Did You Like YouStink’s Furn el Chebbak FlashMob?

Posted By :


A young pregnant woman was shopping in Furn el Chebbak, her water broke, people rush to help her out and she ends up giving birth to a …. garbage bag. The act was well executed and performed by #Tol3etRi7etkoun and they were able to shock and awe the bystanders but I didn’t quite understand the idea to begin with. Giving birth to garbage bags? What does that even mean and how is it related to the garbage crisis?

They are pointing out at the ongoing garbage crisis, the state of hospitals in Lebanon and other health care issues but showing a woman giving birth to a garbage bag was a bad idea in my opinion.

What did you think?

Closing Open Manholes During Winter

Posted By :


As soon as it starts to rain, roads are flooded with water (and garbage recently) in Lebanon and open manholes are no longer visible to drivers and pedestrians. Open manholes pose serious threat to commuters and the concerned parties (Ministry of Public Works and Municipality) rarely work on closing them during storms or at least putting warning signs around them.

Of course we as citizens can help prevent painful incidents by closing down these open manholes when possible and that’s what this guy did today. However I advise you to be careful when closing manholes and watch out for reckless drivers.



Thanks Yorgui!

Jounieh Bay Like You’ve Never Seen It Before

Posted By :


The video was shot by 961FastCam. The Jounieh bay is one of the most beautiful in Lebanon but it’s unfortunately ruined by the illegal beaches and the lack of decent beach resorts. This region has so much potential but no one is willing to fix things up.

We should be competing with Greece and Aiya Nappa instead of begging tourists (and locals) to visit Keserwan and the Jounieh bay.

Enjoy the video!


Take The Ice Bucket Challenge To Help Raise Awareness on ALS

Posted By :


Check out the ice bucket challenge video that a group of Lebanese took part in to raise awareness on ALS.

You can read more about ALS [Here].

ALS was first found in 1869 by French neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot, but it wasn’t until 1939 that Lou Gehrig brought national and international attention to the disease. Ending the career of one of the most beloved baseball players of all time, the disease is still most closely associated with his name. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed.

Iceland’s Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) TimeLapse By Karim BouKarim

Aurora Borealis is a beautiful natural light display in the sky that can extend as high as 640km above the earth’s surface. It is the result of “collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth’s atmosphere”.

Here’s a time-lapse shot by a Lebanese Photographer using a Canon 6D over a period of 3 days.
