    The cover of TIME magazine for tomorrow shows Osama Bin Laden with a huge red X on top his face.

    Seriously speaking, I can eat Mansaf every single day.

    Mansaf, if you're wondering is the staple national dish of Jordan. It's comprised of emulsified-sun-dried-yogurt in a meaty broth (usually Lamb, but can be beef, goat, camel or chicken) Ordered by Ewwness factor from the most authentic to the least non-Jordanian

    The dish is simple, the Mansaf (as stated above) is loosely sprayed over a plate of rice sprinkled with fried almonds, pine nuts and sometimes raisins with a hint of parsley.

    But even though it's easy, and traditionally it's cooked by men (Men still claim their Mansaf to be far superior to that of women), you'd hardly find a single guy who has enough patience to actually do it. I know I have done it in the past,  but it was very time consuming.

    But thanks to the wonders of Marriage, (look-up "Domestication"), you can only imagine the look on my face when I opened my lunch box to find, yes yes ... Mansaf!

    Failure to plan..

    On your side, doesn't constitute an emergency on mine!

    I'm completely perplexed by the way some people work. It's so stupid and counter productive to wait until the key person on a project steps out to start a fire-drill that only that person can fix.

    I am really surprised how some people think, or work!

    Spinning Plates theory

    Have you ever seen those awesome shows where a juggler would spin few plates in the air?

    This can be the base of a major new theory in time management. Not only that but it can have an immense effect on business in a way that could revolutionize the way we look at prioritization of efficiency as we "get work done".

    Sure, we can take the most important task first, or the easiest one first. But what happens if all 15 things you have to do are ALL top priority? The ability to properly prioritize might not be useful at all in such conditions. The "Field hospital Triage" concept no longer holds, if no patients turn out to be "expendable" or acceptable risk.

    So what do you do in such a situation?
    ... You spin plates!

    The significance of the 5 prayers

    Some of my friends call me, "closet Islamist". I guess there's no use getting out of the closet. I am what I am, and completely by my choice. Not forced, or brain washed into it.

    There are certain things in this life that we sometimes have to take on "faith". We really don't know why, and for the remainder of this article the main idea is me trying to reason why prayers in Islam are divided in the way they are. However, this is not approved or endorsed by any Islamic fatwa, nor does it convoy any justification or ideas to find work-arounds.

    A while ago, I was pretty strapped for time, I had to accomplish so much with so little time. So I ran a little experiment. It's really not all that scientific since a sample of 1 can't really be extrapolated or generalized, but I think at least for me, it worked.

    The experiment was to create a work metronome.
