Boys and their toys

A very interesting and amusing documentary about 4 of the richest men in the Middle East and how they live. Click here to view it.

I still can't, for the life of me, figure out how to embed videos on my blog. I've tried with YouTube, I've tried with Google no avail! Can someone attempt to explain to me what I'm doing wrong? I'm not that technologically inept!

Anyway, back to the documentary...It follows the lives of 4 filthy rich men:

  • Sheikh Maktoum Hasher Maktoum al Maktoum, a member of the Dubai ruling family, who brought the A1 race to Dubai.
  • Sheikh Hamad bin Hamdan al Nahyan, known as the "Rainbow Sheikh", a member of the Abu Dhabi ruling family, whose eccentric vehicle designs are out of this world.
  • Mohammad bin Sulayem, the famous Dubai rallye-driver, whose car collection is worth more than 10 million dollars.
  • Sheikh Mohammed bin Issa al Jaber, the self-made Saudi billionnaire hotelier, with luxury properties all around Europe and parts of the middle-east.

It's like "Lifestyles of the rich and famous"...the Arab edition! Check it's quite mind-boggling...and entertaining.

Anon...if you're unhappy with what you're reading here, how 'bout you f**k off and find yourself something more interesting to do with your life?

Websites like youtube already have an embed-video link. You can find it when you see an "object" HTML tag. You just need to copy/paste it into your blog post.

the guy with the rainbow cars is quite funny. what did you think of his car-boats? i thought it was quite entertaining. and the sarcasm of the voice behind the camera - saying that the guy doesn't need to work but he has many ideas to keep him busy...funny.
