Fouad Makhzoumi in a live twitter session this Saturday

I got some criticism earlier when I wrote about “Khlosna ba2a” campaign by the National Dialogue Party, since you know, blogs like +961 and politics don’ti mixi!

That’s why I’m taking the opportunity to let you know I have just learned that Fouad Makhzoumi, the founder of that party, will be holding a live twitter session this Saturday at 6PM through his account @fmakhzoumi, so that those who are interested (and maybe criticizers) can get to know him more and ask him about his agenda, as I believe moderate figures like him deserve an opportunity to get more exposure.

For more about what Makhzoumi does, you can also check his foundation’s website.

Halal nail polish now available in Lebanon

This was spotted at Inglot in Hamra main street. I wonder what other products may go halal next!

Halal nail polish

Turned out this Inglot nail polish, unlike other brands, allows water to permeate to the nail itself to make Woudou’ valid, since one of Woudou’ requirements is for water to reach certain body parts including nails.


African Rhinoceros attacks minister Sehnaoui

Nicolas Sehnaoui

Minister Nicolas Sehnaoui was lucky enough to escape a Rhinoceros attack while he was on a hunting trip in Africa along with minister Marwan Kheireddine.

Caretaker State Minister Marwan Kheireddine saved caretaker Telecommunications Minister Nicolas Sehnaoui from a rhinoceros attack while they were in Africa, reported An Nahar daily Friday.

It said that as the ministers were on a hunting trip in Africa, Sehnaoui decided to rest by the rhinoceros, which he mistook for a rock.

The animal soon turned its attention to Sehnaoui and attempted to attack him.

The minister began to run away from the rhinoceros, while Kheireddine and their companions scared off the animal with their sticks. Source

I wonder what other cool hobbies do our ministers have!

New virus targeting Lebanese internet users

Apparently there’s some new virus targeting Lebanese porn surfers that displays a fake warning once you visit some x-rated website, claiming you have violated the law and requires that you pay a fine of 200,000 L.L to the ministry of interior via cashU or face 8 months to 1 year in prison.

So if you ever get that fake message, just keep calm and carry on browsing! (But consider maybe updating your antivirus once you’re done).

On a side note, the reporter needs to take a chill pill towards porn websites.
