There was a heated discussion going on the past few days between me and my friends regarding the origin of what we Kuwaitis call "Banak". A salty hard shell seed, brown from the outside and brownish green from the inside, that is used as snack. We often refer to it by its country of origin like Bulgarian, Turkish or Iranian Banak but that's about all we know.

Now I've done my research and I'm glad to say I have finally found the answer. Banak, also known as Baneh in Iran, is a seed from a tree called Pistacia Atlantica. A close relative to pistachio seeds but its nutritional facts are unknown because it's used extensively in the Gulf region only, especially in Kuwait and Bahrain. It is sold raw by weight and gets treated by boiling it in salty water.

You can learn more about the tree and it's seeds by googling its name. #pistacia_atlantica #PistaciaAtlantica

R. Lee Ermey you badass mother**! He's the reason I started watching retro and classic movies. Absolutely outstanding performance in Full Metal Jacket.

If anyone has any better alternative than ARAMEX please share because their service has become very inconvenient with unprofessional customer service where no one answering their call center.

Looks like he's hoping Apple will buy him a new car and hand him a free iPhone 7 for his statement.

Amazon.com customer service is the ultimate definition of perfect online service.

How inconvenient and inadequate is talabat.com customer service and live chat? For one, they take forever to reply. Two, they claim to manage customer reviews of each restaurant but either they're only approving positive reviews, or at least disregarding negative ones for that matter OR, which could be even more absurd, they could have handed that feature to the restaurants themselves as each restaurant reviews its own customer critique and approving/disapproving them.

I'm writing this because I had a very negative experience with one of the restaurants and have submitted my review on their app about three weeks ago. My review hasn't turned up on the restaurant's page yet a lot of later reviews have, all of which are very positive reviews.

Been using my iPhone 6s without cover for the past few weeks due to procrastination and I must admit using it like this makes me really appreciate the quality put into its design and materials. As a matter of fact I think all smartphones are under appreciated when being used with a cover, especially bulky ones.

After watching the final episode of Game of Thrones season 6 I had a void to fill, not to mention that my 3 months summer vacation had already started so I went surfing the Internet for an alternative to GoT and I'm happy to say that I have found my new favorite show. #Vikings
