    I realize this is meant to be humorous, but I still find this list so stupid.

    That's not being Lebanese, that's being a middle/upper class Christian Lebanese living in Achrafieh/Metn/Keserwen/Baabda.

    I mean it's just a TINY portion of the Lebanse society.

    i understand the upper class part but what has religion got to do with it?if you go to church then you buy mobile phones every month or only drive hummers and bmws, and get plastic surgery? i fail to see the link between thm.

    This is a thread to see our sad truth to the whole world! And if you are proud to be like this, believe me abroad you are ashamed to say all this when you open your horizon a little bit...

    I see this thread as sectarian because he keeps talking about church, Cross, christian names.... Who told you that muslims doesn't like khalij???
    Alas, it is not the Lebanese who are thinking they are the world, it is some Lebanese Christians who do so!

    And, finally, the situation of tefchikh existing in Lebanon is like other countries... I read few times ago a study done by ' sociologues' and they were comparing the Lebanese society to other after war society and the phenomenon is the same!

    You shouldn't be SOOOOOOOOOo mad!! It was just for fun!! You just have to go to number 27 or 33 to realize that!! I say also that you may add any point!! So go on instead of complaining!! Add about christians, muslims, old, young, whatever............ It's just for having some fun!! All the points don't match with me also!! But I need to have fun!!
    I don't care if all of the worl saw this thread because if they judge without reading everything, it's their prob!! I want us to enjoy it! Why not?? If anybody wants to "criticize" us it's his problem!! We are, as you said, an after war people + bad situations in everything !! Nous pouvons nous défouler quelque part!!
    Et je suis convaincue d'une chose: Nous pouvons vivre dans le désordre que nous voulons tant nos n'avons pas abouti à tous nos droits! Ce thread ne change pas mon avis!! Je peux rire des OVERS des Libanais sans les condamner!! J'aime ces OVERS et je ne veux pas les changer!!

    Merci!

    Is this maybe the consequence of the war as well? The constant need for fun? Of course its good to have fun, though you brought the image into my mind when Lebanese were partying during the war.
    It would worth to discuss this phenomena, is this because they want to run from the traumas caused by wars, by ignoring it?
