Hello all you oil lovers, thought I would post this video showing were some of the oil revenue goes from big oil to Sheiks trying to find ways to spend their billions.
Don't look for the name of this Sheik or his country in the list of donors to stop the famine that is taking place right now in Somalia -where most are of his same religion- because you won't find his name there.
Next time your in space you can enjoy the scar in the desert.


Hamad, the biggest name in the desert: Arab sheikh carves two-miles-long name in sand until it's visible from SPACE Each of us has written at some point the sand on the beach name and every time the waves came and erased everything, as if nothing existed. But someone made ​​sure that his name will be known and seen even from space. He has one of the largest car collections in the world at over 200 cars and trucks which are stored www.enam.ae... in a pyramid that he purpose built, outside Abu Dhabi](open to the public free of charge).[1] He constructed the world's largest truck; a replica of a classic Dodge Power Wagon, but eight times the original Power Wagon size This has four bedrooms inside the cabin. The vehicle also moves, and it weighs over 50 tonnes.[2]

You can certainly tell that this Sheikh has megalomaniacal tendencies, not just because he has his name carved in huge lettering, but because he had it done in Roman, rather than Arabic, script.

Clearly trying to spread his ''fame'' far and wide...

Although I seen this on another thread a week or two ago...
I'm gonna give ye a star for posting it


While I do think this is a waste of money...

I wouldnt mind having my name etched into the Earth...
"Evol Eric the Great"
That way a thousand years from now...
when humankind is long gone...
Aliens would be flying around on archeological expeditions...
see my name and think gee...
"Evol Eric the Great" he must have been Emperor of Earth or something...

Ham Salad or Hamas or whatever his name is... maybe he had the same kind of thinking?

Also... Its not that impressive... I would personally insist on the letters being 10 miles tall and 5 miles wide... that way its truly seen from space... I had to kinda squint on google earth... and then zoom WAY in to see what it was...
So its more like... "Visible from an airplane" than "Visible from Space"

-Yours Truly
-Evol Eric the Great
