Rock concert stopped after guitarist arrested

POLICE arrested a guitarist at a rock concert yesterday, bringing it to an abrupt halt and angering scores of fans.

Organisers halted the ‘Rage to the Extreme’ show at the Palace hotel, Adliya, immediately after the arrest.

Sources said the Sri Lankan was apparently arrested because he was wearing a T-shirt bearing a caricature of a ‘devilish’ figure and the slogan “God’s Busy…Can I Help?’

They said the performer with Bahrain-based band The Mushroom Massacre, was taken to a police station where he had his shirt and body piercings photographed.

Police confiscated the shirt and released him after taking his personal details, said the sources.

He left the police station, wearing a new T-shirt, bearing an image of pop star Craig David, but it was not clear who provided it.

Religious leaders, councillors and MPs have complained in the past about rock gatherings, accusing youngsters involved of Satanic activities. Unsigned rock bands from across the Gulf arrived to perform.

It was billed as the first-of-its-kind event to combine a rock show and a battle of the bands, in which guests would vote for the winners.

It was organised by Bahrain-based Dallah Promotions and was scheduled to take place from 4pm until the earlier hours, with bands performing in half-hour slots.

Fans said there was no reason to halt it.

“Someone just came on stage and said the show was over, after that there were two breaks for prayer,” said concert-goer Yasir Shehzad.

“Everyone’s angry, but we don’t know what to do. Someone, we don’t know who he was, got on stage and told people to wear their T-shirts inside out.”

He said the organisers should have warned people against inappropriate clothing.

“I blame them because the sound was terrible and they should have told children that they couldn’t wear certain kinds of clothing.”

Dubai-based Bahraini Ali Ahmed, who had travelled home especially for the event, was shocked and embarrassed.

“I don’t know why they stopped it.

“There was no problem. Children were just relaxing and there were bands from the UAE and Saudi on the list to play.

“This is embarrassing for us because there wasn’t any reason for them to do that, there wasn’t a fight or anything like that.” Dallah Promotions Culture and Information Ministry officials could not be reached last night. Hotel officials refused to comment.

I would be interested in hearing your thoughts about this shirt. We have been putting it up on the website and off for quite a while now.

Personaly this shirt makes me feel a bit uneasy, even though I also find it funny as hell.

Excuse the bad pun.

Railroad Tracks, Space Shuttles, and Horses Asses.

I received this from a friend by e-mail, I tried to find where it came from and did a search but was unable to find the author, or the title of the original posting.

It was already worded so well I didn’t change anything.

 

 

Railroad tracks.

Isn’t this fascinating?

 

No…. It’s scary!!

Be sure to read the final paragraph; your understanding of it will depend on the earlier part of the content.

The  US standard railroad gauge (distance between the rails) is 4 feet, 8.5 inches. That’s an exceedingly odd number.

Why was that gauge used? Because that’s the way they built them in England, and English expatriates designed the  US railroads.

Why did the English build them like that? Because the first rail lines were built by the same people who built the pre-railroad tramways, and that’s the gauge they used.

Why did ‘they’ use that gauge then? Because the people who built the tramways used the same jigs and tools that they  had used for building wagons, which used that wheel spacing.

Why did the wagons have that particular odd wheel spacing? Well, if they tried to use any other spacing, the wagon wheels would break on some of the old, long distance roads in  England, because that’s the spacing of the wheel ruts.

So who built those old rutted roads? Imperial  Rome built the first long distance roads in Europe(including  England) for their legions. Those roads have been used ever since.

And the ruts in the roads? Roman war chariots formed the initial ruts, which everyone else had to match for fear of destroying their wagon wheels. Since the chariots were made for Imperial Rome, they were all alike in the matter of wheel spacing. Therefore the United States standard railroad gauge of 4 feet, 8.5 inches is derived from the original specifications for an Imperial Roman war chariot. Bureaucracies live forever.

So the next time you are handed a specification/procedure/process and wonder ‘What horse’s ass came up with this?’, you may be exactly right. Imperial Roman army chariots were made just wide enough to accommodate the rear ends of two war horses. (Two horses’ asses.) Now, the twist to the story:

When you see a Space Shuttle sitting on its launch pad, there are two big booster rockets attached to the sides of the main fuel tank. These are solid rocket boosters, or SRBs. The SRBs are made by Thiokol at their factory in Utah.

The engineers who designed the SRBs would have preferred to make them a bit fatter, but the SRBs had to be shipped by train from the factory to the launch site. The railroad line from the factory happens to run through a tunnel in the mountains, and the SRBs had to fit through that tunnel. The tunnel is slightly wider than the railroad track, and the railroad track, as you now know, is about as wide as two horses’ behinds.

So, a major Space Shuttle design feature of what is arguably the world’s most advanced transportation system was determined over two thousand years ago by the width of a horse’s ass. And you thought being a horse’s ass wasn’t important? Ancient horse’s asses control almost everything… and

Modern horses asses are controlling everything else.
