I just found this article with amazing pictures of the fireworks in Kuwait City last night and thought some of you would be interested as well...


For the paltry sum of just £10million Kuwait earned a place in the Guinness Book of Records last night as it celebrated the golden jubilee anniversary of its constitution in style by laying on the biggest fireworks display of all time.
A dazzling array of colours illuminated the skies above the country's capital of Kuwait City as a staggering 77,282 fireworks were launched over the period of an hour.
A representative of Guinness World Records announced the achievement on Kuwait television at the end of the display which had been watched by tens of thousands of Kuwaitis and expatriates on the Arabian Gulf Road by the sea.
The visual presentation marked 50 years to the day since the late emir Sheikh Abdullah al-Salem al-Sabah announced that Kuwait had become the first Arab state in the Gulf to issue a constitution and have a parliament.

I am probably going to regret saying this.

Disgusting when so many in the world are starving.

Puterman,

You should NEVER regret saying what's right and what many others agree with...Myself included.

10m can feed an entire Nation but was wasted in a few minutes of smoke and light.


peace
