1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Has anybody actually read the book of Genesis? It is really good in a Terrence Malik sort of way.

    Good for you, Rube. I am assuming this is undercover, investigative sort of stuff? ;)

    i've always wanted to ask why are bloody steaks kosher (you know cuz in the noah story god says you're not allowed to eat meat with blood in it)? i think i heard something about it's ok if you let the blood from the animal drain for 3 days, but doesn't meat still have lifeblood in it? who determines what's kosher and what's not?

    Did that in class debate today. We slaughtered them (final vote was 38-4 in our favor). I got them to admit to being communists and that unicorns exist.

    It was actually pretty fun.

    Are Jews for Jesus looked down upon amongst the community?

    <---not "teh j00" to quote Stichela, but I think the point is that death must occur by exsanguination because it is considered more humane, not that you literally have to suck out all the blood before you can eat it.

    So what you are saying is that Jews are not vampires? :confused:

    Oy gevalt. This post shows not only a poor understanding of Judaism but religion in general.

    I mean, "what's kosher?" It's not like there's only one "kosher." I mean, there's "kosher" then there's a stricter from "glatt," and then I think an ever stricter one than that called "mehadrin."

    Who determines what's "kosher?" Seems to me every rabbi. :laugh:

    As to who determines a kitchen, slaughterhouse, etc. is maintaining the appropriate level of kosher, that would be a mshgiach.

    Religion is complex.

    Priests say you only gave to give up something for lent, and can, in fact, eat meat on Fridays if you are between the ages of 18 and 64. :rolleyes:

    I'm reasonably certain that is the case. I suspect vampires are actually the Irish. They derive almost all their sustenance from liquids, they're terrified of Catholic Priests, and their extremely fair skin commonly combusts when met with natural sunlight.

    For Lent I'm going to give up orange juice. It will be difficult to manage but I'm confident a good Bloody Mary or a gin and cranberry juice can take the place of a Screwdriver.
