If anyone was around Al-Rai area earlier last week, they might have been stopped by a “police man”. This guy dressed as a police officer took it upon himself to create a checkpoint and stop everyone. Nearby mall security got suspicious since this genius was wearing the summer uniform, anyway, they called the actual police and they showed up at the scene eventually.
When Mr. Policeman was asked about his identity, he insisted that he was indeed a police officer. After much interrogation, they found out who this guy was and came to the conclusion that he was a Syrian man in his mid-twenties.
The whole point of his little stunt was to prove to his girlfriend that he was Kuwaiti AND employed in the Ministry of Interior. Lol, if that’s not sad, I don’t know what it is. Guys, be proud of where you come from and what you do. If you need to lie to her about your passport, I promise you, she’s not worth it.
This little Einstein is now being held in custody until they figure out what to do with him. Thoughts?
Apparently all women in Iran that are to play for the National Team need to go through mandatory gender tests to prove that they are actually women and haven’t undergone any gender changing operations. These “random” checks have been issued after loads of different “women” four of which are members of the national team were found to have gone through gender changing surgeries. They varied from men who had not yet gone through with the gender change surgery, or were suffering from sexual development issues.
Iran has legalized gender change operations according to a Fatwa, or religious ruling, pronounced by the late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. Medical examiners will turn up unannounced at training sessions of teams playing in Iran’s women’s premier league, as well as those playing in the indoor league, known as footsal.
Ahmad Hashemian, head of the Iranian football federation’s medical committee, said “Those unable to prove they are female would be barred from taking part in the women’s leagues until they underwent medical treatment”
I thought this was pretty funny considering how strict Iran was and how proper everyone there is. I didn’t know sex change operations were legal in Iran, and I’m sure a gazzillion other people didn’t either. Anyway, I thought I would share this with you! Lemme know what you think.
Some campers reported seeing what looked like to be a giant lizard or as known as Dhab (Egyptian Mastigur) statue being built near Abdali. It looks rather funny, but really I can’t imagine its purpose, Can you? Though I guess it will be scary as hell if you happen to see it at night in middle of cold desert.

Update: Apparently, it was built by KOC for KD200,000 in Abdaliya west of Kuwait using recycled waste material to demonstrate their commitment toward Kuwait environment. Our blog friends have shared with us the story behind it and the making video.
The recent rumor about Kuwait intention to install gay detector (did they call it Gaydar?) at the airport is becoming so viral around the world. Actually it’s being used for the sake of sarcasm. In more detail:
“Kuwait is seemingly working on a medical test that will determine if you are gay. It plans to install these devices inside airports in order to block homosexuals from entering the country.”
Wait, I mean seriously?! I never knew there’s such a test ever existed on planet earth. I hope this is only some sort of misunderstanding. “Face-palmed”.
I came across this hilarious commercial from habbaq8 that I had to share with you guys.
Habba is a small business that started and came together recently. The idea came when a group of students decided to express and bring different cultural values and cultural diversity to our society today in Kuwait.
When I saw above photos for a dude using a crane to lift his GT to the top of his house, I thought he’s totally out of his mind but turned out he’s doing this so that Abdul Fatah doesn’t confiscate the car which is usually used for drifting over Kuwait. A friend of mine said Abdul Fatah informed all car registration companies to not renew any registrations for these cars.
Seriously, how many times have you seen a biker performing a wheelie let alone sporting a traditional Dishdasha? I don’t know if the above snapshot is real or fake but I surely hope it is otherwise we’re in some serious trouble.
