Lebanon's Got Talent

This is not only athleticism but an artistic expression of what
 one must do to get into a parking spot in Beirut.

Public Service Announcement II

Exercise caution around any exposed electrical wires, however,
your risk of electrical shock is greatly decreased due to the continuous power interruptions.
Even at peak the current is weak so you would only get a bit of a buzz anyway and well worth the risk if you need to "borrow" some electricity from your neighbor.

Any tape works well to make a connection, electrical tape, scotch tape, masking tape, police tape.
Really a twist tie is fine too.

Put Your Best Face Forward

"I can't move my face. How do I look?"
    "I can't feel my face. How are the lips? Are they even?"

Mirror, Mirror On The Wall...

What's the best wine of them all?
The one with the Gold Cedar that makes you feel patriotic.
What's this question?

Reality Check

If your choices are chilling at the mall or drinking, you are most likely under 25 years old.
You are most likely male and you are most likely living at home as you earn only enough to pay your cell phone and go chill at the mall for fun with your buddies. The little blanket isn't going to give you any more options. Your mom won't appreciate you "heating things up" under your little blanket.

The Glass Half Empty or Half Full?

Good reasons to drink on the slopes.
You'll feel it more at higher altitudes and you'll feel it less if you injure yourself.
You'll feel more courageous but you'll be less coordinated.
Drink responsibly, don't drink and slide.

Closer and Closer

City Mall means traffic congestion and construction...
and if you've made it this far you probably agree with this sign.

Are You Calling Me Fat?

Blonde or Brunette? Why is the "blonde" in a small curvy shaped glass while the "brunette" is in the big round glass? Why does the "blonde" appear smaller as the "brunette" appears much larger? Just what do you mean by that Almaza?

Just Putter Around

Learn to drive the golf cart and maybe you'll be a caddy someday.
There are 4 golf courses in the Middle East, Lebanon has one.
Good luck with that.

( He's In ) Shock and Awe

Wonder Woman is a member of an all-female tribe of Amazons (based on the Amazons of Greek mythology) who was created as a "distinctly feminist role model whose mission was to bring the Amazon ideals of love, peace, and sexual equality to 'a world torn by the hatred of men. Her powers include super strength, super speed, stamina, and flight. She is highly proficient in hand-to-hand combat and in the art of tactical warfare. She also possesses an animal-like cunning and a natural rapport with animals, which has in the past been presented as an actual ability to communicate with the animal kingdom. She uses her Lasso of Truth (which forces those bound by it to tell the truth), a pair of indestructible bracelets, and an invisible plane, which was later replaced with an ability to fly unaided.

Public Service Announcement

Always be alert! Potholes are common during the rainy season and the not rainy season.
Be aware! Drivers often drive into oncoming traffic but they may alert you by flashing their headlights or they may not. Oncoming traffic is usually detected by the sight of a front bumper coming in your direction, this is true in most cases, however, be advised that cars may actually be coming in your direction while facing forward. This is known as a reverse motion (reverse lights may be non-functioning).

Discarded tires are put to good use! Yard furniture and potted plants may also be used in the absence of tires. Tires are multi-purpose in the event of a demonstration, always re-use and recycle. Tire donations are always welcomed.

This arrow does not indicate where traffic should go, it is pointing to the heart of the pothole. Avoid this area.
Please drive safely.
This has been a Public Service Announcement by Beirut Drive-by Shooting.
