|Apr-01-15|| ||technical draw: Passover:
The most salient Passover practice is a set of intense changes to the usual dietary cycle, including the absence of hametz, or foods with leaven. The ecstatic cycle of psalms called Hallel is recited both at night and day (during the Seder and morning prayers). Additionally, Passover commences a 49-day period called the Omer, which recalls the count between offerings brought to the Temple in Jerusalem. This count culminates in the holiday of Shavuot, the anniversary of the reception of the Torah.

hehe I loved the "orange" story. One of my favorite things about your humor is the way you mix actual facts in with the jokes.
Usually, I don't know up from down when reading one of your posts.
Possibly I should become educated, but it's more fun being thick.

That Sameach could've been a contender if he would have managed the clock better.
|Apr-06-15|| ||technical draw: <Tiggler> It took me a while But I finally got it. Friedrich Sämisch, right?|
|Apr-07-15|| ||Tiggler: "Sämisch it Ever Was":
Saemisch vs Gruenfeld, 1929
|Apr-11-15|| ||technical draw: New forum name.|
|Apr-11-15|| ||juan31: TD. No se mucho, creo ( sin consultar el diccionario) que " armagedeon" es el fin del mundo, bueno si es asi, por favor trata que Puerto Rico y México no entren en eso.
|Apr-11-15|| ||technical draw: <juan31> Lo siento, todo el mundo será afectado por los evento que en conjunto se llama armagedon. Para fines prácticos es el fin del mundo como lo conocemos hoy.|
|Apr-11-15|| ||Tiggler: I thought Armageddon was New Testament. Is it in the Torah? Honest question.|
|Apr-12-15|| ||technical draw: <Tiggler> The Torah is written mainly to teach the Israelites how to live in conformity with God's commands. Armageddon refers to the last battle (in the valley of Megiddo) between Israel and much of the rest of the world.|
However in popular use Armageddon refers to the end of the world or nuclear holocaust. The New Testament has a lot of references to the final days.
The study of end times is called eschatology or apocalyptic studies. It is profound and controversial. Thanks for asking.
|Apr-13-15|| ||juan31: Una disculpa TD, pense que era un broma lo de "armagedon" después me di cuenta que era en serio.|
|Apr-13-15|| ||technical draw: <juan 31> Si, Juan. Es uno de los pocos temas que tomo en serio. El año 2015 no promete cosas buenas para el mundo.|
|Apr-14-15|| ||Tiggler: <technical draw> .. and thanks for answering. I guess you got it why I added <Honest question> to that inquiry. A lot of (over?)sensitive feelings out there.|
|Apr-14-15|| ||technical draw: <Tiggler> < A lot of (over?)sensitive feelings out there.> Yes. And a lot of mocking.|
|Apr-14-15|| ||technical draw: I have advanced an interpretation of Isaiah 38:5 and people started saying that I was predicting the world will end in 2015. I also interpreted Daniel 11:37 and people started saying that I said the anti-christ will be a Jewish homosexual. These are just studies not prophesies. The give and take of Jewish intellectualism and debate is unknown here (at least by many people).|
|Apr-14-15|| ||Tiggler: So if the world does end in 2015, it seems you have renounced any credit for predicting it.|
|Apr-14-15|| ||technical draw: <Tiggler> Again I am not predicting anything. Isaiah is the prophet.|
|Apr-15-15|| ||technical draw: <Now, with a "framework" deal on Iran's nuclear program in place, and with the P5+1 countries working with Iran on a finalized deal by the end of June, Russia is keen to capitalize on lifting sanctions to resume business with Iran. China has also just agreed to build nuclear plants for Iran. Their decision looks like a sign of things to come.>|
|Apr-15-15|| ||technical draw: Flash from the past. Well just last years birthday:
technical draw: ok folks, it's official. As of today I am an old man. Today I turn 65..There are a few benefits. I get front of the line privileges in some places. And I get medicare,Obama care, and I could care less care. And if I say something dumb people won't dare laugh. "It's just his age, dear".
I have done a lot of things in my 65 years. Some of which I regret deeply. I have been kind and bitter. I have been violent when unnecessary. I have caused pain to others which breaks my heart just to think of it. I have traveled the world and have been involved in dangerous situations that at that time I thought were cool.
All and all it's been a long 65 years. I have mixed feeling about my life. So that's enough for sad life stories. Did I mention I won funniest kibitzer 7 years in a row?
|Apr-17-15|| ||Deus Ex Alekhina: To say that there will be war in the Mideast is not much of a stretch, since that area has never really been at peace; but all-out nuclear war? Involving the super-powers? Absurd. Maybe you can tell who the two "witnesses" (their bodies left in the street for days) are and what does 666 mean? I have read that 666 stands for the number of "computer" and elsewhere, it stands for the UPC code. And the antichrist with the wound on his head was supposed to be Korbachev, with the birthmark on his forehead. The "signs" that you see now have been around in one form or another for 2000 years.|
|Apr-17-15|| ||technical draw: <Deus> Sorry, no comments on apocalyptic events.|
|Apr-19-15|| ||LucB: Belated Happy Birthday to one of my favourite kibitzers! I still listen to Mr. Daskal from time to time.|
