FAIL: Army Storms Into Battlefield Vegas

Lebanese media and journalists have become so unprofessional in this country that it’s really hard to believe any of them. The above picture was apparently shared by an LBCI reporter called Maroun Nassif (I couldn’t find the post though) about a weapons cache found in Saida, but someone made the link to one of Dan Bilzerian’s pictures and the Lebanese-Forces website quickly posted it and trashed the journalist. The picture is indeed taken from Battlefield Vegas which is one of the largest shooting ranges in the US.

Almaza STEALS Nissan Micra ad.


Almaza has stolen the Nissan Micra ad, the concept and idea and even execution are the same. "Wanted" means both "in the security sense" but also "popular with consumers". Nissan did it way before, Almaza is nothing but a thief. Exhibit A above. I rest my case.

By not replying, Crepaway replies to Shawarmanji

Crepaway - having been just spoofed by Shawarmanji - was too busy to reply. The alibi can hold in court any day of the week - they were busy carving burgers (the rest of us don't carve them, we crave them).
PS - dear Crepaway, even if you had invited me to sample your new menu, I wouldn't have come (not that you invited me I am not hip enough!), as a diabetic, your food is something I can no longer eat.

"No" means... Perhaps?

This year, the March 14th celebrations will take place on the 13th - conveniently, a Sunday - Moustapha from Beirut Spring, has a rule of thumb for knowing if there will be a turn out or not (his mother and her sisters are showing up, first time since 2005).

See you all at #GeekFestBeirut tonight

Movie Review: The Social Network

I wrote it last week, just as I came back from a special press screening of The Social Network Movie, which will be released on October 28th, courteously provided by the lovely and amazing guys at Cineklik (with no strings attached as usual).

My Thursday Evening Without Water #BAD2010

Yesterday evening I had a call from my husband listing my 3 options for a dinner meal:
1- I buy something ready made
2- He makes me a quick sandwich
3- I do not eat a thing
This was prelude to him announcing that I can not cook anything at home since there was no water (apparently something is wrong with our water tank) and we have only a couple of water bottles…

I’m now a Common Folk

Are we finally going to have a proper lebanese e-bookshop?

So far Antoine Online have their heart in the proper place. They are renewing their online shopping site and have signed multiple agreements with international retailers like Amazon to ensure you are really able to get ANY book you want.
