Desert(ed) Office

What happened here I am not exactly sure. In the middle of the desert (well isn’t anything in Saudi Arabia in the middle of a desert?) sits a CRT monitor, face down on a pile of rocks. A medium sized rock sits on top for good measure. Imagine in your head this is the Saudi Arabian remake of the infamous scene from Office Space.

Out here this sort of stuff isn’t actually that rare. People seem to take the American idiom “Take it out to pasture” seriously. When they tire of a car, boats, submarines (seriously) and even cathode ray tube monitors, the solution is to carry them out to the dessert and leave them to be forgotten.
