Update: I'm still not interested in visiting Dubai or any thirld world countries. And don't give me any crap about Dubai not being a third world country. Not to imply that it's a third world country; I know what's what. It's not North America and it's not Europe, so why should I go? Regardless of how many 5, 6, or 7 star hotels they have, I aint interested, got it? Do they even believe in a God with a big white beard and red pajamas who distributes candy every Easter and Thanksgiving? Doubtful. Do they have a hipster indie rock local music scene? Also doubtful. Do they protest Taco Bell at the local university? Again, doubtful. Do they have entertainment industry has-been's performing at local casinos run by Native Americans? Doubtful. Do my dogs live there? Definitely not, so that's like the nail in the coffin of the suggestion of my trip to Boo! Die!
