Intersecting the Reality of Inception

Every time I go to the Cinema, I'm always forced to see a  movie at the discreet choice of my older brother, Now normally I would always disagree with his choice of movies ( The Sorcerer's Apprentice... Last Airbender) . Next, my brother takes me to see Inception. I saw the trailer, it seemed awful and with basically no plot.

Only until after I see the film do I ' BARELY' understand the story. It is a very long film (2 hours, 30 minutes according to my watch, so pee before you go watch :). The plot of the story takes a bit of time to understand... it's one of those movies where you have to think of the plot instead of having a person telling it to the hero.
Leonardo Di Caprio  put up an amazing performance ( so I wasn't quite upset with him ). The only problem I saw in this movie, was that it is VERY confusing. As in *Spoiler Alert* the characters go into a dream of a dream of a dream of another person's dream, where apparently time is VERY Slow ! (10 hours = 1 week )

Conclusion: Not a Bad movie, Good Acting, nice special effects although the plot... well Good luck figuring it out :)                                                                 2.5 out of a Scale of 5

The film gives an inspiration, that people can use their utmost creativity and imagination to their limits, making things possible. It inspires people to Wake Up and Use Their Minds

Vintage Maps of the Arabian Peninsula

Some rather old maps of the Arabian peninsula, details under each respective map.

Embedded text: This map of the Arabian Peninsula, published in 1720, shows Arabia Felix, Arabia Deserta, and Arabia Petraea. Other regions included are Palestine, Mesopotamia, Chaldea, Persia, Aegyptus, and Aethiopia. A large number of towns are shown. The title cartouche includes nine vignette coins. The tribal and town names on the map are those used by Ptolemy. Some are used more than once, with variations. Thus “Indicara,” “Iacara,” “Ichara,” and “Aphana” all could indicate the same place: the spot where Alexander the Great intended to build a capital on an island in the Arabian Gulf, enabling him to control the trade of the region and extend his empire (a scheme that he was unable to accomplish before he died).

 Archeological research suggests that this place was Failakah Island in present-day Kuwait, although some historians place it at Abu Ali Island. The map shows a peninsula near pres…

Bahrain - Old Photographs (Part I)

Below is a collection of stunning old photographs of Bahrain taken in the 20th century. I'll try to input as many captions as I can. Enjoy!

(The vast majority of these photographs were taken prior to the 1960s, by which time their copyright expired and is now in the public domain, as stated in Legislative Decree No. 10 of June 7, 1993 in respect of Copyright Law)





Why was King John the most unpopular monarch in English History ?

The title of this post is self-explanatory. And here's why John (reigned from 1199-1216) was so unpopular:

Under his reign, the English lost the land of Normandy to the French (Normandy had been under English control since the time of William the Conqueror). In fact, he was nicknamed "Lackland" because of this.
He was excommunicated from the Church by the Pope in 1209 (this made him even more unpopular)
His fiscal policies: He made people pay very high taxes 
John was a very bad fighter (he was nicknamed "Softsword" too!), and in those times, a bad warrior made a bad king.
John murdered his own nephew for fear of him leading a rebellion against John.
The barons (who were Normans) revolted against him because of the above reasons, and after deciding that he was a bad king (especially after realizing how he spent tax money).
Perhaps the most significant of all his failures (and the most humourous), he lost the original Crown Jewels in a swamp, in Eastern England. But, i…
