Sheikh Hamad bin Hamdan Al Nahyan has a lot of money, and wants the whole world to know it. To that end, he hired workers to write his name in the sand. “HAMAD” is written giant letters to form a mile-wide name on Futaisi, an island that he owns.
Forbes shows a re-oriented version of the picture, but, unfortunately, it looks a bit different in real life. We almost don’t have the heart to tell Hamad that his workers wrote “HAMAD” upside-down.
Below is the image exactly as it appears on Google Maps, and not inverted.
See, we view maps with north pointing up, and lettering oriented the same way. Another sheikh should carve Trollface on the opposite shore. The alternative would be to spend all that money on something useful.

If you go to the official Apple website and look up its retail stores in China, you’ll get four results: Sanlitun, Pudong, Xidan Joy City, and Hong Kong. However, if you’re strolling down the streets of Kunming, the capital of Yunnan Province in China’s remote southwest corner, you might think Apple forgot to list its fifth location.

So now here are photographs of Plesetsk cosmodrome where rocket “Soyuz-U” was launched. This city has a second name, it is written on all the souvenir mugs and key chains sold in the city, but that can not be said aloud. :-)

Yesterday during parliamentary hearing of News of The World newspaper case in UK a plate with shaving foam was thrown at Rupert Murdoch. The attacker called him “greedy millionaire” and threw the plate. It hit media magnate’s face, but caused no injuries. This is not the first time of such an assault. There are dozens, may be even hundreds, of the assaults at politicians with “weapons” like eggs or cream pies. Let’s recollect some of such incidents.

Indeed John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was fascinated by the place and it is said to be a major stimulus for the imagination of the man who brought us Bilbo, Frodo and Gandalf.
