A dead racoon seemed to have attached itself to my face and I cannot get it off. It makes my face itch.
I was going to submit my usual content-less post, however out of fear of the physical and emotional abuse that I would receive from the Maxiebaby, I have decided instead to submit this hilarious news item. (I cannot be held responsible if you lack a sense of humour and fail to find this funny).
The problem with censorship is that if you start censoring blog content, you’ll probably wind up just censoring bloggers who are the cause of too much content being censoring, sort of bite the problem in the butt (as I think the expression goes). For someone like myself, who doesn’t have any moral, ethical or religious standards to speak of, a person such as myself who has no limitations in terms of appropriateness and generally no self control, I would likely be the first to be kicked straight off, (kick the problem out with a boot to the butt, as the expression goes). Although, what would the consequences of that be? Just me being disgruntled and starting my own blog where I bad mouth each and everyone of you on a daily basis. Obviously some may say they would just not look at the blog, but would your curiosity really keep you away from all the lashon harah and lies being said about you, not to mention the consequences of everyone else reading up the slander I post. This type of thing is typical of censorship and therefore I would suggest that in order to solve the problem, we must cut off our internet entirely, all of us, and throw away all your computers into my garage, where I will take all precautions to dispose of them appropriately.
I was somewhat disturbed by the number of people willing to limit their expression on this blog to images of non-nude non-fat people. (What about non-nude fat people? Or nude non-fat people?)
Doesn't this blog have some kind of limitation on pictures of nude disgustingly obese people?
Just thought I let everyone know that I missed the deadline last night, wasn't near a computer until after midnight, so unfortunately I'm out. Nonetheless I will continue to post as that is the whole purpose of this competition.
I posted this at 11:30 central time. For me it is still Saturday, but for the majority of posters it is already Sunday. Does this count?
Find an avatar for Jon and TF! Suggestions will be taken throughout the week with the winner to be announced on the upcoming Motz (hatip - Gaby N' Fish)...
And while you're at it, you can get one for Tommy.
This is what kind of lawyer I want to be.
I feel bad about my last post, not bad enough to delete it though. Actually allow me to qualify that last sentence by saying that I do feel bad enough to delete it, but when you factor my laziness into the equation it just barely pushes into the "no-delete" decision. Hope that makes sense.
So, Miss Crow was only joking about the one square thingy. I thought it would be prudent for me to be the THIRD BLOGGER to point this out.
It turns out that Sheryl Crow says that she was only joking, so you can all return to your old habits.
OK, I need a post before Shabbos to stay in the competition, but I got nothing. I think the Will It Blend videos are quite amusing and I thought this one was particularly funny.
Gaby N' Fish IS Charlie! He would rather be asleep, can be convinced to do anything and when he does do it he invariably has to give up body parts. Who made this movie based on our lovable friend?
Just a quick update, after 5 days here's the story (in alphabetical order):
I'm going to Baltimore tomorrow, fellas (and ladies), so you'll have to carry on without me for a few days.
On your birthday ♥ May your roto team have a refuah sheleimah, especially Felix Hernandez.
The new game sensation that is sweeping the nation! It is not volleyball, not baseball, not football but SEPAK TAKRAW - volleyball with no hands!!! Anyone want to start a team with me?
I decided to share the website that has been ruining my life for the past 6 months.
For those of you that haven't heard...

I can still remember how Maxiebaby used to eat these Tabatchnick's soup in a bag back in the good old days of OTI. It's hard to imagine that until last week I had never consumed one myself. It all happened so quickly. Simon, my roommate, mentioned to me that he accidentally purchased the "vegetarian chili" variety of Tabatchnick's soup in a bag and that if I didn't eat it he would throw it out, because quite frankly he hates Tabatchnick's vegetarian chili in a bag. It was perfect timing. My dinner options were quite limited and having not gone grocery shopping since before Passover I was eager to try anything that would alleviate my insatiable hunger. Fortunately at the time I wasn't aware that my hunger was insatiable, otherwise I never would've attempted to alleviate it in the first place, but that's a story for another time. Anyhow back to Tabatchnick's vegetarian chili in a bag. The preparation instructions for heating on the stove top were written on the box as follows:
Check out the video on CNN about the woman who was killed because her camel sat on her. Don't think ill of the camel, it is mating season...One of the weirder things about the video are the wedding pictures of the deceased and her husband. He is wearing a bowtie and tux jacket but no shirt. Was that an oversight? Are people going to start coming to Shul like that?
How come the hockey puck one says not to try it at home but the one with the cell phones does not? Why are cell phones a safer blending alternative?
There are relatively few passages in Talmudic literature that allude to the Ta'amei Ha-miqra, and I suspect that most of them will be familiar to anyone who has read through any of the modern works on that topic. This week I came across an interesting passage in Yerushalmi Hagigah (2:3) which contains a clear reference to the ta'amei ha-miqra and to the way in which they are used to divide a sentence.
I agree that 3.14... should lose some of his trailing digits. Wouldn't 355⁄113 be quite sufficient? This fraction also has the advantage of being named after Tintin's dog.
