Does it annoy the fark out of anyone else when someone posts a link that's described only by a number?
 
2002-09-04 04:21:07 PM  
The ministry described the murders as an "ugly" crime, adding that it was tantamount to spreading corruption in society.


Uhm, okay. Multiple murders= drinking, dancing, and singing. Gotcha.

Slow year.

What's Texas up to now? 18? I don't think they can catch up unless they have a really good fourth quarter. They're really gonna have to buckle down and get things moving.

The Saudis had better get on the stick. They're running behind last year's count.
 
2002-09-04 04:23:41 PM  
The ministry identified the victims as Yahya ibn Hasan Harubi Jaber ibn Salman Harubi Hasan ibn Salman Harubi Fatma bint Salman Harubi and Shouqa bint Yahya Harubi.

Looks to me like he killed way more then 5 people. Looks more like 20.
 
2002-09-04 04:23:56 PM  
As long as they kill each other.... Fewer to kill us!

Oh, DigiFluid, so young, so Canadian.
That cryptic code keeps out the jews.

2002-09-04 04:25:39 PM  
most descriptive headline ever

/sarcasm
 
2002-09-04 04:26:24 PM  
"Hasan ibn Jaber ibn Mufreh Harubi was found guilty ..."


Just for that name alone, he should get a biatch slap.

Curious enough, they've removed their political cartoon for Sept 12, 2001, which would have been posted immediately following our Sept 11th attacks (remember they're roughly +8 hours ahead)

i understand why bush luvs his saudi's so much, think about it.

Texas has oil, Saudi Arabia has oil

Texas likes executing people, Saudi Arabia likes executing people

Texas has biblical law, Saudi Arabia has Koranic Law

The US has a leader that wasnt elected, Saudi Arabia has a leader that wasn't elected.

Our leader is part of an oil tycoon family, their leader is part of an oil tycoon family

Both our leaders have oil ties to the bin Laden's

BTW, the sign reads "Find which cup contains the chemical weapons and win a prize."


And, that's Kofi Annan on the right.

Resizing didn't go so well.

I like this story better on same page
Wife catches husband red-handed chatting!
By a Staff Writer


JEDDAH, 4 September - A man in the southern city of Baha was in for a terrible shock when he found that his chat-room female partner was none other than his own wife, Al-Riyadh newspaper reported yesterday. She learned his secret code name for chatting with girls from her son. The husband learned that it was his wife he was talking to only when she provided him her land and mobile telephone numbers for further contacts. Embarrassed and angry at being caught red-handed, the man rushed home cast doubt on her fidelity. However he was convinced of her innocence when their son told him that it was the son who gave her the code name as a practical joke.

Did anyone else see this article on the right hand side of the page?

SR100m auto parts burgled

Burgled?
 
2002-09-04 04:33:37 PM  
For those who don't get it, using the execution number as the thread title is a tradition on fark.com...
 
2002-09-04 04:34:16 PM  
I'm pretty sure everyone knows what the number stories mean... If it's from the Houston Cronicle or the DMN then it's +1 for the home team. Arab news, then it's +1 for the visitors.
 
2002-09-04 04:35:03 PM  
Should read SR100m auto parts bungholed.

Trying to sneak them out of the country.
 
2002-09-04 04:35:26 PM  
I agree with Digifluid, posting just a number for an article seems to be a bad thing. It just be me but I think every time that happens, someone gets executed.

Summon Tarvuz, holy jihad warrior and high defender of the one true faith

artie_lange: that is interesting. how come she didn't cast doubt on his fidelity, but he did on hers?
 
2002-09-04 04:42:27 PM  
oddly enough, Farkers have phalluses that look like a constellation of pimples... small world
 
2002-09-04 04:43:35 PM  
Have I over-used this?
 
2002-09-04 04:44:59 PM  
Saudi Arabia - 33 For the year.

Texas - 23 For the Year.

State Vs. A Whole Country and the state is only 10 behind.

Better hurry up Texas! You've got to be #1 in something.
 
2002-09-04 04:45:47 PM  
well at least this one deserved it. i'm not for capital punishment, but i'd say go for it if this guy was in my state.
 
2002-09-04 04:45:47 PM

I live in texas and it's pretty sweet, just don't eyeball anyone or you'll be shot and or executed. cheers.
 
2002-09-04 04:53:18 PM  
Nkosika... mind you they have about the same population... Other point of note Saudi's execute pretty much immediately, where in texas they pile up for decades. Facts are fun.
 
2002-09-04 04:53:27 PM  
Hasan ibn Jaber ibn Mufreh Harubi, now that is going to be one expensive headstone.
 
2002-09-04 04:53:31 PM  
Damm link didn't work!

And I had an extra 'is' :(
 
2002-09-04 04:53:35 PM  
Andonbray: As I have never seen it before, HECK NO. That's OK! Probably exactly what it's like too. Except one would be face down, no?

Funny how such barbaric executions don't seem to deter murder. I wonder what the implications are?

/sarcasm

Did he beat the 32 step record?
 
2002-09-04 04:55:22 PM  
What's this "33" jazz about? I've seen numbers for descriptions before, and I thought to myself "Self, wtf?" so in conclusion, wtf?

those cartoons are great!

DeadDuke

Thanks for the definition, but I know what "burgled" means. Even though I spend time chatting in Fark forums, I am not a total moron.

I just thought it was an interesting use of the word.

It's not everyday you see that something has been burgled, pilfered, snookered, or vanished.

I hear if you burgle a pig it will have a 30 min. long orgasm.
