want to read the fascinating article you wrote about beet farming. But when almost EVERY update is a link to your blog, your poetry reading, your 10k results or your art show, you sound like a bragger or a self-centered careerist. The Friend-Padder. The average Facebook user has 120 friends on the site. Schmoozers and social butterflies -- you know, the ones who make lifelong pals on the subway -- might reasonably have 300 or 400. But 1,000 "friends?" Unless you're George Clooney or just won the lottery, no one has that many. That's just showing off.
The Town Crier. "Michael Jackson is dead!!!" You heard it from me first! Me, and the 213,000 other people who all saw it on TMZ. These Matt Drudge wannabes are the reason many of us learn of breaking news not from TV or news sites but from online social networks. In their rush to trumpet the news, these people also spread rumors, half-truths and innuendo. No, Jeff Goldblum did not plunge to his death from a New Zealand cliff.
The TMIer. "Brad is heading to Walgreens to buy something for these pesky hemorrhoids." Boundaries of privacy and decorum don't seem to exist for these too-much-information updaters, who unabashedly offer up details about their sex lives, marital troubles and bodily functions. Thanks for sharing.
The Bad Grammarian. "So sad about Fara Fauset but Im so gladd its friday yippe". Yes, I know the punctuation rules are different in the digital world. And, no, no one likes a spelling-Nazi schoolmarm. But you sound like a moron.
The Sympathy-Baiter. "Barbara is feeling sad today." "Man, am I glad that's over." "Jim could really use some good news about now." Like anglers hunting for fish, these sad sacks cast out their hooks -- baited with vague tales of woe -- in the hopes of landing concerned responses. Genuine bad news is one thing, but these manipulative posts are just pleas for attention.
The Lurker. The Peeping Toms of Facebook, these voyeurs are too cautious, or maybe too lazy, to update their status or write on your wall. But once in a while, you'll be talking to them and they'll mention something you posted, so you know they're on your page, hiding in the shadows. It's just a little creepy.
The Crank. These curmudgeons, like the trolls who spew hate in blog comments, never met something they couldn't complain about. "Carl isn't really that impressed with idiots who don't realize how idiotic they are." [Actual status update.] Keep spreading the love.
The Paparazzo. Ever visit your Facebook page and discover that someone's posted a photo of you from last weekend's party -- a photo you didn't authorize and haven't even seen? You'd really rather not have to explain to your mom why you were leering like a drunken hyena and French-kissing a bottle of Jagermeister.
The Obscurist. "If not now then when?" "You'll see..." "Grist for the mill." "John is, small world." "Dave thought he was immune, but no. No, he is not." [Actual status updates, all.] Sorry, but you're not being mysterious -- just nonsensical.
The Chronic Inviter. "Support my cause. Sign my petition. Play Mafia Wars with me. Which 'Star Trek' character are you? Here are the 'Top 5 cars I have personally owned.' Here are '25 Things About Me.' Here's a drink. What drink are you? We're related! I took the 'What President Are You?' quiz and found out I'm Millard Fillmore! What president are you?"
You probably mean well, but stop. Just stop. I don't care what president I am -- can't we simply be friends? Now excuse me while I go post the link to this story on my Facebook page

Kuwait needs its beaches desperatley! how else are we supposed to get away from all the za7ma, croud, crazy driving and annoying people that are far away from the chalets, and beach resorts.. However, kuwait as we all kno is falling apart, and now ALWATANDAILY newspaper reports that a sewage plant in mishref has broken down and the sewage will be redirected to the sea! WTF?
"Environmental disaster awaits Jon AlـKuwait Haned AlـSayed
KUWAIT: A looming disaster of a great magnitude is about to strike the Gulf (Jon AlـKuwait), which has been receiving unprocessed sewage from the Mishref pumping station. The station is being operated with just three pumps as 13 pumps are out of service due to the unprecedented pollution with the sewage level rising to such a dangerous level that it could have caused the explosion at the station.
In the face of this, the Ministry of Public Works has no option but to divert the sewage to the sea through the rain drainage networks. The ministry, later on, announced that the station had collapsed completely and that it was being fixed. Sources close to the ministry intimated that the repair process will not be completed for another two months at least during which time the sewage from all areas will be diverted to the sea, adding that the station can only pump 340,000 liters during peak hours. The sources went on to warn that the mishap will equally affect the sewage distillation station in Sulaibiya.
The sources further attributed this problem to indecisiveness on the part of the concerned officials to fix the mishaps since months, which added pressure on the three functioning pumps."
We fought so hard to get done with polloution after the gulf war, now we are pollouting the country with our own hands..
Am i in a "third world" proverty stricken country without knowing?
A funny low budget series about a group of local gamers and their lives, its really funny and its really short, and apparently its really big since its being translated into several different languages. Enjoy since this is better than anything you propabably will see on tv in Ramathan.
An article appeared in ALWATANDAILY today about a renovation plan of kuwaits parks with a 25 million kd budget, obviously i couldnt be happier because WE DESPERATLY need it, they also plan on beautifying the abdali road,
"National authorities are executing a plan to green and beautify up to 60 public parks throughout the country. The mega scheme, covering 60 gardens of a 600,000ـsquare meter space, is projected to cost up to KD 25 million, said Ibrahim Toufic, Deputy General Director for Agricultural and Beautifying Affairs at the Public Authority for Agriculture and Fish Resources "
If you wan to understand how important it is, click here and the new architectual blog Rekuawit will explain a bit how it all works. Rekuwait might possibly be the one working on it, if they are, i wish them the best of luck because with the people they work with, they are going to need it..
2: DO NOT DRIVE LIKE UR IN A PS3 GAME OR THINK UR SCHUMACHER LEAVNIG UR HOUSE 5 MIN BEFORE IFTAR THINKING YOU CAN GET TO YOUR FAMILY'S HOUSE IN 3 MIN.

I was looking through some of the blogs i usually read, and 4thringroad and i saw this video they had which they were talking about an event that happens during it. The video which is an old video of rowaished singing after the end of the war and the happiness and community love and family kinda love that Kuwaitis USED to share. It just reminded me of my beautiful country and its people and how i am lucky enough to have been able to have experienced just a bit of that, even though it was towards the end of the "golden years" and way past the amazing 70's. I don't know i may be exaggerating bas i really feel bad that ith dosent exist, that unity, its more of everyone helps only his family or friends instead of haveing the ideaology that kuwaitis are all one family. Ok i have to return to being a dude and be a bit less emotional so enjoy the song and video.
Ok i know this is olllldd but i just fixed my reciever and i never paid attention to the Melody Tunes channel. I saw these ads a all i could think of is that i just have to put these up, just in case someone has not seen them!!!
Hey, i is back! Lebanon was amazzzzinnng!!! unfortnatuly the food wasn't. il ba7ar mu sij! aka the becah was unreal, perfect waves not too hot not too cold! i had so much fun, but no pictures :( I went to ABC in ashrafiya once and realised that it was full of us, and saudi arabians so i didn't return, imagine going to lebanon and hanging out in a mall... that would be sad since all we have here are malls, which are much nicer. THE FOOOD WAS BAAD well the places i went to, chillis was really good but other "American cuisne" restaurants like the famous roadster and what not were terrible, Scoozi was... id rather not eat. if u go there just do a diet. Anyways heres a video of what CNN thought of lebanon, and i agree, very much!
