The Only Horoscopes You Should Listen To

A friend weirdly emailed me horoscopes yesterday and told me that I should read them. Of course I was about to delete them at first but then I noticed there’s the La Libanaise des Jeux logo on the bottom and they turned out to be hilarious! I posted a couple of them, check out the rest on their page.

I also found and shared a couple of old ads posted right before the horoscopes that are also quite funny!

FAIL: Is Your Husband Or Boyfriend Beating You? Get A Discounted Apartment Now!

Oh wow! I really have nothing to say about this ad. Exploiting victims of domestic violence to promote discounted apartments? Do you really think an apartment is the first thing on an abused woman’s mind? Do you think such a move will help protect women? Is this some sort of joke?

Even if the intentions of the company in question are good and meant to help women in need, putting a bruised woman’s picture on the poster was a terrible idea. They could have simply offered women discounted prices and that’s about it :)

#WeStink: Act Before Trash Becomes A Trend

It’s been over 100 days now since the garbage crisis started in Lebanon and the situation is getting worse every day. The government is obviously still to blame for everything that’s happening but there’s still a major problem in Lebanon, which is the lack of recycling and personal initiatives.

Personally speaking, we’ve been recycling at home since August and things are going perfectly fine. We’ve also been following specific guidelines to reduce waste and it’s working out very well. The municipality is even sending warnings to those who are not sorting their garbage properly and imposing fines.

Garbage should not become a trend and there are many ways to help in this garbage crisis:

1- You can spread awareness like the awesome guys from Comfu just did with the above video.

2- You can join the #YouStink protests that resume today.

3- And you can start recycling right now, and/or pressure municipalities, companies, neighbors, family members to start recycling as well. There’s an ongoing #letsSort campaign taking place right now where you share a video where you show yourself sorting the garbage at home and nominate 3 people in your entourage to do the same.

Of course you can do all three together (and more) but the important is to encourage recycling and start reducing waste.
