Since it's the beginning of the new year 2013, you get to see the headline "Top Events of 2012" nearly everywhere. Lots of those lists contains similar events, like the Stratosphere jump, Hurricane Sandy and the Olympic Games.
But the question is, what are the most important events of 2012 for YOU?
I mean, for example, if you're an Egyptian, the elections that brought Morsi to power may be on your list.
If you're Syrian, then the ongoing war in Syria may be on top of your list!
But there are other things, important things that happened in 2012 that may be of more importance than politics or a hurricane.
12-12-2012 is a unique date that only comes once in a life time! True ... but does that call for a lavish, multi-million dollar celebration? The Emirates Royal family seems to think so!

The statement also revealed that Kate is suffering from severe morning sickness. Between you and me, I don't know why we have to know that specific detail ... it adds nothing to the news!
Farce! This is exactly what a farce is!

I know that crowds can go crazy when a celebrity or renowned personality arrives in a certain country. But what happened when Argentinean football player Lionel Messi arrived at Riyadh Airport last Monday night was crazy! A throng of fans was able to skip security to the airport thus, chaos occurred. But it seemed like Messi was in no danger from his fans rather he was in more danger from his minders! Well one in particular!
Some photos surfaced last week showing a terrified-looking Messi with the barrel of a shotgun pointed at his head. The guard was so busy fending off the crowd that he didnít realize his gun was posing a threat to the football superstar. It was a good thing the gun didnít blow off and hurt Messi otherwise, Saudi would be in so much trouble!
