Saudi Arabia Executes Four for Drug Possession

Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

I went to Saudi for the first time well over a decade ago to meet with some local construction contractors for a joint venture project there. After we signed the agreement, the four Saudi nationals who escorted me around pulled out five cans of Pepsi cola and said we must celebrate with an American drink in my honor. They each looked around like they were trying not to be caught doing something illegal or immoral as they sneaked little sips and then concealed the Pepsi cans the best they could. When I asked why the stealth, they said there was an official boycott of all American soft drinks to show Saudi Arabia's disapproval of the US support for Israel, and getting caught drinking Pepsi cola by the roving morality police would surely result in them being beaten and locked up.

english teacher x has a great deal to say about it.
But not much nice.

I have similarly met very few people that liked working with Koreans in Korea.

The pay is great, but only because of conditions.

I'd work for survival wages on Lake Malawi, but no way I'm going to Saudi even with $4K/month until I'm really, really down and out.

The bridge option might be more preferable.

Ah yes, but YSSS contains a covert "shaitanic" message.

One quick lop and it's over.
In films and tv it's one quick lop, in reality it is often five or six hacks before it's over, especially if, like ISIS, they use a less than razor sharp weapon. :hattip:
