No Saba7 didn’t get married again, this guy is from Argentina and apparently he married the woman because “he’s always liked mature ladies” (I think he likes the money that’s in purses of mature ladies more:P). He apparently fell in love with the woman when he moved in with her after his mother’s death.

PC and Parts is a Lebanese online PC store. On the web-site they claim to be the first Lebanese online store but I can’t verify that.
I am going to review the site first and then the customer service.
The website is organized and easy to browse, it is updated regularly with new products and price changes, the only problem with it is that it looks like a 1990s website on some pages.
One feature the website is missing is a search box, since it is organized you don’t spend too much time looking for the product you want but a search box will make life much easier for the visitors.
I bought 5 products from the site, you have the option to call or email them, I always emailed them. I never ordered in the first email but asked question about the products, they always answered my questions, sometimes even guiding me to a better product. When you finaly place your order you get an email asking you to confirm everything, they also ask you for your address. Aramex delivers the packages and takes the money, this is good, but the only problem is that the delivery time is between 9:30 AM and 2:30 PM so you can’t make plans for half a day because you don’t know when your order will arrive.
The products are good and the prices are usually better then the ones you can find at normal stores. The Items priced at over 20$ come with a one year warranty, but I once got a USB PCI card for 7$ that didn’t work correctly (worked OK during the first 10 days, after that whenever I plugged anything to it, it would work for 10 minutes then fail) so I recommend you only get the products that are covered by a warranty from them.
My final score will be a 4/5.
BBC News has a nice picture of a soldier in Nahr L Bared.
A Lebanese soldier stands near spent artillery shells at the Nahr al-Bared refugee camp in northern Lebanon – the scene of fierce fighting between the army and militants.
Tonight on Kalem L Neiss Marcel Ghanem read a Fax sent from the Chikhani Family inviting people to gather on Wednesday, the 3rd of october at 8 PM in front of Biel, to march with candles to the “Place de L’Etoile” in memory of Charles Chikhani. I’ll try to go and invite everyone to join the family of Charles on that day.
Before starting the show they showed a report about the victims of the explosion, during the report Charle’s Brother spoke about Lebanon, the Lebanese and the politicians, and I have to say I completely agree with him!

La marche de Charles Chikhani
C’est l’appel d’un peuple blessé
Refusant l’absence du fils
Refusant la souffrance de la mère
S’exprimant en silence
Tous de blanc vêtus
Une bougie à la main
Le mercredi 3 octobre a 20h
Du BIEL à la Place de l’Etoile
Participez à la Marche de Charles Chikhani
Ou éclairez vos fenêtres d’une bougie
The rally of Charles Chikhani
Is a wounded people’s call
Crying out in silence
Refusing the loss of a son
Refusing the suffering of a mother
Inviting us to light a candle
All dressed in white
On Wednesday October 3rd at 8 p.m.
From BIEL to Parliament Square
Come and join the walk of Charles Chikhani
Or light a candle at your window

1010 girls broke the world record for the biggest number of girls in Bikinis on an Australian beach! That’s nicer than the record for the biggest bowl of Tabouleh or Fattouch people do here!
I am seeing the new Mercedes C Class a lot lately on the Lebanese roads, The front of the car is very nice but the rear is ugly! The back lights look weird, the rear of the old model was much better!
A friend told me that the last time Wahab was on Manar TV he got 2 surprises. Here’s what apparently happened:
A woman first called and started telling him how good he was and that they liked him so much. After she finished telling him all the crap allowed on Manar she asked him if he knew Walid Joumblat, his answer was of course “yes” so she told him: “Eh Bedo yfarfeklak mnekhirak ba3ed chi nhar” (sorry this really can’t be translated).
After a while another man called, he used the same startegy but at the end here’s what he said:
Caller: I really Like to go hunting.
Presenter: Please get to your point.
Caller: But I stopped going hunting some times ago, guess why?
Caller: My dog died so would you please give me the one next to you?
At this point Wahab left the studio and the show was ended!
I searched google and YouTube for a video of this but found nothing. And since I am not really a regular Manar viewer I can’t personally confirm it happened so if you have a video or watched this please tell us if it’s true!
EDIT: Jad commented and said he watched the show and this never happened, I am going to ask the person who told me the story if he watched the show or if someone told him that it happened and I’ll keep you updated. but for now this is just a false rumor, sorry!
EDIT 2: My Friend confiremed this was true! Believe whoever you want! I can’t confirm it!
This story is now on Digg. This guy stole someone laptop and wanted to use it to upload pictures to his flickr account, the only thing he forgot to do is logout from the owner’s account! so he ended up uploading his pictures (face and tattoos) to the owner’s account!!!
here’s the genius
I was telling my friend a few days ago about the problem in Achrafieh that started after the Government decided to finally name an avenue after Bachir Gemayel, When we finished talking about the issue he told me a Joke about St Dimitri and Bachir Gemayel:
After dying Bachir went to heaven, while he was walking there he met St Maroun so he approached him, greeted him and asked him how he was doing. But St Maroun just ignored Bachir and kept walking! Bachir was surprised but continued, he met Jesus Christ so he greeted him and asked him why St Maroun didn’t reply but Jesus didn’t reply too!! Bachir was really surprised wondering why no one is answering him but a few moments later he heard a voice calling him he turned around and saw a man running towards him, the man hugged him, kissed him and asked Bachir if he had recognized him, Bachir didn’t. The person explained that he was St Dimitri and that he was from Achrafieh, he told Bachir how much he loved him and started talking to him. After some time Bachir asked St Dimitri why St Maroun and Jesus ignored him so St Dimitri replied: “The first is Syrian and the second is Palestinian, how do you expect them to talk to you!?”