Gaby totally stole my post for today, but in the spirit of the NHL playoffs, I am still going to go ahead and post my video of hockey puck blending.
Petition to force 3.141, etc. to change his name to something more manageable (e.g. 3.14, or 3.14152 if he insists). The extremely long username messes up the blog in Firefox.

In molecular symmetry terms, the six lone pair orbitals from the ligands (one from each ligand) form six Symmetry Adapted Linear Combinations (SALCs) of orbitals, also sometimes called Ligand Group Orbitals (LGOs). The irreducible representations that these span are a1g, t1u and eg. The metal also has six valence orbitals that span these irreducible representations - the s orbital is labeled a1g, a set of three p-orbitals is labeled t1u, and the dz2 and dx2−y2 orbitals are labeled eg. The six σ-bonding molecular orbitals result from the combinations of ligand SALC's with metal orbitals of the same symmetry.
As I was eating my breakfast this morning i got wondering what would be if Cap'n Cruch*(tm) got in a fight with the Honey Bee*(tm), who would win? And do you think Toucan Sam*(tm) has any chance? What about the "Silly Rabbit" from Trix*(tm)?
I'll let you enjoy the article below and I'll save my comments for the end of the post. From cbc.ca:
Here's another killer (pardon the pun):
I just bought a recliner at Cosmos Furniture, the store in the news item below.
I first heard about this story on my way to work this morning thanks to the free daily 'Metro' which I was lucky (unlucky?) enough to pick up on the subway. Original story from the Toronto Star (aprox 2 weeks ago):
Are all the people who did not post yesterday out already? Perhaps we should impose more severe punishments such as flogging or the pillory or something?
Just thought I'd google around to see if Monty Python was a popular choice of (artwork?) amongst tattooists (sp?). Anyhow, I couldn't really find anything and I was about to give up when I got a hit on the online version of the 'Hannibal Courier Post' (a daily newspaper in Hannibal, Missouri, USA). Unfortunately I had to register in order to view their website (it's a slow work day here. Actually it's not. It's pretty busy, but I need my breaks), so now Jack Bauer is officially a member of their online community (good for him I say!). Anyhow, they have this picture of this fellow Jason Lamb at the gathering of the National Tattoo Association in St. Louis (the 'Academy Awards' of tattooing) but I can't really make out if his whole leg is Monty Python themed, or if it's only part of it, or what's exactly going on on that fellow's epidermis.
Yesterday was the first warm day of spring here in Chicago, so I went out to buy ice cream at Coldstone which makes the best ice cream in the world. The woman who served me had this bizarre tattoo on her forearm of a man in shadow. I looked a little closer and noticed that this man was quite tall, wearing a bowler hat and had one leg kicked up higher than his own head. Thinking to myself, this can't be what I think it is, I asked her what the tattoo represnted. It turns out that it was a tattoo of John Cleese from Monty Python doing a silly walk on her arm. I mean, it was an excellent skit, very, very funny, but good enough to permanently carve into your body? People are crazy.
Man some people should start blogging. Maybe then they would not have so much free time.
Since we received a threatening email from Gaby, we felt the need to post something. So here you go:
I wasn't going to but now that everyone else is...Tomorrow is the CN tower jump by the way. I hear everyone is doing it...
I was going to post this as a comment to hevnsangel19's post, but I'm not sure if comments count for the contest, so I'll do this as a separate post even though it is really intended as a comment for the "today is yom hazikaron" post.
This is my personal favorite. I think it beats anything out there.
Here is a very hilarious video by Alanis Morrisette (Morissete, Morrissette... I dont care) singing a parody of "My humps" by the black Eyed Peas and mocking the current state of music. Absolutely hilarious. Already one of the most ridiculous songs ever made, she takes it one step further. Warning: This may be slightly inappropriate for our younger readers.
An exert from the Little Giant Encyclopedia of Proverbs:
I have it in mind that this one new post of the day should be valid, the equivalent and count for future posts for each and every single day until I have officially won the ultimate blogger challenge and the $5000 grand prize promised by gaby n’fish at that time. As a kinyan for this, will take my hat and wave it in the air and throw it onto my desk which will symbolically represent the physical form of Gaby’s Gobbledygook for the next few moments.
Ok, come on guys. A couple of people have mentioned to me that they wish that the bloggers would be more active, and the truth is if it weren't for HWMNBN we probably wouldn't have a blog anymore, so I figure we should all try and make it a place where we could actually waste time on a daily basis, as opposed to say a weekly or monthly basis (because currently there aren't that many posts per day and I work a minimum of 8 hours a day, which doesn't translate too well).
Nothing very specific to report vis a vis the parasha this week, only an interesting midrash to quote. "Rabbi Asi said, 'Why is it that children begin studying from Toras Kohanim and not from Bereishis? Because children are pure and sacrifices are pure..." The passage is from Vayikra Rabbah (7:3), with a variant in Midrash Tanchuma (Tzav#14) and is quoted in Mahzor Vitry at the end of Hilchos Milah in a context which seems to imply that it was actually put into practice in early medieval northern France. While the rationale for this practice appears to have been religious rather than purely pedagogical, I wonder if there is any value in implementing it as an educational strategy.
