Ow! That was my feelings!: MrSteve007: Ow! That was my feelings!: No, you did not, you farking nob.

I had on skis - it was ripp'n cold - there was frozen h20 in which I slid down on a slope.

Was it fresh natural powered on a double diamond run? No. But it was skiing in the middle of the Arabian peninsula.

I even mad a little video of some of the shiat I saw. link.

Heh, you come across like such a tourist douche. "Look what I did!" You were not 'skiing', you were participating in a publicity stunt. Get over yourself. Come out to Colorado, where you can ski for real, if you can.

You are getting angry because a man on the internet skied indoors.

One of those is acceptable government intervention for the public good. The other is not. Here, let me give you a hint.

//Still not impressed with Dubai skiing, the whole point of which seems to be bragging about it.

Here's a hint: not everyone who visits Dubai is coming from Colorado

gingerjet: MrSteve007: If you're not openly gay, traveling with an unmarried woman, and not a stoner, you'll be fine. Everyone I met there was really nice, and spoke English.

I was aggressively pursued by recruiter for a one year gig in Saudi Arabia and UAE.  I finally said - "dude - I'm gay ginger alcoholic which will either get me killed, imprisoned, or - if I'm lucky - skin cancer within a week of arriving."  He backed off a bit but not without first asking "how gay?".

/recruiters are only a step above used auto salesmen on the ethics scale

A draft on the 'how gay' scale:

1. Banging wife while watching sport center
2. Rim job by lovely lady
3. Ball slapping dude during double penetration
4. Smooshing dicks together for a simultaneous BJ from a big mouthed gal
5. Jacking it in front of another dude
6. Gay oral
7. Butzex

Here's a better prize:
She walks in the 150s, can't make 140 weight limit for her weight class.  What a fatass. I would never be seen outside with her as it's too embarassing.

I went there with my brother and it was actually neat. Why you may ask? We went on his business and had a "handler" on the trip that allowed us to know what was and was not allowed. if you keep things private- and as a formal guest of a handler- you can enjoy a reasonably good time. I assume it would be the same if you went to Cuba,North Korea or New York city. As decent folks we had no interest in debauchery ,drugs or dicking around. best part is there is no grass to stay off of.

MrSteve007: A Shambling Mound: Can someone give those of us confused by all this a good reason why anyone would want to travel to the UAE in the first place? With the obvious exception of business travel, of course.

Sounds like a silly place. A silly place that takes itself incredibly seriously, which is a very dangerous combination for the unaware traveler.

I enjoyed going on a weekend trip to Dubai last year:

-Went skiing

Endive Wombat: I honestly have no idea why you as a American/ Westerner would travel to such restrictive places like the Middle East.  Even if you have bukkets and bukkets of money...I see no point in giving my money to a nation that arrests you for having marijuana on the BOTTOM of your shoe.

Well...there's the whole ancient cradle of civilization thing. Totally not worth giving up your pot and bikini for a week.

Big Man On Campus: It's amazing to me how much America want's to be liberal, but still has a huge problem with public nudity in places it would otherwise be accepted in the developed world, like beaches.

There are no true liberals left in America. I only see democrats who think they're fighting for a liberal cause, but it's really just statism they're asking for.

Not that this thread had anything to do with America...

Listen, boy, in Alabama ain't no one trying to be liberal... and our beaches are for sopping up job-creating oil, not for me to see your momma's caboose.
