Safety Message

Everybody thinks terrorism when you mention that you work in the Middle East; but in point of fact you're at WAY bigger risk of getting killed in a car accident than to of getting involved in an awful compound massacre.

People drive like fucking lunatics. Some combination of bottled-up aggression, sexual frustration, cheap gas, and extensive empty highways cause the residents to love driving fast. The young guys particularly love drag racing and drift racing. The Kingdom has one of the highest rates of death from motor vehicle accidents in the world.

We are called upon in my job here at the Big Corporate Entity to give safety messages to the trainees; these often involve exhorting them to drive safely.

Here was this week's safety message.

Rest in peace, Paul Walker. He drift races with the angels now.
