  1. This cross out garbage is really boring. Yesterday, in another forum, for the first time in my 57 years, I note the words of William I, as he set foot in 1066 Hastings. "J'ai ici!" And look what garbage pops out sideways. I thank Eric Schmidt for making Google possible.

  2. Hineni is from the bible. There are no coincidences. The idea of here I am comes from the Old Testament directly. Give credit where credit is due, please.

  3. Jonathan safran Foer is a horrible person. He thinks we should eat dogs. He says, "…as Jonathan Safran Foer has argued in his book Eating Animals. He points to dogs as a plentiful and protein‑rich food source, and asks: "Can't we get over our sentimentality?" He continues: "Unlike all farmed meat, which requires the creation and maintenance of animals, dogs are practically begging to be eaten. If we let dogs be dogs, and breed without interference, we would create a sustainable, local meat supply with low energy inputs that would put even the most efficient grass-based farming to shame."
