I have no idea how this page is still up and no one reported yet. Check out the last few posts:

Enhanced security in central Damascus restaurants!
THANKYOU OBAMA!

The toilets are NOT a place to dispose of inert grenades! We’ve been having issues with this a lot lately, especially with the IS militants.
-Domino’s Syria Team

1 large pizza for every IS corpse in our Damascus restaurants!
-Dominos Pizza Syria team

We’ve been getting asked a lot about this lately and we would like to clear this up:
NO! We do not rent our ovens out for mass disposal of bodies!
More lies made up by Pizza Hut™!

Thanks Maia!

When Will Assaults Against Journalists In Lebanon Stop?

Posted By :

This is not the first time that Lebanese security forces assault journalists during an event or a demonstration and probably won’t be the last. I really wish I could understand why a policeman might go after a journalist. Looking at the video, the ISF officers seemed outraged and pissed off but I couldn’t figure out why and I didn’t read any justification of their actions.

If the journalist or cameraman in action did something wrong, they could always arrest him or fine the station he’s working for, but violence can never be justified unless he assaulted them somehow. In fact, even in that case, they are supposed to defend themselves and arrest the man, not assault him.

fish

There’s nothing new about this killer can-eating fish that has gone viral in the past few days. It’s called the puffer fish and it’s been there for the past 10 years or more in Lebanon. In fact, Saida fishermen exhibited tens of these fish back in 2008 in order to warn the residents of eating them as they are highly poisonous.

I wonder if there’s any strategy set to keep this fish away from our shores.

The World’s Largest Ancient Stone Block Found In Baalbeck!

German Archeologists have discovered right next to the “Hajar Al Hibla” in Baalbeck, or the stone of the pregnant woman, the biggest known ancient stone block. The stone is more than 20 meters long and weighs 1,650 tons. It was meant to be transported without being cut but archeologists will need to extend the trenches to determine its exact height.

Baalbeck is one of the largest Roman sanctuaries known and has some of the best preserved Roman ruins in Lebanon.

See that absurdly massive stone block? Yeah, that’s not the one we’re talking about. Look over to the right. German archaeologists working at the Baalbek site in Lebanon have uncovered the largest known ancient block.

The fully exposed block, which dates back to around 27 B.C., is the well known Hajjar al-Hibla. It’s located in a stone quarry at Baalbek, site of the ancient Heliopolis in Lebanon. Similar stone blocks measuring up to 20 meters (65 feet) in length and a diameter of 4 x 4 meters (13 x 13 feet) were used for the podium of the massive Temple of Jupiter in the Roman sanctuary of Baalbek.

Hayda El عفش La 2elak?

I’ve never noticed that sign at the airport but it’s quite weird that they are using the word “عفش” as it’s not a term we use formally. I know we say “Chellé 3afchak min hone” or “hayda 3afchak chi?” when we refer to someone’s bunch of stuff or furniture. I guess “غرض” would have been more appropriate.
