30 Days (Link)

Although I have not watched the show yet, main reason is that I don't have Cable TV or Satellite dish in my apartment, .... but the idea of this show seems very interesting to me!

You might remember Morgan Spurlock from the documentary movie (Super Size Me). The show presents different people with different ways of life to experiment. He also has his own blog! See it at:


Just to give you an idea ... some of the episodes are:

  • Can a man and his wife survive for 30 days on minimum wage? How long would you last earning $5.15 an hour?
  • A Christian agrees to live for 30 days in a large Muslim community.
  • A former athlete goes on anti-aging drugs prescribed by an MD for 30 days to reverse his aging process.
  • Two American friends learn to live without the natural resources that might be depleted from the earth in the not-too-distant future.

    Morgan Spurlock has a blog too, so visit it and read some of his writings if you have time :)

    The Machinist (Link)

    You might know (Christian Bale) from (Batman Begins), (Equilibrium), & (American Psycho). In this 2004 movie, I was amazed how much weight this actor lost for his excellent performance role. In the movie he weighed 120 lbs! You can read the movie reviews by clicking at this link:


    Christian Bale plays a role of a machinist who did not sleep for a year! I liked the story and the ending.


    Smoke Signals ... To Quit Smoking! (Link)

    I'm not sure how effective is this invention. It is a great blessing from Allah that I am not a smoker!

    According to the site, SmokeSignals tracks a person's smoking patterns to build his unique Quit Plan. Then it begins beeping and flashing when time to have a cigarette.

    Then, it gradually reduces your cigarettes and spreads them evenly across the day in a way that breaks up your habits.

    I don't think there is anyway I can test the performance of this invention ;)


    Beluga: The Super Transporter! (Link)

    The most voluminous cargo hold of any civil or military aircraft flying today!

    Its main-deck cargo volume is greater than the C5 Galaxy, the An-124 or the C-17 airlifters!

    Garmin Forerunner 301 (Link)

    This personal training GPS system monitors your heart rate, speed, distance, elevation, pace and calories burned.

The Forerunner's supplied software also lets you set up interval training, use preloaded workouts, and plot your course on a map. I have a friend of mine who have tried this cool gadget and he likes it very much. Maybe one day I will get one to be my personal trainer ... it would be much better than a human one! ;p
