Earthquake shakes South of Lebanon

Posted By :

An earthquake measuring 3.1 on the Richter Scale was felt yesterday in Nabatieh, Tyr and Sidon. Two days ago, another earthquake registering 5.5 on the Richter scale was recorded off the island of Rhodes and felt by some towns in Lebanon.

The only time I felt there was an earthquake, there were none reported the next day. I must have had a few too many drinks that night.

Woman leaves money before running for her life

Posted By :

Update: As per one of the comments, the woman is a friend of his mom and was actually leaving money for what she bought. Too bad we are no longer used to such behaviors in Lebanon that we assume the worst always. Respect and Apologies to her!

Update2: I changed the title of the post as well as we owe it to this woman. I am so glad I was wrong about her.

This is the video of the bull who escaped from the slaughterhouse and invaded MedMart on the Dora highway. The bull ended up falling inside the oil pit and sadly died.

But that’s not the end of it. Look closely at the video and you will see the woman at Minute 0:24 pausing to grab something (from the cashier’s box?) to leave money before exiting the store.

Najwa Karam admires Hitler for his charisma?

Posted By :

Start watching at Minute 33:51

Out of all famous leaders and personalities in the world and in Lebanon, Najwa Karam picked Adolph Hitler as one of the many men that, if combined, would make her ideal man. Seriously? Hitler?!?

On last week’s Mtv Lebanon’s Talk Of The Town show, the 46 year old songstress was asked by host Mona Abou Hamze to list different men, that if combined, would make her ideal man. Two of her choices were utterly appalling not to mention extremely disappointing from someone with her influence.

First she chose Hitler, yes you read correctly, Adolf Hitler, she said, for his “charisma” and his ability to carry out a speech. The sad part is no one really raised an eyebrow or even attempted to challenge that irresponsible and ignorant reply. How is it that in this day and age, a public figure, specifically a somewhat liberal woman, would advocate or publicly applaud a characteristic of HITLER? [Ivysays]
