Get back to work! The chicken-on-rabbi kapara site has proved so popular that some of you seem to have spent the day playing! Hmmm. (If you were wondering, the text roughly says, “After thousands of years of the kapara ritual, they decided to seek revenge. This Yom Kippur they are here. Grumbling and pissed off. Revenge of the chickens.” Then, the directions are to set the force and angle and throw your kapara!)
Stop the real kapara: It is a practice continued by a tiny minority of ultra-orthodox, but I agree with the animal rights groups that want to end it.
Boom, boom, boom goes the bass drum: Well, actually, it is artillery fire in the distance. I have to think that it is ours. Nadine is shluffing quietly, so I’ll take my cue from her. It’s a side-effect of the war: Pavlovian conditioning at its worst.
Site down? Ever wonder what is really going on when you can’t access a favorite website? Hat tip to former student SM.
