    No, that country of stupid Bedouins that lucked into oil wealth will never be a superpower. They can throw lots if their oil wealth around but most of their people will always be inbred, illiterate morons.

    >next superpower

    A male to female ratio of 1.4:1 and one of the highest (and growing) wealth/income inequality in the world. That's a recipe for trouble.

        Not gonna happen. First of all, Indians are passive by nature, and second, any uprising would be put down with the utmost brutality. Saudis don't have to worry about bleeding-heart liberals crying foul over human rights violations. Second, no matter what the climate israelites are saying, the Third World wants to develop and progress, and to do so they need plentiful oil. The battle against carbon emissions is utterly and entirely futile. Oh, the Mideast heat waves will hit 125 degrees instead of 122 degrees? Big fricking deal. You think the Saudis give a shit?

        the arabs have one weird trick for solving labor shortages without destroying their countries
        they give foreigners temporary work visas with no path to citizenship and no right to vote and also don't pay them to be unemployed in subsidized housing or allow them to commit any crime they want with no punishment or even bail

        it's a pretty hare-brained and wacky economic theory but it seems to be working somehow

      This is a big time LARP. Saudi women aren't allowed to date.

          When it comes to local women, it most certainly isn’t. Dating is literally illegal. It’s even tricky to socialize one-on-one with a foreign woman you’re not related or married to, although there are plenty of elaborate workarounds, and of course people are at least somewhat more free behind compound walls.

          Really wealthy Saudis with international experience are more liberal-minded in a lot of ways than the country appears on paper, but it’s nothing like anywhere in the West, and they’re not hooking up with you unless they’re abroad.

          Online apps are at least a little misleading, not least because a lot of locals conduct various approximations of romance exclusively online, and have done for years. Check out the novel “Girls of Riyadh” for an interesting local perspective on that and other issues.

    I’ve been to Jeddah several times on work trips. It’s sort of OK; there’s a moderately attractive old city center and a decent waterfront.

    But I wouldn’t go for fun. Jeddah is supposed to be the most cosmopolitan and fun-loving city in KSA and there is almost nothing to do apart from eat too much and shop. And it’s both unpleasantly hot and surprisingly humid on the coast. I guess some people really like the climate but I am a sweaty temperate bastard and can’t stand it.

    And, of course, murderous absolute monarchy, medieval attitudes toward religion, women, etc. I’m not a fan.

    There have been a lot of Saudi threads over the last few days—if you’re still here, Saudi Tourism Authorities, you’re wasting your money. Just buy a banner ad.

    Riyadh for work for a few months. Hated it, left the country every weekend for either Dubai, Manama, or Abu Dhabi. Being a good Brit those weekends were basically just drinking and sunshine. Got back after that engagement and threw out my “learning Arabic” books - no way I was going to be the guy in the team who spoke the language.

    Worked there for a while around Dhahran. No alcohol (you could get it but this was playing with fire). No women (that was playing with WMD). Used to scuba around sunken war materiel for fun and even that got old. Shawarma was excellent.

    They’re trying to liberalise. Some of the historic sites are actually quite good. They are building Red Sea resorts that could be good for watersports.

    Saudis are much like Brits. They’re either refined and urbane or complete animals. Wouldn’t go back.

    I have. Only to Riyadh and Al Kharj (was deployed to PSAB this year). Riyadh has a few things to see and do, a little history here and there, and it's interesting to see the development that they're trying to accomplish to make it a modern destination.

    It still fricking sucks though and I can't see anyone willingly wanting to travel to Saudi for anything. Still worlds better than Kuwait City though.

    Gay here. Saudis have so much repressed homosexuality, it's crazy. Why do you think they want their women covered up? They are incredibly gay and I've hooked up with so many of them who look me straight in the eyes and tell me they are straight. They are huge divas and incredibly dramatic like cry and laugh at the same time and have all these weird idioms that are so over the top. Just a huge nation of repressed gays.

      Heard a lot of the same things from guys who were deployed in Afghanistan especially the Afghan National Army being all closet homos. They'd regularly proposition white Marines for sex but nobody I've met took them up on it, they apparently smelled like shit, used their hands to wipe the ass and bathed in dirty river water.

        Same vibe in Muslim regions of Russia like Dagestan. They all claim to hate gays but their favourite pastime is MMA which is basically half-naked muscular men hugging each other, and there's an extreme amount of homos posing as women on local dating sites.

        Literally every culture that segregates men and women socially is full of men who frick each other on the DL. Maybe they’re straight. Maybe they’re not. They take what they can get.
