Proof that time travel is actually possible. One steps inside this absolute monarchy, and steps out into the 7th Century.
In Riyadh on Fridays, one can go to the square outside the major mosque in the city and watch criminals get their heads cut off by a guy with a sword. Cool, huh?
In Saudi Arabia, women aren't permitted to drive or show their faces in public. If they do, then they can be sentenced to a number of lashes by a Shari'a court.
It should be noted, Saudi men also regularly beat their wives. Such are the benefits of being born with a penis in one hand a Qu'ran in the other.
In Saudi Arabia, witches are subject to execution. No, I'm serious. They executed a Nigerian nanny for putting a curse on her employer's family.
And, it should be noted, how do they execute witches? By burying them up to their neck and pelting them with rocks until they're dead. It's called stoning
, and sadly is nowhere near as fun as being stoned
Sounds fun, doesn't it?
