Really embarrassing! Or are we?

Here is the “Arab League” ranks (best to worst):

Country/Rank (out of 180)

1. Mauritania – 48
2. Comores – 50
3. Tunisia – 96
4. Lebanon – 98
5. Kuwait – 103
6. Qatar – 117
7. UAE – 119
8. Oman – 125
9. Algeria – 129
10. Morocco – 131
11. Palestine -132
12. Jordan – 135
13. Iraq -158
14. Egypt – 159
15. Bahrain – 162
16. Libya – 164
17. Saudi Arabia – 165
18. Somalia – 167
19. Yemen – 170
20. Djibouti – 172
21. Sudan – 174
22. Syria – 177

Really Good Job Mauritania and Comores!

Who is worse? Well, at the bottom of the list we have Uzbekistan – 166, Equatorial Guinea – 168, Iran – 169, Laos – 173, Vietnam – 175, China – 176, Turkmenistan – 178, North Korea – 179 and the “winner” is Eritrea – 180.

But more interestingly is who scored better than the Arab League? While most of the countries are from Europe, and putting Mauritania and Comores aside (being among top 50), your jaw will drop when you come to know that Namibia, Uruguay, Surinam, Ghana, Samoa, Burkina Faso, Botswana, Niger, Haïti, Madagascar and Guyana are among the top 60.

The U.S. is ranked at 41. In fact, Uruguay, Namibia, Samoa, Ghana, and South Africa all offer a greater “level of freedom of information” than the United States (and the so called “Only Democracy in the Middle East”, THE Occupation State of Israel – ranked 101).

What Happens To A Bowling Ball Under A Hydraulic Press

Hydraulic Press Channel is back again with one of his ‘fun’ tests

This time, he tested a bowling ball (and a less interesting bowling pin) with his hydraulic press machine. Watch the glorious explosion:

Don’t miss to watch if you can fold a paper more than 7 times with hydraulic press.
