There is no finer mark of a Pakistani man than a fully oiled, waxed and twirled moustache.
Shah is the expert, of course, but I'll butt in and post this image of a much-loved and celebrated Shah of Iran (19th c. I think)
Famous for being a retard, surrending shitloads of Persian territory to the Russians (Mr Moo!!!) and accepting some treaty banning Persian shipping on the Caspian Sea (I think)...aka no fishing for caviar in the Caspian!
He even poses like CDHagg!
After changing his five-franc piece Georges Duroy left the restaurant. He twisted his mustache in military style and cast a rapid, sweeping glance upon the diners, among whom were three saleswomen, an untidy music-teacher of uncertain age, and two women with their husbands.
On reaching the second floor, he saw another mirror, and once more slackened his pace to look at himself. He likewise paused before the third glass, twirled his mustache, took off his hat to arrange his hair, and murmured half aloud, a habit of his: "Hall mirrors are most convenient."
"She a Jewess! No, indeed! She is the prime mover in all the charitable movements at the Madeleine. She was even married by a priest. I am not sure but that M. Walter went through the form of baptism."

ATV Edoardo Amaldi, docked with the ISS, fires its thrusters as part of the station's reboosting process, which puts the ISS back into a higher orbit. Over time, the drag forces acting on the station bring it closer to Earth, so these reboosting procedures allow it to remain in orbit for a much greater time.
Europe at night captured on 2 April 2012. In shot is the Soyuz TMA-03M module that carried André to the ISS in December 2011, and a Russian Progress freighter.

Scott looks over his military service records and weeps after being told his apartment application had been turned down. The leasing manager said he couldn't allow Scott to move in because of an assault charge on his background check. Though Scott had his honorable discharge papers and his good-conduct medal, Scott said they meant nothing. 'I'm not a criminal. You would think this would be worth something. It should be. It's not, though.' (Craig F. Walker, The Denver Post - December 29, 2011)
