people and stars in specific dying so young??? (and by young i mean they’re not 60 yet!)

Brittany Murphy this morning, age 32.

Stephen Gateley, age 33.

Chris Henry, age 26 .

Michael Jackson, age 50.

Patrick Swayze, age 57.

Heath Ledger, age 28.

Makes me ponder.

Death is always sad, and I know I shouldn’t think that it’s sadder and unfair because they were too young, but a part of me does think that..

need for speed? NOT!

this morning, i was unfortunate to witness a terrible accident, involving a motorbike, an innocent pedestrian, & a couple of cars.. and when i say witness, i mean i SAW the WHOLE thing from start to finish.. had to wait for the ambulance and police to finish up wrapping the scene,  announcing the pedestrian (who was a poor municipality labourer cleaning the side of the road) half-dead, rushing the very injured biker to the nearest hospital, clearing up the very TINY shreds of his bike from the road, and then easing the traffic that was backed up horribly..

i cudnt care much bout the traffic, it was just so devastating to see such a waste of life, only coz the biker was speeding and lost control of his bike.. why would anyone want to speed at 630 in the morning!? there is hardly any traffic, there wont be anyone breathing down his neck for being late at work coz its all too early anyway! sigh.. what a shame really..

drive safe ppl, seriously nothing is worth risking your life or that of others..

999

“Can you tell me the speed limit on Airport Road going toward Al Rashidiya?”

“I have been waiting for a taxi for so long, but all of them are refusing to stop … what do I do? “

“I have a traffic fine … can you tell me when it was issued?”

These are but a few examples of trivial and inane calls made to 999 every day!!! A staggering 573,471 calls were made to 999 in 2007 and these were not emergencies. Most were enquiries on speed limits on roads, location of certain departments, traffic fines, transactions related to the Naturalisation and Residency Department, trading issues and complaints against taxi drivers.

the rest of this article published yesterday in Gulf News here.

Where has common sense evaporated from the minds of these silly people??!!

eek!
