Stinky Dubai?

Friday, August 12th, 2011

Ugh. I feel that I can smell this from here, “Trouble in paradise as plumbing problems hit Dubai‚Äôs Palm island“.

Oh Tiger!

No.

No, no, no, no: “Hella number: scientists call for new word for 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.”

But “Hella-” is too much like No Cal “hella“, which I feel is hella lame.
