Just how sick can people get?!

I assume the older kid was already bullying little Abbas before these sick parents decided to teach him how to really beat people up!

Thanks @TrellaLB

Update:

The internal security forces have identified the people behind this video and arrested them tonight at El Ramel El Ali.

Why is our internet getting worse?

Following the ministry of telecommunications’ announcement two month ago about the broadband internet packages upgrade and price reductions, you would expect the average speed across the country to be significantly better and our global ranking to improve a bit. But unfortunately, this doesn’t seem like the case since a lot of ADSL subscribers are complaining about their connection!

The chart above from netindex.com proves people are right. While July was supposed to witness the new plans taking effect, it is instead turning into the worst month for our internet with the lowest speed in over a year!

If Boutros Harb knew the upgrades were not feasible then he should have simply just reduced the prices instead of messing the speeds for the sake of coming out better than his predecessor Nicolas Sehnaoui.

It’s very clear that the top priorities for the minister right now is to work on upgrading the infrastructure to provide households with better speeds as well as supplying internet providers with more E1s to cater for their subscribers.

The ISF can forever claim that they have their “own ways” to stop these stupid motorbikers. But in fact nothing is being done that even 12 years old kids now do wheelies on the streets!

NSFW – 1973 Liberality VS 2014 Rigorism in Lebanon

I just stumbled upon this old scene from a 1973 Lebanese movie and quickly recalled AlJoumohouri’a article yesterday bashing the beach parties at C-Flow Jbeil.

Untitled-13_1_

مسبح أو كاباريه؟

ففي نهاية الأسبوع قررت الصديقات الاستجمام في لبنان وزيارة أحد المسابح المميزة التي تجمع اللبنانيين على اختلاف أعمارهم وطوائفهم وإنتماءاتهم السياسية، وتهتم بهم وتقدّم لهم «خدماتٍ خاصّة».

فإستُقبلن بحفاوة وترحيب كبيرين ودخلن المسبح الضخم محاولاتٍ الاختلاط بلبنانيين ولبنانيات أمثالهنّ لكنّ الامر لم ينجح. فما رأينه على شاطئ الـ«سي ف» اللبناني من مظاهر خلاعة وسكر ورقص مبتذل وتصرّفات وقحة غير أخلاقية يتجاوز بأشواط مشاهدَ العراة على الشواطئ اليونانية.

فلِيضمن المنتجع لرواده عيشهم تجربة مريحة ومسلية مليئة باللذة والمتعة والشغف، أوجد «باراً» في وسط بركة السباحة وسمح لعشاقه بإصطحاب مشروبهم معهم الى المياه. أما الموسيقى الحماسية التي يلعبها فتدفعهم الى الجنون وتطلق العنان لمخيّلتهم فيبتكرون رقصات مبتذلة تصل الى حدّ ممارسة الجنس علناً.

لا يكتفي المنتجع بتدليل زبائنه بهذا القدر فقط، وإنما في ذروة اللذة يحضر لهم ثلاث عارضات من جنسيات غير لبنانية يرقصن على المنصّة أمام أعين مئات الرجال والنساء، إلّا أنه لا يسمح إلّا للفتيات بمشاركة العارضات الرقص مباشرةً على المنصّة.

I found it really funny that back in the ’70s it was quite normal for Lebanese actors to french kiss in movies and even perform erotic scenes, while Beirut also had licensed brothels and our newspapers used to advertise vibrators!

Fast forward 40 years, sex toys are banned from the Lebanese market, we make a fuss in the press every time a couple of actors kiss on TV, and then comes a journalist from Al-Joumhouria criticizing the beach parties at C-Flow Jbeil which caters for adults only!!

I don’t want to imagine what’s coming next in another 40 years time!

Shark hunted off Chekka coast today

chekka shark

Around a month ago, a fisherman caught an 800Kg shark off the Mina coast of Tripoli, and just today another one was hunted near Chekka.

I’m not sure if these sharks are dangerous or not, but I don’t think fisherman should go after them especially if they find them away of the spots where people swim.

Update:
This seems to be an old photo. I should have verified before publishing the post.

Air Arabia fixed Lebanon’s map!

Seems like someone at Air Arabia felt like Lebanon’s map is too wide from the top so he/she decided to fix it!

But seriously now, how can someone get a map wrong in 2014?!

Al Jadeed News Fail – Hitler cheered in his grave for Germany’s win!

This is quite weird and awkward! Zeinab Abdel Sater and Jad Ghosn from Al Jadeed TV concluded their report about the world cup final game by stating that Hitler cheered in his grave for Germany’s win! (At the 1m50s mark)

They definitely need to have their reports reviewed before airing next time!

Video of the Mannschaft fans going crazy in Hamra

This is insane! Check how the fans of Germany celebrated in Hamra following the win over Argentina in the world cup final last night!

On a side note, I’m a fan of Germany too and have been waiting for this moment for 24 years now! :D

Custom fees to be imposed on orders from AliExpress?

aliexpress-logo

I’m not a big fan of AliExpress as I have tried it once and wasn’t very satisfied with the stuff I received, however I know a lot of people who are literally addicted to it and keep ordering cheap stuff from it!

The reason why these people love AliExpress is because they pay very low shipping fees and absolutely no custom dues when their packages arrive to Lebanon since they’re labeled as gifts, which sounds like a steal if the stuff you’re ordering are of really good value.

However, I’ve been hearing from several sources lately that the Lebanese Customs will soon be forcing high fees on all packages received from AliExpress due to the large amount of orders being placed and affecting local sellers here. But I couldn’t make sure if this is really going to happen or not, so it would be good if someone from LibanPost or the Lebanese customs can confirm or deny it.

Meet Kiki C – A supposedly Lebanese rapper

Kiki C labels herself on Facebook as a Lebanese rapper but she seems more like an exotic model to me!

So far, we know almost nothing about her except that she has has released one song called “The Mediterranean” and claims to have been on tour with Snoop Dogg.

I guess she will soon make it to Lebanese TV shows the same way Myriam Klink and Lara Kay did, and we will eventually learn what is she up to!
