Blog About Jordan Day
If you don't feel safe in Jordan I don't know where else in the world you would feel safe.

Where else in the world you would leave your car alarm off with two windows opened leaving your laptop and a dSLR camera without worrying about them, where else in the world someone in down town would follow you on foot up the start thinking he's chasing you and then you find out he want to give you your bag that you forgot in his place or somewhere in the street.


We can't say Jordan is a crime free country but crime is a very unusual thing to hear about in Jordan and maybe this is why we all talk about small little crimes when it happens.

In 90s we had a serial killer called Abu Shakoush (Abu Hammer) , the guy used to carry his hammer and knock pharmacists at head, he was one memorable serial killer in Jordan and maybe the only serial killer that we ever heard of in the kingdom.

After like committing three or four crimes he came to Jabal Amman, First Circle, just exactly 200 meters from my place, he wanted to knock an old grocery owner, he did it but apparently God didn't want that old man to die yet (he still alive and kicking, same grocery at First Circle) and so Abu Shakoush took the cash and tried to run away when Amer Al-Shaweesh (A Young patriotic who used to sell coffee at First Circle) followed him and caused some injuries to him that slowed him up; 20 minutes later Jabal Amman from First Circle to the third was filled with Police, approximately there was a soldier with his gears on every meter from the old Greater Amman Municipality to The Third Circle and of course they were covering the main and sub-streets.

Personally I've never seen that number of soldiers not even in Hollywood movies, two days later they announced that they've captured him.

Moral of this story, There are some people whom will always ready to protect you, Citizens and Authorities; Jordanians are different, although many are poor but yet they don't steal.

اهم التطورات العلمية في العام ٢٠١٩

Dear Microsoft : It's over. Our relationship just hasn't been working for a while, and now, this is it. I'm leaving you for another Operating system. I know this isn't a good time--you're down with yet another virus. I do hope you feel better soon--really, I do--but I, too, have to move on with my life. Fact is, in the entire time I've known you, you seem to always have a virus or an occasional worm. You should really see a doctor. That said, I just can't continue with this relationship any longer. I know you say you'll fix things, that next time it'll go better--but that's what you said the last time--and the time before that. Each time I believed you. Well, not any longer. You cheater! The truth is there's nothing more you can say to make things better. I know about your secret marriage to patent. You say you two are not seeing each other anymore, but I just don't believe it. You say you can live without patent, and I've heard that
