Do you ever watch "24"? It's one of my favorite shows, so it will help you lead a longer, healthier life if you do. And as you probably already know, each season's episodes take place in "real time," over the course of a 24 hour time period.

In the first season, super secret agent Jack Bauer was trying to save a presidential candidate. Last year he was trying to stop nuclear terrorists. Now this year Jack's trying to to stop the spread of a deadly, bio-engineered virus. And advance word on NEXT season is that Jack Bauer will attempt to capture me!! Of course, they will have to change the name of the show to "24,000". Needless to say, it will be a v-e-r-y l-o-n-g season!


But enough about Jack. My favorite character on the show is his daughter, Kim. And I have to thank Allah that there's no such thing as blonde Arab chicks. I mean, yeah, they're easy on the eyes, but man, some of them can be dumb as a dune.

In the first season, Kim sneaks out of the house, gets kidnapped three times, held hostage four times, shot at, and watches her car explode, all in 24 hours!!

In contrast, the typical Iraqi citizen can easily go three, maybe four days, without any of those things happening to them.
