I noticed the Saoudi have yellow Chinook helicopters for ambulances!
You can put a whole operation chamber in a chinook, some nice toys you can buy with that oilmoney, unfortunately the sheikhs cannot buy all their
I believe the emir of Qatar actually bought all his people by making ALL of them at least millionair (they have relative small population, all part of
the same tribe(?) and sitting on top of huge oil/gasreserves). On a documentary they interviewed a man from Qatar who just for prestige and social
status got a job as an executive, but he hasn't been to his work for 17 years, but still his salary gets paid!!! I guess it just looks better on
parties when they ask one of his wifes, what her husband does: "He is a CEO" sounds better than "He is a former sheepherder, now millionaire
living on welfare"
Not even the smallest sign of rebellion, the best goods/food and intellect, architects and footballers are flown in from all over the world, it's
such a perfect place it looks unreal ...
Well allmost perfect, 4-5 times a day huge speakers everywhere sing the praises of Allah Everywhere, there is no escape and people go to the mosquee
(you better have a good excuse not to show up). in the documentary they accidently caught the emir smoking a cigarette, he demanded that part be cut
out , some people might think that (while smoking is not strictly prohibited in the islam) where is tabacco there also might be a bottle of Johnny
Walker in the topdrawer, that wouldn't look good...
