Five Reasons Lebanon Should Be Proud of Its Curves

As Kim Kardashian can surely attest, there’s something about curvy things that just fits perfectly into every equation. Think of it this way: straight faces are scary, but curve them lips, and you instantly become more amicable. Curve them arms, and let someone fall into your embrace.

Heck, even a curved, cozy couch calls out to you; it’s been scientifically proven that curved spaces are more relaxing and approachable than their angular counterparts. And here’s a bonus fact for the ladies: the same reward center in the brain that activates when someone is on drugs, also activates whenever men look at curvy women. So yes, men are basically getting high off your curves.

Still not convinced that curvy wins? Take a look.

Qatayef is the most curvaceous of desserts and the ultimate staple of Ramadan. Filled with melted akkawi cheese, dripping in sugar, and fried to a golden perfection, qatayef is perhaps one of the best sweets to ever hit the (curved) face of the earth.

2. The Balaa Sinkhole

This is one of the best places to hike in the Tannourine area. After all the huffing and puffing, gnawing mosquitoes and tangled hair, where better to relax and contemplate than in front of the Balaa sinkhole? Nature’s naturally beautiful curved attraction.

3. The Ski Slopes

Lebanon is definitely proud of these curves. When it snows next year (finger crossed), this is where you should be heading. Miles and miles of mountainous curves for avid skiers and nature lovers alike.

Even our national icon knows better than to keep his handwriting stiff and straight.

5. The Samsung Curved UHD TV

Now that we can all agree that curves are always better, here’s a way to really rock some roundness into your life: the world’s first curved TV. Samsung is known for surprising us with innovative, creative ideas, but this latest product is truly out of this world. You can finally watch your favorite movie and feel like you’re actually a part of the action (Channing Tatum, I’m comin’ for ya!).

The curved touch of the television gives moving images a greater panoramic effect, and makes you feel more immersed in your viewing experience. Enjoying everything the curvy world has to offer is easy with the new Samsung Curved UHD TV. To learn more, visit The Samsung Website.
