Super Pipe

OK, these construction sites in Salmiya are driving me crazy. Before, when they were in the new Salmiya next to Sultan, I didn't mind them. When they moved over to the Salmiya next to Marina Mall, I still didn't mind them. But now, when they moved to under my house, and they dig up the only exit of my street.. now I have a fucking problem. What is this construction for? Sewage? My complex from the front side and the back side is dug up. There is one pipe that starts from Salmiya Palace Hotel (opposite AUK) and passes in-front of Sultan, in-front of Eureka, across the street, in-front of Marina Mall, across another street, in-front of Al Ghanim Electronics and then all the way down to the end of Salmiya near Jeita and Marroosh. Thats one pipe that goes from the beginning of the new Salmiya all the way to the end of the old Salmiya. What is this pipe for? I was telling nibaq that I was gonna dedicate a website to this super pipe. Its not big enough for sewage, but its a good size for water, but where is the water coming from, and why are they sending it across Salmiya? Can't they get water somewhere closer? You guys must have noticed the pipe. Outside Marina Mall they have it stripped in red and white. Passes outside Richou and Paul. They better fucking fix the road under my house once they are done. I already regret not getting a 4X4!

BTW, have you checked out my new blog recently? I haven't added a counter there yet so I don't know if anyone is actually reading it. The blog is located at Some good articles there today.

Hey I have an idea...
I've thought your love for stensil-spray painting was kind of silly..but I see an oppertunity..

These contracters make bids for project and end up pocketing most of the money while providing the worst service possible to save money.
Grab your stensils, spray paint, camera, and a balaclava.....Attack those bulldozers and take pictures!

edjamacated, sounds interesting, dont know if i have the guys to do it though... we will see :)

zeina, thanks for your comments, the problem with miskan is that its a lot of pressure. I NEED to have a picture up by the end of the day or it ruins the whole project. With 248am its easier cuz I can post about anything I want whenever I want.

fadibou will be emailing later when i come back from work
