DUBAI — Two UAE nationals — Ali S. A. (38) and Abdullah M. S. (30) — were sentenced to life imprisonment for shooting dead a Sudanese national Abdel Monaim M. Y., who claimed to be bullet proof, was shot in the stomach and the head, resulting in his death.

I sent that to Fark earlier today - it's my first ever link submitted. You've gotta *love* this comment on it:

"Good lord, reading that article was like an hour with Dell phone support.

It was accurate, just not easy to take in."

Remember when Galadari was pleading for people to tell him straight how wonderful the KT was? Anybody got a link to that piece? The man needs to be told the truth, 'cos 'blog' is not a word they use down at the Kringeworthy Times.

I think samuraisam has it - I mean to save the stupid link, but forgot.

It's one of the most unbearable things you will ever read, literally crawling with insincerity and misplaced smugness.

I'm ahead of Secret Dubai, 2 to 1, in the race for greatest number of fark submissions _accepted_ from the UAE. But she beats me hands down on acceptance rate.

But she beats me hands down on acceptance rate.

I doubt it - they've rejected so many juicy ones I sent them:

- wacko jacko in drag in the women's lav
- women widowed seven times by age 32
- the he shagged/she shagged divorce-adultery case
- "decapitated" man speaking with choked voice
- divorce when hubby discovered bald under his keffiyah

and so many other, massively deserving articles!

I guess you meant "first ever accepted" not "first ever submitted."

I had a good May, then zip:
