Sick and tired of Lebanon – But can’t get a visa? This could be the solution for you!
If it’s because of the slow internet, the lack of possibilities, the Syrian spillover or the never ending increasing danger of sectarian violence that makes you want to leave Lebanon, this alternative could be YOUR chance to get out of Lebanon and get a “fresh” start, somewhere completely new and different.
Actually this alternative is also an alternative for the people who want, not to just leave Lebanon, but also the whole shithole called Earth. And you’d get to be on TV, perhaps even get Famous.
Not sure if you have guessed it already, but you can go to Mars – the planet! All you have to do is to go into this website, and upload a video of yourself explaining why YOU should be the one to represent humanity in outer space colonization project.
So far only 3 dedicated Lebanese “wannabe astronauts” have applied so you still have a fair chance. Just make sure you are better qualified or funnier (yes your sense of humor is important if you want to go to Mars) than these guys and you have the odds on your side!
Here are the Lebanese Nominees:

My favorite so far is Edward, not only because he is a fellow actor with his own webpage where he claims to have given Leonardo DeCaprio directions in a real movie – but also because he has experience with “Cyber counterintelligence”, which sounds really really awesome. Anyways, Let us know who your favorite is!
If you are happy about life on Earth as it is, at least you can find your favorite Lebanese future Martian… And let us know which one of the three Lebanese adventurers you think should get to go and colonize Mars!
The biggest problem seems to be that you have to use the Internet (bummer) to upload your video, and as a videoblogger with more videos uploaded from Lebanon than any other, I know that could be a painful dilemma to overcome!
But, no one said it was going to be easy to go to Mars. And there are no plans of returning back to Earth. Just thought you should know…
Here is a video of 2Famous.TVs very own astronaut, Jørgen Evil Ekvoll, who simulated a one week space trip by isolating himself in a room covered with silver foil.
About the Mars One project:
Mars One is “A not-for-profit foundation that will establish a permanent human settlement on Mars” with an accompanying reality tv-show in 2025. The first journey which will take seven months is set for 2024 and comprises a crew of four people. Once set up more missions with more colonizers will join.
Since 2011 when the project began it has acquired a mere $500,000 in donations and profit from merchandising but officially no financial records have been released.
Naturally, it’s going to take incredibly strong, unique, and pretty zany people to prepare for and jet off to another planet on a one-way flight in the hopes of colonizing it. So, who are these people? They are over 2,782 people from all over the world who are not astronauts, just volunteers to embark on this insane mission.
The website posts the application videos publicly — and it goes wtihout saying there is some really weird stuff going on here.

Cleverly enough Kiki C, the rapper who sounds like Ke$ha but still looks like an Arab porn popstar, avoids mentioning who this is ‘about to be a great year’ ... [more]
An ivestegatory video report about who is the Original P of Norwegian Music!
Since moving back to Norway after 4 years in Lebanon, a lot has happened on the music front. Before I had only heard about one P in Norwegian music and that was ONKLP. Nowadays we also have Admiral P and Store P (there is actually a guy called Tande P too but he has gone missing), so it is bit complicated to find out who is the Original P. We made a mini documentary to find out!

Jewish British MP Sir Gerald Kaufman discussing the situation in Israel!
“Most of my parents’ families – because my parents came here as refugees – most of my parents families were murdered in the Holocaust. When the Germans came to the town from which my mother came in Poland, Stachov, they lined up all the Jews to march to the railway station to be put in cattle-wagons. But for those who were not well enough to march, they killed them on t... [more]
