The massive iron meteorite is roughly two meters wide and might be the largest ever discovered on Mars. I have no idea why they called it Lebanon and whether it is related to our country or not. There’s a smaller piece that was found as well and dubbed “Lebanon B”.
It is worthy noting that the director of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory is a Lebanese called Charles al-Achi. Check out [Here] other prominent Lebanese working for Nasa.
This rock encountered by NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover is an iron meteorite called “Lebanon,” similar in shape and luster to iron meteorites found on Mars by the previous generation of rovers, Spirit and Opportunity. Lebanon is about 2 yards or 2 meters wide (left to right, from this angle). The smaller piece in the foreground is called “Lebanon B.” [Nasa]
Even though this shameful “gay exam” was banned, some doctors are apparently still using it. I won’t bother explain against what happens during this exam because it’s outrageous, humiliating and is considered torture by the UN. Whomever this doctor is, he should be banned for life.
Lebanon needs to drop Article 534 once and for all and stop considering homosexuality a criminal offence in Lebanon. We need more than just exceptional rulings and banning anal exams.
Men suspected by authorities of being homosexual are still being anally “tested” in Lebanon despite a ban on the practice issued by health officials, it has been reported. Doctors from the Lebanese Order of Physicians have described the method of determining whether or not a man is gay as useless and akin to “torture”.
The test involves forcefully inserting an egg-shaped metal object into the rectum, which a 2012 Human Rights Watch report said “constitutes degrading and humiliating treatment” in violation of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. According to the Lebanese Daily Star, however, a forensic doctor was hired in January by members of the police’s “Moral Protection Bureau” to determine the sexuality of five Lebanese and Syrian men accused of being gay.

I’ve always wondered why these crazy motorists are not stopped by the cops specially that they perform their stunts on the highway. Well it seems the cops don’t notice them somehow.
PS: I am still finding this picture hard to believe and trying to check if it could be fake or not, even though it was posted by Yasa.
I still prefer the old ones.
Every now and then, there’s a new article that comes out and bashes what’s happening at beach resorts in Lebanon and during beach parties. All of a sudden, foam parties turn into nudist parties and beach parties with exotic dancers turn into porn movies and cabarets. The funny thing about this article from Al Jomhouria is that the author seems to be ok with the nudist beaches in Mykonos and the gay-friendly atmosphere, yet is outraged by exotic dancers and hot beach parties. Moreover, have you seen what a cabaret looks like? Did you ever watch a porn film? How can you possibly compare dirty dancing and a drunk chick in a bikini to a porn movie?
There’s nothing wrong happening at these beach resorts in Lebanon and I am sure a lot of people are enjoying these parties and having a blast. These things happen all the time in Greece and Cyprus and people who don’t like it just don’t go there. It’s as simple as that.
Last but not least, the only way Lebanese will stop being so superficial and care about other’s looks is when they stop judging people for what they are and let them do whatever they wish to. That’s why no one cares how you dress or what you look like in Mykonos and homosexuals are accepted in their community.
Hariri’s Selfie while biking in Riyadh
Some are saying this selfie is only few days old. If that’s the case then it’s a very bad time to be doing so specially with what’s happening in Lebanon and Gaza.
The iPhone 4s is 3 years old and still selling for $399, at least in Lebanon. I don’t think it’s a good deal because you could spend an exyta 150$ and get the latest Samsung S5 or the iPhone 5.

I loved the Volkswagen ad and the Lufthansa ad below is a smart one as well. Here’s what other brands had to say about Germany’s win.
