Aliens Too Can Read This …

Yes, that’s a satellite photo, and yes, there really is a gigantic set of connecting canals spelling “HAMAD” in Abu Dhabi.

Oil Sheik Hamad bin Hamdan Al Nahyan of Abu Dhabi
HAMAD - The Biggest Name in the World
This super Wealthy Oil Sheik is the Douchebag who paid to have his name etched into the sand so that it would be visible from space. Hamad, 63, a scion of the Billionaire Abu Dhabi Royal Family, has gouged his name in capital letters two miles across and half a mile wide.

His moniker is so big it can be seen from space (as this Google Earth pic demonstrates).

The tip of the “H” reaches into the strait that leads to the Arabian Gulf, allowing Hamad to fill the first two letters of his name with water. The “M” looks partially filled as well.

You know when sometimes you meet someone so beautiful and then you actually talk to them and five minutes later they’re as dull as a brick? Then there’s other people, when you meet them you think, “Not bad. They’re okay.” And then you get to know them and… and their face just sort of becomes them. Like their personality’s written all over it. And they just turn into something so beautiful.

The Floating Point `~`~`~`~`~`

I can’t float. It’s a fact and I am envious of my dear frendo because he can always lay back in a pool, relax and enjoy floating on the top of the water with very little effort. Unless I constantly tread water, wave my hands or kick my feet, I cannot float. The minute I stop moving, I sink.

For this I can visit the Dead Sea in Jordan. This is a place where anyone can float. Dead Sea, which lies between Israel and Jordan. The water is so salty and dense that anyone in it floats very easily 🙂

The Dead Sea has a salt level of a whopping 33%. To give you an idea of the saline levels, the ocean has a salt concentration of only 3.8%. And that my friends is exactly why we humans have such an easy time floating in the Dead Sea.

At 423 meters below sea level, the banks of the Dead Sea of Jordan are indeed the Lowest Point On Earth.

The Dea Sea isn’t exactly a massive expanse. It is only 67km long and 18 km wide at it’s widest point. However it is deep. At 77 m ( or 1,237 ft) deep, the Dead Sea is the deepest ultra salty lake in the world.

If  I’ll be there I will definately grab that ultra cheesy tourist shot of reading the newspaper in the water.

Through research I found that  Dead Sea was a major historical destination. It was a refuge for King David, a Health resort for Herod the Great and it was used in the mummification process for the ancient Egyptians.

I also found some serious Do’s Dont’s before floating in DEAD SEA !!! Beware of that.

The Final Leap (R.I.P)

Neil Armstrong, the first man to land on the moon as commander of NASA’s Apollo 11 mission, has died at 82 

Armstrong passed away due to complications of a heart bypass surgery he underwent just weeks ago. His 82nd birthday was on August 5.

On July 20, 1969, Armstrong made history by walking onto the surface of the moon and uttering the words “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” and completed arguably the greatest scientific feat of the 20th century.


Armstrong was born in Wapakoneta, Ohio in 1930. He studied aerospace engineering at Purdue University both before and after serving in the Navy as a test and fighter pilot he was selected in 1958 for the U.S. Air Force’s ‘Man in Space Soonest’ program.
