How should we judge a government?

In Malaysia, if you don't watch television or read newspapers, you are uninformed; but if you do, you are misinformed!

"If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing." - Malcolm X

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience - Mark Twain

Never argue with an idiot, otherwise people won't know which one of you is the idiot.
Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright - until you hear them speak.

Why we should be against censorship in a court of law: Publicity is the very soul of justice … it keeps the judge himself, while trying, under trial. - Jeremy Bentham

"Our government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no
responsibility at the other. " - Ronald Reagan

The fall and rise of a Land Cruiser

V8 Land-Cruiser in Saudi falls down a 60m well

You'd think that they'd at least put up a flag to let people know there's a 100 mt hole there. This happened in Saudi a few days ago.

In areas where there is fresh water under ground the locals dig wells. And they support the sides with concrete and stones to keep the sand from falling back in to the well. Some of these are up to 100 meters deep.

This particular one was 60 meters deep and 4 meters wide, located outside the small town of Riyadh in the center of Saudi.

The guys went out in the desert for a bit of 4X4 fun on a Thursday when one of them drove in to the well and dropped 60 meters to the bottom with his V8 Cruiser.

Rescue workers retrieved the car and the driver had a mild concussion from hitting his head against the wind screen. Hard to believe he is alive.
