The Best Video of Star Academy 8

This clip has everything. Obama, Queen Elizabeth, Shakira, Rihanna, Elissa, Lady GaGa, Cher, Justin Bieber, Hayfa Wahbi, and a lot more celebrities.

I seriously couldn’t stop laughing when I saw this vid. I haven’t laughed like this is ages. Bassam Faghali is super talented and hilarious. The way he imitated the celebrities, ALL OF THEM, is pure talent. It just cracked me up when he said “let’s do Rihanna’s S&M in Arabic, something like……. مولاي يا مولاي”. Oh my god, that can you imagine how it would sound like? I kinda hate him for teasing us like that.

Watch this clip from Star Academy’s season 8, and you’ll have tears in your eyes the whole time.

My Review of Comedy Night at Dasman Center

This is one more video from tonight’s charity comedy night at the Dasman Diabetic Center. It’s about guys and girls sharing an elevator ride in Kuwait. There was a whole scene before this vid, but I sadly didn’t shoot it. I’m really bummed out that I didn’t take more videos, but I was way too busy laughing to think about that then.

My review of the night is that it was Hilarious, it rocked. Do it again, and soon.

Mohammad Aqwa, the guy with the goattie in this video was super hilarious right from the start. Basshar Al-Jazzaf & Ahmad Waleed were were a good funny comedic duet; though I did think Basshar was funnier.

We got to see local comedian Huda Ma3rafi, whom was a blast. She was fresh, funny, and light. Her mom was in the audience, sitting right behind us, and she was laughing harder than anyone oat her daughter’s racy jokes. You go girl. Huda Rocks. Sorry I didn’t a video fo Huda’s segment, but I’m hoping she would have a few videos lying around online.

The main reason I went tonight, was for a chance to see Saudi comedian, Fahad Al-Butairi perform live. But, honestly, from what I’ve seen, our local comedians can easily fill up an audience all on their own (no offense Fahad).

Dr. Naif Al-Mutawa, creator and the 99 comic characters. He was there in his clinical psychologist capacity, and not as a respected comics author. Though what he had to say wasn’t a part of the comedy night, it was still enlightening, educational, and beneficial. I loved the way he talked, and I might, just might, go see him in other lectures. He was no boring at all. He’s got great charisma.

I had a lovely time tonight, it was very refreshing, and a complete change from the regular bore Kuwaiti activities. 

Fahad Al-Butairi at Laugh for Life Comedy Night at Dasman Center

Fahad Al-Butairi was part of the Laugh for Life comedy night at Dasman Diabetic Center. Check the vid from minute 2, it just cracked me up so much.

The video was shot and uploaded using the iPhone4 VIVA gave me.

Forbes’ 100 Most Powerful Celebrities

Ok, the number one spot was a surprise.

Who ever thought Oprah won’t top this list? Well she didn’t this year, Lady GaGa did. Oprah was the list’s #2.

Lady GaGa sure deserves to be on top. She’s got like 30 million Facebook fans, 10 million Twitter followers, and has topped the charts with almost every single she’s ever made; not to mention her own GaGaville\Farmville game. That’s true power.

So Proud of This: Pics of Space Taken by a Kuwaiti


These pictures were taken by Ahmad Al-Rumaidheen, a Kuwaiti Aeronautical Engineering and Space Science student currently studying in the USA. He got a balloon up 30,000 meters, took some pics, and got the balloon back down to Earth.

  • He took the pictures using a handmade balloon, funded by his own personal money. 
  • The ballon flew to a height of 30,000 meters, and was able to take pictures of the Earth’s curvature.
  • It took the balloon two hours to reach that height, and another two hours to land, 100 KM away from the launch site.
  • Ahmad flew the balloon in daylight, to prove  that the balloon did reach outer space when it takes black sky pics of the Earth.

On Sunday April the 17th at 7 am in the morning. A Kuwaiti drove 320 km North from Los Angles to California farms land, to send his camera to high above the ground, to reach Space, and photograph the black sky in the middle of the day, to prove it went to Space. The launch of his homemade spaceship was on 10 am in the morning. The Spaceship ascent for 2 hours, took pictures of the Black space, then 2 hours later, it landed 100 km east of the launching site. The owner then drove to the landing site, and picked up his spaceship, and viewed the images, and the project was a complete successes. The spaceship reached 30 000 meters above sea level, and photographed the curvature of earth itself. And therefore He became the first Kuwaiti to achieve that height with a handmade and self-budget project.

At this height, a human need a spacesuit or he/she will boil up because of the lack of pressure and cause death the same way as if he went out of space shuttle without a spacesuit.

The space Balloon reached altitude that is higher than all civilian aircraft, and all spy airplanes.  The environment at this height will lack normal atmosphere that you can see the blackness of space comfortably as shown in the pictures.

