Celebrating Towel Day by forgetting a towel

Today, fans of the late Douglas Adams celebrate the Towel Day in his memory.
I managed to celebrate it by forgetting, for 1st time since I started to exercise in that particular gym, to bring my obligatory towel to the gym today.
Fortunately, a paper towel was available.

Not bothering to vote means voting for the candidate you hate the most

Yesterday, USA elected the next President. Obama won the elections by clear cut margin. There was higher than usual turnout of voters.

Next Tuesday, on Nov. 11th, there will be municipal elections in Israel. In some cities, in particular Jerusalem, the elections will have critical importance.

I’d like to urge everyone eligible to vote – to vote in those elections.

Remember, if you do not bother to vote, you in effect are voting for the candidate you hate the most!

An accessible video clip

… which is in stark contrast to the ultra-Orthodox attitude against people with disabilities.

The captioned (in Hebrew) video clip is the second video in (in Hebrew), and it is about a book shop, which avoids displaying an anti-religion book due to threats from the town’s rabbi’s wife.

Meme time!

Reply to this and I will…

  1. Tell you why I befriended you.
  2. Associate you with a song/movie.
  3. Tell a random fact about you.
  4. Tell my first memory of you.
  5. Associate you with an animal/fruit.
  6. Ask something I’ve always wanted to know about you.
  7. In return, you MUST spread this disease in your lj.

How to say "my car was stolen"?

  • The bastards stole my car shortly before it was going to need overhaul!
  • My car succumbed to the charms of a car thief and eloped with him.
  • My car has been organlegged (inspired by Larry Niven).
  • I suspect that my car was enlisted to assist in a bank robbery.
  • My car was sold, in exchange for $0 and notification of the police, to a car thief.
  • The powers from the Guild of Car Thieves decided for me that it is the time to explore the antics of public transportation and my friends’ cars, as a passenger.

About having two ears and one mouth

According to Dale Carnegie, God gave humans two ears and only one mouth so that they’ll speak less and listen more.
For deaf people, it is two eyes vs. one mouth.
What about exterrestrials with two mouths and one ear? If they have a Dale Carnegie, he would have said to them that this is what they got because speech is cheap – they got two mouths – but listening is precious – they have only one ear for this.


World of potential for mercy and compassion,
of room for grace and reconciliation,
teach all your children in the Middle East:
Jews, Muslims and Christians,
Bahai’s, Druzes and Buddhists,
Atheists and Agnosticians,
Palestinians and Israelis and Syrians and Iranians,
Let us value and love our fellow human beings
more than we value our beliefs, God or Gods.
Let hatred be turned into love, fear to trust, despair to hope,
oppression to freedom, occupation to liberation,
that violent encounters may be replaced by loving embraces,
and peace and justice could be experienced by all.
Let us swear that we shall never let Gods incite war and hatred among human beings.
