The worst part is that some of the shadier contractors have been known to save time and money by opening a manhole and dumping the shit, untreated, into the sewer. This means raw sewage washing up on all those pretty beaches.

See how great things are without all that nasty government regulation?

And this is why I don't mind paying taxes.

Two guys making dismissive remarks about darkie curry eating sanitation workers who drink/eat raw sewage and speak in faux-Indian accents.
For the people who commented above, these trucks are hardly an argument against regulation and taxes; this is the system that regulation is paying for. You can debate how well planned all this is, but it isn't like we run into the same intertemporal tussle everywhere else in the world: people wanted stuff built fast to support short term growth; infrastructure fell behind.
Yes there are some problems with illegal dumping, but they are dealing with it; just like everywhere else in the world.
you own a poop truck, don't you?
No, but you can smell the south asian derision their voices (forget about Dubai itself), and it gets me internet mad.
Oil companies and construction companies run Dubai under the auspices of a bunch of Allah-anointed princes. Why would they invest in infrastructure if short-term cost analysis makes it more profitable to use 16 ton gas guzzling trucks to haul human feces around in a circle?
These two guys are just contractors stuck in Dubai and their derision, as well as their completely playful jokes about curry, are probably well deserved.
Many of you must not know what Dubai is actually like. There is an entire underclass of south asians who do all the (dirty) work there (these guys aren't confusing 'native' arabs with people who 'eat curry', they are directly referring to the south asian underclass in a demeaning way). If this doesn't smack of, say, a monocoled Brit kicking around an Indian coolie; you should talk to a few people an familiarize yourself with that era.
Baleen seems to suggest that only in Dubai do we burn gasoline for waste management (and we drive it around 'in circles' no less, for no apparent reason) and the people there are far too stupid to invest in infrastructure. The earlier commentators seem to suggest that this situation has something to do with the lack of regulation and tax paying*.
They are dealing with balancing (and sustaining) very strong short term growth with long term management. They seem to be doing fine, leave all of your righteous judgements at the door with the two guys in the video.
*Dubai doesn't need to aggressively collect taxes right now, they invest their oil revenues in their development (they have plenty), and have a strategic tax rate in place (which they can obviously afford) to promote growth. Regulation is pretty heavy in Dubai as well (look no further then how foreigner visas are handled, and various laws on what you can and can't do in public).
There's poop in all of those trucks.
Uhhh, my post?
How in the world is what I am saying anti-tax?
your comment hits it on the head.
There are lots of reasons to hate dubai, but insulting the Bangladeshi workers that clean up after these two idiots is pure racism.
Did I laugh or enjoy it? Nope.

Maybe it's all the Saint's Row, but I kinda want to see one or several of those trucks hose down the two chucklefucks filming. And their houses, and places of employment, etc.

"let's get this crap moving!"

If those douchebags run out of money before they run out of debt in Dubai, they will be forced to stay and will never be allowed to leave.
Let's all pray they love to gamble.

I'd hate to see all that good shit go to waste.
|Gojira1000 - 2011-12-06 |
Boring vid but the comments were worth two extra stars for drama and squealing.
|Bisekrankas - 2011-12-06 |
First time I see more drama over a clip on poeTV than Youtube comments
|Jet Bin Fever - 2011-12-06 |
I've been to Dubai and it's a truly surreal place. I'm really surprised they didn't make the World's Largest Sewage Container and charge admission to see this or something. I mean, everything else there is just so ridiculously overinflated and meaningless.