Ahmad Nasser Alromeadheen is an aeronautical and space technology engineer student and a member in the scientific club of Kuwait in the department of Astronomy. Ahmad has a very big passion to the exploration of space and Astronomy.  He worked as member of the Astronomy department with al’aijery observatory, the planetarium, and helped coordinate with other science club members in many eclipse and astronomical events that happened in Kuwait, and provided many public lectures about Astronomy and Science to promote this field in Kuwait. He also took pictures of the Nova explosion that happened in 2008 and was put in the Kuwaiti news paper.

Ahmad spend most of his youth time studying the stars and the universe in Kuwait desert to make a better understand of it and to help the Arab and Kuwait to catch up at the science race that the world is in right now.

One of Ahmad’s dreams is to be the 1st Arab to walk on the moon and the planets of the solar system.  A dream that could be impossible with current Arab situation, but nothing is impossible in this life.

Ahmad would like to thank everyone who helped him and encouraged him since he was young on science, for he thinks that he could have not done that, without the encouragement he received from his parents, brothers, sister, friends, and the scientific center of Kuwait. He would like to give this achievement as a gift for his parents to their wedding 30th anniversary, the scientific club of Kuwait, and for all the people of Kuwait and their Ameer, and of course, to every human been.

يوم الأحد الموافق السابع عشر من ابريل في تمام الساعة السابعة صباحا, توجه الكويتي حوالي 320 كيلو مترا شمال المنطقة الأمريكية لوس أنجلوس إلى مزارع كالفورنيا ليرسل بكامرته إلي السماء لتصل للفضاء ويصور السماء السوداء في منتصف النهار ليثبت بلوغها الفضاء.
انطلاقت مركبته المصنوعة يدويا في تمام الساعة العاشرة صباحا و استغرق صعودها ساعاتان تقريبا و أخرى لرجوعها بعد اتمام مهمتها بتصوير الفضاء الأسود, و تمت عملية الهبوط على بعد 100 كيلو مترا شرق موقع الانطلاق. وعندها انطلق المواطن الكويتي إلى موقع الهبوط و أخرج الصور من الكاميرا و بذلك انجزت المهمه بنجاح باهر. وصل إرتفاع المركبة إلى 30000 مترا فوق مستوى سطح البحر و صورت إنحناءة كوكبنا الأم الأرض.

إن بلوغ هذا الارتفاع يلزم الإنسان إرتداء زي الفضاء الخاص و إلا لم يستطع العيش من قلت الضغط التي تسبب في غليان الجسم في الداخل, مثلما لو خرج رائد الفضاء إلى الفضاء من غير زي الفضاء الخاص.

وصل بلون أحمد الرميضين الفضائي إلى إرتفاع أعلى من جميع الطائرات المدنية و منها العسكرية و تتشخص بيئة هذا الارتفاع بندرة الغلاف الجوي مما يجعل رؤية سواد السماء مرأيا و واضحا مثلما هي واضحة في الصور الملتقطة.  مما يجعل منه أول كويتي يصل إلى هذا الارتفاع بمجهود فردي.

الطالب أحمد ناصر الرميضين متخصص في هندسة الملاحة وتكنولوجيا الفضاء و كذلك عضو في النادي العلمي الكويتي بقسم الفلك له شغف كبير في مجال إكتشاف الفضاء و الفلك و عمل كذلك كعضو في مرصد العجيري, و ساعد في تنظيم العديد من الظواهر الفلكية التي حدثت في الكويت مع أعضاء النادي الأخرين مثل كسوف الشمس. و ألقى أحمد الرميضين العديد من محاضرات فلكية و فضائية التي ركز فيهم على توسيع هذا المجال في الكويت. و من أشهر ما نقل إلا الصحافة الصورة التي إلتقطها عن إنفجار نوفا فضائي في عام 2008
قضى أحمد الرميضين وقته و حياته في دراسة النجوم و المجرات في صحراء الكويت منذ صغره كي يفهمه بشكل أدق و أعمق و كذلك ليساعد الكويت و العرب في الارتقاء في سباق العلم و وصولهم إلى مستويات العلم العليا.

و من أحلام أحمد بأن يكون العربي الأول في المشي على القمر و كواكب المجوعة الشمسية, حلم يكاد أن يكون مستحيلا في حال العرب الحالي و لكن ليس مستحيلا بنسبة له.

و أخيرا يحب أحمد ناصر الرميضين أن يشكر كل شخص ساعده و حفز فيه روح المثابرة و التقدم في العلم منذ صغره. و يعتقد إنه لم يصل إذا هذا لولا تشجيع والديه و أخوانه و أخته و أصدقائه و النادي العلمي الكويتي. و يريد أن يهدي هذا الإنجاز إلى والديه في ذكرى زواجهم الثلاثون, و إلى النادي العلمي الكويتي, و إلى دولة الكويت وشعبها عامة و أميرها خاصة  وبالطبع جميع البشرية.
