Illegal Internet in Lebanon Explained

Posted By :

internet

I would add these one point to Farid’s spot-on video:
– The illegal Fiber optics cables that were installed between several regions were mistaken for rat metros, given that the rat population has been booming in Lebanon lately. So you can’t really blame the authorities here.

Watch carefully and help the authorities find more illegal networks!

Lebanese Finally Agree On Something: Thank you Ahlam!

Posted By :

A7lam3

I’ve been reading for the past half hour the replies to Ahlam following her ill-mannered tweets against the Lebanese media and people and I can’t stop laughing! That’s not the first time she insults Lebanese and she totally deserves this bashing.

For those who aren’t aware of what happened, one of A7lam’s fan, also known as Halloumi (Halloumiyeen bil jame3) tweeted at Adel Karam after he mocked the Emirate “singer”, so she retweeted it and insulted the Lebanese media by saying:

“This is a video for the beggars in the Lebanese media who have insulted their queen. A poem from my country responding to them.”

Then she replied to another post and said:

“I’m telling the beggars so they won’t keep on talking about their mistress and queen. Let them prove they love their country and pick up the garbage from their streets.”

I love how all the Lebanese online agreed on bashing her together. The hashtag #منع_احلام_من_دخول_لبنان has been viral for two days now. What’s also surprising is that Adel’s video on A7lam was funny, check it out:

What MP Elie Marouni Knows About Lebanon

Posted By :

Marouni

MP Elie Marouni was asked few general knowledge questions on MTV’s “Meen Bya3rif” and those were his answers:

What is the holiday that is celebrated at the end of Ramadan?
His answer: Ramadan

Who was called the King of Rock & Roll?
His answer: Michael Jackson

What is the name of Lebanon’s ambassador to the UN?
His answer: pass

Who is Zgharta’s third MP along with Sleiman Frangieh and Estephan el Douaiy?
His answer: Samir Karam

There are 3 main branches in Lebanese politics, the Executive branch, the Legislative branch and?
His answer: The presidential, the one that belongs to the president.

In which area was Yves Nawfal killed?
His answer: Bkassine.

This guy is clueless about Lebanese politics, Lebanese religious holidays and incidents that shook the nation such as Yves Nawfal’s murder. He doesn’t even know who’s the King of Rock & Roll. His Arabic is decent though, unlike Gebran Bassil.

Here’s the video if you don’t believe me. Thank you CHINN for bringing it up!

Lebanese Student Suspended For Two Days For Dyeing Her Hair

Posted By :

A student called Racha at Maghdouche high school(?) was apparently suspended for two days for dying her hair. The school principal wrote a letter to the parents saying that the girl violated Articles 37 and 39 of Law #590, which apparently dates back to 1974. Funnily enough, the law does not mention anything related to hair dying.

The incident was reported by Racha’s brother on Facebook, where he shared screenshots of the principal’s letter as well as a copy of the student pledge that they have to sign.

I had no clue we still have school principals like that in Lebanon, but if this story is true, the Education Minister has to intervene and take the necessary measures, and by that, I don’t mean closing down schools for a day or two to investigate the matter 😀

In other messed up news, Al-Manar TV is censoring men shorts now.

Donald Trump Bringing USA & Lebanon Closer than Ever

Posted By :

A CNN reporter recently compared the ongoing bickering taking place between Donald Trump and other Republican Candidates to the debates that take place between Lebanese politicians, and featured the fight that took place live on MTV’s Bi Mawdou3iyye between Alloush vs. Chaker.

[YouTube]

I’m finding this hard to say, but I don’t think our politicians or anyone for that sake can possibly sink lower than Trump, and I don’t envy Americans for having Trump as one of the favorite presidential candidates. It’s probably better to stay without a president to be honest lol!

Traffic Highway LED Display Board Installed in Dbayeh

Posted By :

traffic led

I spotted a highway led display board installed at the exit of Nahr el Kalb tunnel towards Beirut. The board said “Lebanese Traffic Management at your service”. There’s another LED board being installed on the Dora highway at the Forum de Beyrouth.

There’s always traffic at this point so I’m not sure they will be of any help. If anything they should get a bigger screen and show a couple of Friends or Seinfeld episodes every morning to entertain us while stuck in traffic lol!

Nevertheless, it’s still a good idea. Let’s just hope they are properly powered and installed.

PS: Nahr el Kalb – Dbayyeh road desperately needs a pedestrian bridge.

People Try Arak For The First Time

Posted By :

arak

One of the guys was like:

“I don’t get the whole water thing. Can you just drink it straight?”

After trying it with water:

“That totally makes sense now why we had to add water”

I recommend you mix Arak with شراب التوت (mulberry). It tastes great and is not as heavy as the original mix.

No One Takes Myriam Klink Seriously, Even When She’s Hijacking a Plane

Posted By :

klink

So Myriam Klink thought it was a smart idea to get on a MEA flight and upload a small video where she pretends to be hijacking it. Of course no one took her seriously but I love how no one in the video could care less about what she’s doing, they are not even looking at her.

Nevertheless, I can’t wait to see her try to pull this joke on an American or European airline. I can imagine the headlines already “Arab Bimbo arrested after hijacking a plane”, “Plane brought down after false terrorist alert”. It’s going to be a lot of fun 😀

Then she will realize that this is not something to joke about.

An Epic Mistake From Al Mustaqbal Newspaper

Posted By :

list

Not only did they include Hekmeh twice in the Lebanese Basketball League table, but they mistakenly took out Riyadi (Sporting) and put Hekmeh (Sagesse) in the lead. On another note, what’s up with the total at the end? Who cares about the total of games and point played?

Good job Mustaqbal! You made every Hekmeh fan’s day. Come to think of it, that’s the only way Sagesse will ever get to the top of the league this year lol!
