You know you are surrounded with egyptian guys when..

.. you go to LA and end up spending your Friday night in an arabic cafe with 12 guys and 1 girl, smoking Shisha and watching 4 guys play estimataion (a card game) for 3 houres. Never in my life did I want to shoot myself like I did yesterday. Bastards!

Believe me, 12 to 1 is way better than 12 to none, although the estimation part is really so bee2a and early ninties.

sounds like something Egyptians would do. Sandy, do you ever visit museums or historic places, ever took some friends to see an art gallery for a change?
Guys, please for the love of God try to break this banal mould thats infecting everyone, that damn waterpipe sheesha shit, its a virus!!

Museum? Don't listen to Jokerman, SM! You're 24 years old in Southern California! Grab a few carloads of friends and head down to Laguna Beach :D

Or, head of to the mountains and do some skiing, even!

Hey, SM, some more ideas... Universal City Walk, lots of fun. They even have a HUGE movie theatre there, lots of restaurants, Hard Rock Cafe, etc, and Universal Studios amusement park is right next door.

Or, go the clubs in hollywood... or go pick up some Iranian chicks in Glendale :P

Old Pasadena is a very cool place to hang out too. Hell, I could name 1000 things more fun than hanging out in a museum. LA is not even known for it's museums anyway... why would a guy from Egypt go to a museum in LA? Well, if you do go to a museum here, I recommend the Getty.

Anyway, have fun man! Welcome to LA :)

Museums, historic sites and art galleries? This really makes sheesha with 12 to 1 ratio and the four estimation losers sound like kick ass fun.

Yeah, SM, go to Universal Studios & then walk up to chicks and say, "Want to ride roller coaster with me, fine American woman?" And if they're wearing a Garfield t-shirt throw in, "I see you're a CAT lover, oh my god," for a bonus. ;)

I was noticing in my town we have two Shisha places, and one is named "Sheesha Nights" & I was thinking, ha, that's cuz nobody knows how to pronounce Shisha. :P

A lot of Egyptians I know go to museums and art Gallery. Why do you think they don't Jokerman?

Don't generalize you and Sam please.

Why would you go to LA and do the same thing you could do at home?

This is exactly why you egyptians are culture ignorant, you know nothing about arts or other people yet you expect people to know everything about you otherwise they are ignorant in your eyes.
Nancy
I dont care how many egyptians you saw doing it, they are a rarity..egyptians living abroad mainly talk about & visit Shopping centres, markets, house prices & cars & i dont think that they dont, I KNOW they dont...& yes i can generalise in this point, generalise means the majority not 100% absolute.

Jokerman,

You are very rude and have no class to talk about others this way. It only shows that YOU and only YOU have no cultrue and ignorant not others.

There are 8 million arabs in the US and you claim you know them all and can generalize?. There are many and I mean many arab artists in the US. You need to get off your horses and look at your own ignorance instead or writing nonsense like this.

Mohamed and others were right to call you a bully because you are a very simple minded and a racisit child.

Common look at your garbage you post at the Mozza site and the dirt that comes out of your mouth. It only shows your drty culture.

Nancy

Nancy,

You forgot to say that a lot of arabs in and out the US/australia/Europe know much more than what the Americans, Australians, European knows.

They are well read and well traveled unlike so many ignorant people around the world.

Jokerman is a loser for sure.

Nancy, thanks for the defence, but if Jokerman just went through the same exact amount of torture I have to go through every time my dad visits, the asian art museum, the de young museum, the botanical garden, the aviation museum, the computer history museum, the tech museum, the egyptian museum (yes, there's a huge one here), he'd appreciate my annual overdose of art and back and leg and knee pain that I get.
Reading the da Vinci code is good enough for me.

The dirt you mentioned in that other site was replying to an idiot who first used filthier language at me for no apparent reason.
Now i answered you very politely & indicated a point without using the language you are, i wont even bother to answer your sort as you obviously have serious issues & you are turning the subject completely now,you are classless & a patronising git.

To all you pretentious hip people who bloody know it all
Can someone objectively indicate without being too amusing & abusive show how can a water pipe outing be far better than a cultural one?
I refered to many egyptians i know who live abroad & in egypt who never go to any art gallery or museum or cultural events whatsoever, & i said the majority...unlike the likes of that nancy & her bf moroccan hisham, any quasi interesting or semi intellectual reasoning that i can logicaly accept?
to those who want a fight, bugger off will you, i am not in the damn mood, i want serious & intelligent people not humourous & absuive nonsense.

Your british nonsense doesn't amsue us either so, butt off yourself and stop making false statements on behalf of Egyptians and Arabs.

Tell us about what you think rather than making dragatory comments on Egyptians and Arabs.

Capito dingo!

Hicham

Jokerman,

Now Hicham is my Boyfriend simply because we both agree on your rude comments?! how childish!!!

People like me don't engage on foul language even if it is directed at me. I guess you are better than all of us by your attacks on everyone on this blog and other blogs, to name a few Twosret, Jana, Mohamed, Hicham and myself.

Serious & intelligent people won't even bother to exchange thoughts by someone who is so narrow minded and have nothing to do but to put down Egyptians and Arabs.

Mohamed,

He is against Arabs period! and can't see a positive comment posted without making sure he taunt the image of Arabs.

Arabs have great history and a lot of achievements and when put in the right place they excel and succeed and make a good name for themselves.

He is riding on the wave that Arabs are the new kid on the block to abuse them. I bet you he wears a KKK long white cone on his head and shout in the streets "death to blacks"

Pansy Nancy
I really dont give an iota of rats droppings as everything you said is simply in your mind.
You hassled me before & you take my views personally, i never start calling people names & you did, simply because you dont like what i say when you know its damn true.
Criticising egyptians doesnt include Arabs by the way,& for your info, try to dig deep into your egyptian culture, try to know more & see how egyptians were then & what they are today & tell me if you think egyptians have improved.
last generation i respect in egypt are over 70, the remanants of the liberal age, who were cultured unlike you & your sort, or that mohamed who so increduosly boasts about a fiction book when he wont bother reading EGYPTIAN books of far greater calibre that are dead & needs urgent revival. Pathetic!
