New Solar-Powered Lights on the Dora-Karantina Highway


Road and traffic conditions in Lebanon are appalling. When there isn’t choking traffic, there’s no lighting (ma fi kahraba!), massive potholes, deep lakes and crazy drivers letting out the traffic’s frustration by zig-zagging and speeding to their dooms and the dooms of others.

Hilarious No Parking Sign

A friend sent it to me but I have no idea where it was taken.

Cool Unipole To Highlight Sayfco’s Ecovillage In Faqra

Redrock will be located next to Faqra Club spread on a 300,000 sqm of land. Apparently there will be a working bio agricultural farm producing natural organic vegetables, fruits and naturally fed poultry for the benefit of residents. That’s a pretty cool idea but I can imagine how pricey these chalets will be.

Lebanese-American Journalist Serena Shim Killed In Turkey

Press TV, for which Serena used to work, is not buying the car accident story and is pointing at the Turkish Intelligence. Serena had stated few days before that the Turkish intelligence agency had threatened her and accused her of spying.
The Lebanese authorities should call for an open and transparent investigation into the death of Serena Shim.

A Conversation With An Internet Supplier in Lebanon

One of my friends just moved into his new house and wanted to get a decent internet connection, so he called several companies and chose what he thought was the best plan for him. The internet supplier called him few weeks later and here’s the conversation that took place:
X:Hello
Hi
X: We are contacting you regarding the internet plan you’ve requested. U asked for the 6mb plan right?
Correct
X: Unfortunately ur phone line cannot handle more than 2mb
How come?
X: We r not responsible for that. We just check with Ogero. So which plan do u want? The 4mb or 6mb?

CML gets itself a Bourjeily treatment

CML (Caisse Mutuelle Laique) which defines itself as a mutual and social protection body with the mission to offer healthcare services to its members, released one very nicely concepted TV commerial. It's witty without being overdone, funny without sinking to slapstick, and gets its point across without dumbing down its viewer. How cool is that?

Religious And Ethnic Hatred Top Concern Among Lebanese

Egypt, Israel, Palestine, and Tunisia also shared Lebanon’s concern. Check out the rest of the study [Here].

MP Nicolas Fattoush Got An Apology Instead Of Getting Arrested

I was about to write a post on how MP Fattoush should not get away with what he did today and that there’s no reason not to punish him, but I just heard on MTV that Manale Daou has apparently apologized to Fattoush while LBCI stated that Judge Claude Karam reconciled the two in his office.
That’s just pathetic and sad and yet another proof that Lebanon is going backwards.

Manale Daou: Hero That “MP” Nicolas Fattouch Punched Today


I would insult and call the “man” above names, but, I’m sure he’ll want to file a lawsuit and I don’t want him to beat up any more folks at the Justice Palace. So, I’ll refrain from using any insults, but will allow you to make up your own. Key words: fat, douche, etc.

MP Fattouch Punched A Female Employee at Justice Palace According To LBCI

If this is true, he should resign immediately.

MTV Lebanon Twitter Account Hacked

via GinosBlog
It seems that they haven’t been able to restore their account yet as it’s still under a different handle. I don’t know who did it but that’s very wrong from them. You may disagree with a channel but there’s no need to hack its account.

MTV Lebanon’s Twitter Account Hacked


MTV Lebanon’s twitter account with over 420,000 followers (ironically, it jumped some 3000+ followers since the hack!), has been hacked, apparently by a pro-Hezbollah hacker.
The cover photo has been changed into a Hezbollah fighter with the yellow flag fluttering, and one tweet was tweeted almost an hour ago which says:
