@berdan131 Good question. As a great man has said: “But you have heard of me”.

Another great man has said that “A celebrity is any well-known TV or movie star who looks like he spends more than two hours working on his hair.” Do you consider these people worthy to host their own AMA event? I don't.

Hi Skapsis

What does it feel like being Greek?
I've heard they don't shave or shower and that they have very oily hair.

Interesting question your majesty @Diety Emperor Cacao, God Ruler of the Universe.

First of all, being Greek is like living in Balkans without being a Slav or Albanian + you use Euro as your currency.

Secondly, I never shave. I have a beard. But as far as the shower is concerned it's just a stereotype. There is a joke here in Greece saying that leftists never shower, so it implies that the rest of the people do shower. Right?

I just spent the day skimming through 2016-2021 of the off topic forum, it was an adventure. Shout out to lavror/knyte who definitely takes the prize for the greatest volume of text posted, and you can find him posting consistently over these years. Many of these posts were tl;dr. He should get a gold metal. I don't feel like creating a separate thread for this topic however so I figure just take this one over since all four of the people who care about OP have already responded, including berdan131 and grover - two class clowns, the post-modern and the modern, respectively.

I salute you Raniboots,

surfing through old forums always makes me nostalgic :)



@skapis

You're right
Another question. Why did you decide to make ama. Do you have some message that you'd like to share with us?

@Darth Grover thank you for the innovative joke. I have never heard of it in the past.

@RainB00ts knyte is a special person. It's so sad that some people do not appreciate him.

@ berdan131 I decided to make an ama session so I can share my knowledge with you. But teachers should never give knowledge like this. Students should work hard to extract the teacher's knowledge. Otherwise, it's meaningless.

@ Diety Emperor Cacao, God Ruler of the Universe Crete for sure. After a century with cars they still have to learn how to drive properly. I hate people from Kavala too.

@goralgn The answer is simple. Nationality law of Greece is based on the principle of jus sanguinis. Jus sanguinis is a principle of nationality law by which citizenship is determined or acquired by the nationality or ethnicity of one or both parents. Children at birth may be citizens of a particular state if either or both of their parents have citizenship of that state. It may also apply to national identities of ethnic, cultural, or other origins. Both of my parents are Greek citizens.

However, if you are talking about ethnicity, things are a bit different. My ancestors were Greek-speaking orthodox Christians of the Ottoman Empire. So they belonged to the Greek Orthodox millet. The millets ('nation' in Turkish) were a form of organization and a legal status bestowed by the Ottoman Sultan on the believers of monotheistic religions.

Skapis9999 says, "Ask me anything"

Alright.

It is time to feast. What is your all time favorite food(s) & desert? Full course extravaganza, it's party time.

What is your favorite holiday in which feasting is tradition?

@HangFire all time favorite food(s) & desert

interesting question... hmmm despite the fact that I love eating in nice restaurants I consider the standard menu format dumb. I like eating something tiny at the beginning to warm up my stomach but then I want the main dish with a salad. Obviously a great desert at the end.

So, my optimal feast would be pork ribs with french fries, tzatziki and a greek salad. Does it sound stereotypical? Yes. Is it stereotypical though? No. First of all, french fries should not be thin but they should have some "flesh". Not chips. Neither crispy. Tzatziki is there to be used as a sauce for fries mostly. I can do the same with a tarama salad (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taramasalata). Greek salad is a bit different from the common commercial one. It has the obvious ingredients, tomatoes and cucumbers from my grandmother's garden, olives, feta cheese, olive oil. I like adding green pepper, kapari (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caper) and a secret ingredient (I won't tell you.. it wouldn't be a secret if I would, right? Pork ribs will be chosen by my butcher obviously. He knows that I pay. And when you pay, you will have the best products.

As far as the desert is concerned, I am in a dilemma. Chocolate salami(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chocolate_salami) is one of my favourites. Cheesecake is another one.

So about the feasting holiday. As I said in a previous question, I live in Greece where Greek Orthodox Traditions affect our lives even if we are not believers. My favourite feasting holiday is Easter. The tradition says that you visit "your Village" (the village where your grandparents come from), meet relatives and eat. The main ingredient is the lamb. In any form of it. Souvla is men's responsibility. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Souvla). They rotate the lamb over a fire for the entire morning. At the same time, it's Kokoretsi (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kokoretsi). Lamb or goat intestines wrapped around seasoned offal, including sweetbreads, hearts, lungs, or kidneys, and typically grilled. Delicious. Then there is the women's responsibility too. They have to clean all the intestines and prepare the Kokoretsi. All leftovers, mostly kidneys, sweetbreads and other intestines are used to cook the Magiritsa(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magiritsa). My grandpa comes from Eastern Thrace and they have another version. It's like a patty but with the Magiritsa ingredients. It's called Tziegerosarma (no English wiki. Take this: https://tinyurl.com/m7rxs5c from google images. This is my favourite.

Obviously, it has a lettuce salad with tomatoes, boiled eggs (8+ minutes) which are followed by egg tapping (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egg_tapping). Eggs are painted red some days earlier.

I hope that I answered your questions. :-)

@Skapis,

I want your opinion on a serious matter:
Do you think Tchaikovsky was careless in his E minor symphony to put a fermata after a domimant chord in the andante maestoso movement on bar 472?
What do you think is the best solution to the problem?
