Too Salty

In yesterday's lecture I was talking about the dead sea products when -to my surprise- the LECTURER didn't really know what Im talking about ..

Not only that.. but as I was explaining to her that it's the lowest spot.. blah blah.. and that the water is too salty so nothing lives there.. no fishes.. etc (things which I 've thought she already knows)!

She said.. but WHY! How come!!!? Fishes always like salty water!

I felt sorry to open the subject from the first place.. HOPELESS case.. really!!!

    When I went to college in Canada, people would have me get them dead sea soap whenever I went home for the summer.

    Don't eb hard on your teacher, its a tough job, and they're all underpaid.

    You are KIDDING me. She didn't know that fish can only tolerate narrow ranges of salinity, temperature, and oxygen? Sheesh. And SHE'S supposed to be the teacher? Oohhhh boy.

    You should mention how good the dead sea products are for your skin and you will get her to do the all the research needed ; p

    wala ishiii...this is so sad!!
    I bet that once she starts searching about it she'll realize how ignorant she was:s
    hehe, i can imagine how it shocked you that yr lecturer didn't know abt it!
    Here, in the malls, a lot of stands exist selling the dead sea products!

    nido.. REALLY?!!! we don't have anything like this here.. although people CARE a lot about the skin etc.. imagine nido the other day I was shopping for a sun block when I realized that YOU CAN'T FIND SUN OILS!! they don't sell them.. the sun is too strong!!!!

    Life ... Yeah I was thinking about that too! it's like we know everything about them and they can't even guess where Jordan is .. in Asia or Africa!! This is one of the questions I keep getting!!

    afaf ... It's funny this is how I see it.

    I think that this proves the saying, "Those who can't do, TEACH." Sigh.
