Well, one trait that I found out turns to be quite, what should I say, amusing. It's the last one:
- We Egyptians are known for our submissive resilience (here is the source. It is actually funny)
Resilience: The property of a material that enables it to resume its original shape or position after being bent, stretched, or compressed.Umm...is it just me or does this really sounds like Egyptians.
That means that Submissive resilience is: The ability to recover from submission without enduring any harm. This leads to individuals who don't mind submission. In other words, the ability to submit an infinite number of times. An admirable trait :).
Our whole modern discourse is sometimes criticized for the "sound bite"-culture (taking a sound bite out of its context and drawing conclusions depending on that; which is exactly what I did) But coming to think about it, this is not actually a very bad thing. What was once only a sentence in an article, had morphed, through abstraction, into a topic of discussion, which may end up helping us understand ourselves a little better. This, or me winning a Nobel prize, I still don't know.
Anyways, following this line of thinking, I think that we should wear those t-shirts during the ACN matches: "We lose with resolution!"
