    Wink Honestly - only honestly - what do you know about Egypt?

    I've quoted this thread from a friend How much do you know about India
    I put this thread and I bet I'll find 90% incorrect info. (at least )
    ----
    Additional Quiz:
    1-Have u ever know that Egyptians are Arabs?
    2-Do you know it's a country in the Middle East?
    3-Heard about Dr. Zewail?
    Those 3 questions are so easy, but lots of mistakes I found while chatting last years.

    - Aliens came to visit you guys back in the day to help with the pyramids.

    - A lot of the people are blonde/green-eyed.

    I don't know much about Egypt other than the pyramids and stuff you see on TV. As far as culture and the people are concerned, I haven't a slightest clue

    Pyramids in the past, we don't live inside them

    Well actually as an Israeli I know a lot about Egypt.. Of course I know all of the above, but there's much more to that.

    But, let's not start bickering ;-) We're in peace right now, I hope to visit Sinai next year and have some good time.. Cya around :-P

    I have not heard of Dr. Zewail. I do know that in Egypt, flocks of goats or sheep can be found in the middle of city. On two different occasions, friends of mine have returned from Egypt with many great photos. It looks very interesting over there - I would LOVE to visit Egypt.

    I guess that's all info. here
    personally, I think we should make more effort locally to spread our current conditions besides history ..

    I don't know much about Egypt either, it's hot there, a bunch of camels, a couple of deserts, a lot of sunshine and loads of pyramids!

    Yes............. aliens visited ancient eqypt
    They had cool voices, technology that they stole from the ancients, cool glowing eyes and were little snake like parasites that embeded themselves into human hosts, they made themselves known as gods (which with their tech that'd be easy to make primitive people believe).

    They stole egyptians and colognized other worlds, and made us their slaves.

    Earth's egyptians revolted and Ra fled, Egypt was then left alone for 1000's of years until dumb Americans dug up the stargate and made enemies with these same aliens.

    Erm least that makes a better story then history does.

    Ancient Egypt:
    They built Pyramids, died while building pyramids, finished building pyramids and built more..................Sounds boring.

    Egypt today:

    Food smells awesome, but tastes horrid (least to my taste buds). It's hot, sandy and smells really bad in town (least in port towns). Nice place to read about, not to visit though IMO.

    1-Have u ever know that Egyptians are Arabs?
    2-Do you know it's a country in the Middle East?
    3-Heard about Dr. Zewail?
    1. Egyptian=Arab, or vice-versa
    2. It's borders have changed many times throughout history, at one time it extended into Africa, iirc (which I probably don't)
    3. Zewail? that's not an Egyptian sounding name, sounds more Hungarian to me.

    well, no movie could present a good or real picture of Egypt

    I don't know much about Egypt either, it's hot there, a bunch of camels, a couple of deserts, a lot of sunshine and loads of pyramids!
    You have to see modern gallery

    Strypes
    You can visit many places with different weather, i.e Sharm el-Sheikh is suitable for summer and Luxor is for winter (hafta choose suitable times )

    Zewail? that's not an Egyptian sounding name, sounds more Hungarian to me.
    His name is Ahmed Zewail (Arabic name )

    I hope I didn't forget something ... !

    Does anyone know the history of why Egypt is Middle East? Anyone just looking at a map might be forgiven for assuming it was part of Africa. What about Libya?
