11/11/2003: De-faced products in Saudi Arabia
dave Tuesday Nov 11 11:56 AM
It sure is good they did that, 'cause now I have no impure thoughts!

I wonder how much of a demand for hair-coloring products they have over there.

Hey, somebody's gotta defend all those pure men from the Western girl pictured on the front, who is described quite directly as "Nice 'n Easy." Scandalous!
SteveDallas Tuesday Nov 11 12:40 PM
Good point, hp.... I assume they already took the "Nasty & Easy" ones off the market there.

They didn't do a very good job of censoring. It's kind of a half-assed job if you ask me. It doesn't stop you from seeing anything.
dave Tuesday Nov 11 12:51 PM
That was the point of my post, me too-er.
juju Tuesday Nov 11 12:53 PM
How dare you!
russotto Tuesday Nov 11 02:57 PM
What do you expect? It's a government job, just because it's a religious duty too doesn't mean it gets done any less half-assed than any other government job.
Torrere Tuesday Nov 11 06:05 PM
Now that would be one damned wierd job.

What a joke! How can these people take themselves seriously? I usually pride myself on having an open mind but displays like this really bother me. Imagine you were walking down the supermarket aisle looking for that favourite hair product or moisturiser and all the womens faces had been scribbled on. Absolutely ridiculous! And this is only the tip of the iceberg - I could rant for pages about how wrong the Muslim faith is in pretty much everything they do but I wont.

If this is what happens on store boxes, I wonder what they do to television...
dave Tuesday Nov 11 09:07 PM
A government censor is stationed in every household to hold little boxes over all female faces on the tube.
elSicomoro Tuesday Nov 11 09:27 PM
Or as stuff shows on TV, someone starts scribbling over their faces like this:

The blonde got a veil instead of the full burqua. Hmm.

seems the manufacturer could save money with plain brown wrappers.

So I found this thread where I mentioned a friend of mine who used to live in Saudi Arabia. I was never able to convince her to come on here and tell her wild stories, but here's one:

Adultery is a capital crime in Saudi Arabia (from what I have read).

There are parts of THIS country where it's a capital crime, also ... maybe not officially, but the "crime of passion" has a long history here in America, and elsewhere.
dave Friday Nov 14 01:34 AM
No, wolf, I read a story a few years ago of a guy being publicly executed for adultery. He was single, but slept with a married woman.
