5. A photocopy machine does not print documents; just like a printer doesn't copy papers
6. A cube is not a square, a sphere is not a circle and so on
7. It’s Barça (pronounced Barsa), not barsha! Just say Barshalona as it is called in Arabic, and by the way in Castilian Spanish it is pronounced Barthelona, like someone with a lisp would read an s
8. While we’re on the subject, it is AC Milan not EC Milan, can you say A?
9. Not all 4x4 cars are a Jeep! And they’re certainly not a “Jaib”

13. I will say this for the two hundred millionth time and I'm not even a doctor: an antibiotic won’t cure a virus, a flu is caused by a virus and you can take as many courses of antibiotics as you like, it’s not going away unless it decides to. Also, when you feel like you’re coming down with something, those black and red capsules are most likely not the answer to your problem!!! And don't say "eza ma nefe3 ma bedorr" because it does
14. If it ain’t a question, don’t use a question mark!!!
15. To call someone and hang up before they answer (ya3ni te3mallo missed call) you need to have as much credit in your account balance as you need to actually make a call!

16. If you’re using MS Office Word and you need to put what you wrote in two columns, writing the first sentence and then typing space space space space space space space space space space space space space space space space space space space space space space and then the next sentence is not the way to do it

18. No I can’t edit the writing in a table if it’s been saved as an image
19. Shaving hair will not make you hairy if you’re not already! New hair follicles will not be created just because you used a razor to cut the hairs that are already there, similarly, by pulling out a grey hair you will not get 5 grey hairs in the same place! If this were true, people with very thin hair should pull it all out, then they’ll have hair that is 5 times thicker!
20. Eating lots of sugar will not give you diabetes! No it won’t. No it won’t.
