What Will Happen When Lebanon Becomes an Oil Rich Country

Posted By :

I’ve noticed recently an increased interest on oil and gas activities in Lebanon but I can’t figure out why. Executive Magazine has released a couple of articles lately, the Lebanese Petroleum Administration published an assessment report and the Lebanese Gas & Oil Facebook page has been pretty active lately.

I don’t think we will be extracting or selling oil anytime soon, but here’s a glimpse of what’s gonna happen according to Karl when Lebanon becomes an oil rich country:

- The country will become rich, very rich. Given Lebanon’s traditional commitment to equalitarianism, the process will be run efficiently and the proceeds will be distributed equally among the Lebanese.

– The Lebanese, who are generally known for their simple and non-materialistic lifestyle, will be tempted to abandon their traditional asceticism but they will do that with typical classiness and good taste.

– Cooperation is a cornerstone of Lebanese society, and there are hardly any disagreements to be expected over the distribution and use of the oil wealth. The country’s democracy is also reinforced by informal network of inter-sect cooperation, which will ensure everything goes smoothly.

Those are the major headlines, which are quite reassuring. The model also predicted specific results listed below:

– Parking valets will have their own valet parking service, which means that each restaurant/bar/nightclub will have a double valet parking system in front.

– Several very exclusive mega night clubs will open in Beirut and other cities, each accommodating no more than 25000 people.

– The Lebanese will stop trying to produce The Largest Hummus Plate In The World. Instead, they will start making The Largest Caviar Plate In The World. And then celebrate the record by smoking The Largest Cigar In The World.

I think she deserves the win as she was the most beautiful among all contestants. However, she doesn’t look like Georgina Rizk like some people are suggesting online. Sally will represent Lebanon at the Miss World 2014 contest in London on December 14th and at Miss Universe contest in Doral on January 25th.

Before Sally was announced a winner, Miss Lebanon 2013 Karen Ghrawi slipped and fell on stage but she wasn’t hurt in the process.

Here’s what the new Miss Lebanon had to say about her projects and the importance of social media after she won, which is pretty much the same cliché we hear every year. Speaking of social media, LBCI should consider adding the contestants’ social media accounts somewhere because they are always impossible to find.

The Washington Post’s Failed Nine Attempts To Explain The Crazy Complexity of The Middle East

I don’t really blame them. I doubt that anyone is understanding what’s happening around us. It feels like everyone’s gone mad. Maybe the only way out is to give everyone in the Middle East their own country based on the 317,000,000-state solution proposed by [The Onion].

It’s a fun read nevertheless. Check it out [Here].
