Well, good luck with it, whatever cryptic job it may be. You stuck with the last one for a fair old while, so I hope this one works out for you.

(Well yesterday)

Went to Arcade Club, amazing as always. Very busy but so many games to play on. Going to the all you can eat chinese buffet beforehand probably wasnt a good move as i felt too full !

Got to level 98 on Bubble Bobble, those later levels are tricky as anything. Got stuck on level 98, going to have to watch that one on youtube. Tried a bit more VR but embarassingly it just makes me feel very queezey.

Love the old retro games like anything, soooo many classic games there. Went to the 'modern' floor but not into those games too much. Had a 4 player Darius game which was cool though and the Pacman battle royale type of game looked really good.

Today I'm going back onshore after a week at sea. Never before have I experienced seasickness like I did this trip, proper Exorcist projectile vomiting stuff as the weather picked up the first day I arrived and I didn't have time to adjust.

Now i of course want the guy to be released 100% but i cant believe what he was doing...

"Matthew Hedges, 31, always said he was innocent and had been researching the country's security strategy for a PhD."

He must be intelligent, PhD and all that. But i would never go to a country like UAE in this day and age and research a countrys security strategy ! Thats just asking for trouble full stop. Bit like going to russia to check on their security strategy, just asking for trouble 100%. I'm sure he wasnt spying (to be fair none of us know that) but why not research Hollands security strategy etc ? Crazy the situations some people put themselves in

I've been to Dubai (really stunning place), you cant kiss/show signs of affection publically. I would never go there to research a security strategy, ridiculous.You have to go by their laws, you hear every month or so about instances with westerners being stupid either getting drunk or that one girl and bloke at it on the beach and 'surprise surprise' they get nicked.

I just wrote a lengthy post, but decided to delete it as it would probably have fallen foul of the rules against discussing politics.

However, yeah, there's more to this story. The guy has lived in the country on and off for twenty years, hence his interest in it. Also, he went there with the approval of his supervisor and department to conduct a series of pre-arranged interviews, so it's not like he's just been bumbling around asking awkward questions to the wrong people in blithe ignorance of what could happen.

If you want to do something to help, there's a petition here:
