Points to focus on:

I'm Middle-Eastern, aka Different. I'm from a war-torn country. I follow a different debating style than most chalk-chewing Americans. Shoot.

It's delicious, but my mom is an awful cook. I usually prepare my own food or eat at my Aunt's house.

That's the picture of the Lebanese poet and philosopher Khalil Roukoz. From what I know of him, he's probably half-way through his morning's whiskey cup.

Do you even?

That question is odd.

1. Why can't people in the Middle East just get along?

2. What's your favourite kind of pizza?

3. What's wrong with eating chalk? It's basically just Tums.

4. Why do so many Middle Easterners write backward?

5. What brings you to DDO?

Most of my poems mimic Roukoz's style so I'm quite unoriginal in stylistics, but I'm relatively good at poetic imagery.

Are you a good comedian?

People who find me hilarious are usually only impressed with my cynicism, I don't know.

Whats your favourite joke?

Snow White saw Pinocchio walking through the woods so she ran up behind him, knocked him flat on his back, and then sat on his face crying, "Lie to me! Lie to me!"

What talents do you have?

Designing rosaries and worry-beads, sculpturing, poetry, debating and public speaking. I worked as a teacher for two years.

Can you solve a rubix cube?

I've designed a computer algorithm that can solve rubik's cubes in no time. I simply punch the color codes followed by their positions into the machine and watch my baby do all the heavy-lifting for me.

Are you a good babysitter?

Yeah, I guess.

If you were a super hero what powers would you have?

The power of designing other super-heroes and giving them the breath of life.

Do you have a cherished childhood teddybear?

No.

Do I annoy you? =/

No, those were good questions.

It's basically an extra-spicy hybrid between pepperoni and cheese.

3. What's wrong with eating chalk? It's basically just Tums.

It's just messy and her Highness doesn't do it.

For the same reason Brits drive in the opposite direction.

Considering the volatility of the region, do you consider Lebanon a safe or dangerous place to visit?

If you consider it a dangerous place to visit, what do you think can be done to make it safer?

What is it that you want to become (career-wise)?

What is your favorite television program?

Shoes, boots, or sandals?

Do you go swimming in the Mediterranean or do you prefer pools?

What is your favorite movie?

Tripoli has recently had several sectarian clashes between Sunnis and Alawites. The rest of Lebanon is peaceful but overcrowded with Syrian refugees.


If you consider it a dangerous place to visit, what do you think can be done to make it safer?

Hezbollah should submit their weapons to the Lebanese army, because they're mainly getting into external wars like puppet-mercenaries for other countries and worsening the situation. Not to mention that they're also accused of assassinating a number of 14 March figures and they're simply refusing to submit any convicts to the World Council.

What is it that you want to become (career-wise)?

I want to become a part-time computer scientist and philosophy teacher or academic. I already have a BS in Computer Science and I'm going for the MS, but I need enough money for a PHD in Philosophy.

What is your favorite television program?

"Newsnight" by Jerry Paxman.

Shoes, boots, or sandals?

Boots.

Do you go swimming in the Mediterranean or do you prefer pools?

I prefer swimming in the Mediterranean. It's mostly unclean but I go to the the clean shores up the North.

What is your favorite movie?

Hmm. It's hard to choose. Probably "Waking Life."

Holds his breath. *Dives* into the questions.

If you were the last person on the face of the earth what would be the first thing you would do?

Find a plank of wood and call it "Woody."


Would you rather have a nipple sized penis or penis sized nipples for the rest of your life?

Nipple-sized penis. I would easily hide my morning wood on the bus, which seem to take form as soon as the bus starts rocking back and forth.

Would you rather have an erection for the rest of your life or never be able to have an erection even using viagra?

Not have an erection. Sex is overrated.

If you could debate any user on any issue what would it be?

I'm really interested in debating Wittgestien's Beetle-in-the-box objection, but the only person who knows the topic is probably Stephen_Hawkins, and he properly agrees with me on the issue. I would ask him if he wasn't busy all the time.

Who do you look up to the most?

Prof. Arif Ahmed. (I'm assuming you mean in real-life, and not here).

if you had to marry one person on DDO who would it be?

Probably Rross. I like my women older than me, intelligent, funny and mature.

if your house was burning and you could only save one thing (excluding friends and family, they're already safe) what would it be?

My collection of rosaries and masbahas.

If you were stranded on an island what would be the one thing you could take with you?

My collection of rosaries and masbahas. Lol.

How many languages do you speak? What are they?

English, Arabic and some Hebrew.


Bunnies or cats?

Trick question. Bunnies are cats but in their own way.

How do you like your kibe?

What is the right side in the Syrian war? (And by that i mean, what side is almost not entirely wrong?)

Why so many Lebanese are politicians in Brazil? And why are they often the lousy ones?

In a scale from 1 to 10, how offensive is to call a Lebanese "Turk"?

Why does your country keep shelling Israel?

Why do they shell you back?

If you ran into 5 defenseless Israel soldiers, you had a rifle, and they were trying to blow up the Lebanon parliament, what would you do?

Alcohol.

Have you ever gotten into a fight? If so, how many and with who? Did you win or lose?

I've gotten in some physical fights, although my intentions were mostly to have a verbal fight and run away. Once I was sleeping over a friend of mine and we were walking with his sister on some weird street, and some dude threw his energy drink from like the 13th floor trying to hit us and ended up splashing some of my friend's clothes. We looked up and his friends started laughing loudly. My friend and his sister started cussing him and he started cussing back. I falsely assumed we were dealing with 5-6 younger kids because they had soft voices, so I decided to go up and confront them, while my friend and his sister didn't even pay attention to me. Once I reached the eleventh floor through the elevator, the door opened and I walked into a hallway full of muscular seniors who were partying and unaware of what was happening outside, so I simply laughed hysterically and told them I'm going to get more drinks "because we need to get this party on."

I don't like Keebi in any way.

The moderate factions of the Free Syrian Army, who have made it clear that they want a unified and democratic state.

Why so many Lebanese are politicians in Brazil? And why are they often the lousy ones?

Many Lebanese went to Brazil and never came back. And I guess because Lebanese generally make lousy politicians.

A Lebanese Armenian, probably 10.
A typical Lebanese, 7.

Not my country, simply Hezbollah, a militia in my country which is controlled by other countries. The Lebanese Army has never shelled Israel in the last 10 years, and I don't think they even have the necessary equipment to do so.

Why do they shell you back?

Israel doesn't shell Lebanon as a whole. They simply focus on the Shiah towns in South Lebanon that are used to launch missiles towards Israel.

If you ran into 5 defenseless Israel soldiers, you had a rifle, and they were trying to blow up the Lebanon parliament, what would you do?

I will give them my rifle and wish them good luck. I'm not a big fan of the Lebanese parliament or the Israeli army, but I'll choose the less of the two evils. I'm assuming here that the Lebanese parliament is full with politicians.
