Awwww....it's nice to see you two getting along together. There's something strangely hypnotic about that avatar, I can't place it exactly but I think there's a subliminal message buried in there someplace.

Only message is Valentine's Day is coming up. You rather I be an 8-ball again? I decided the world only needs one of him. ;)

I've always had a thing for cupcake frosting. After I've had my way with it, I throw away the cake. As for the subliminal message, when you get banned as much as I do, it's appropriate.

Valentine's Day? Holy craps. Only Wimmins remember that corny day. Say it isn't so. Or are you Scot Haney?

Calm down. I'm not Scot but if you're interested, I hear he's available. It's not a corny day; apparently you're not a good lover.

Where's my Valentine? Put my cupcake back, sans frosting. I'll bring my own. LOL

Valentine's Day. Like a milestone birthday and a dentist appointment all wrapped up into one, Valentine's Day is pretty much the most evil holiday ever to go commercial. We're not surprised it's connected to a massacre. Word.

Dang it! I almost had it.

Our new member just can't seem to decide on an appropriate avatar that reflect his/her personality. I've never seen avatars changed this much since Ize Lost. Deep insecurity/identity crisis is my guess. Wanna make a wish?

You did go through a few, I just thought yours were all too cool to get stuck on just one. I tried to keep up for a while there back in '10 but I got worn out after one in a row.

Nothing beats consistency. Except in cupcake frosting. One has to experiment with angles vs output.
Anyway, back on topic. What's with all the Internet news about Bibi winning but it was close and there's trouble ahead? I know it's a different system, but Michelle's attire stole the show here and the rest, well, doesn't really matter. 51 vs 47. Woe to the 47. Is there a bias, internationally in the election results in Israel? Are the Pali's skulking around the perimeter raining on the parade? New hardware to Egypt and.........Never mind. Dumb question. Go Bibi. Go IDF. Go Israel. And the new USA, GFY.

Close your eyes and imagine Bibi with bangs.

In the coming New Year, both Groundhog Day and the State of the Union address will occur on the same day. This is an ironic turn of events. One involves a meaningless ritual in which we look to an insignificant creature of little intelligence for guidance...The other involves a groundhog!

The Yesh Atid party led by Yair Lapid is the second largest party in the Israeli Knesset

Congrats Eran!

I'm not sure why second place is good but congratulations just the same. I hope Yesh Atid leads to world peace someday soon but for me it sounds more like what a cop would hear after asking a drunk redneck if he saw that row of mailboxes he just mowed over.

Our political system is entirely different than yours, a new party reaching second place is unthinkable, its like a third party winning more votes than the republicans or the democrats.

Further more, because our political system requires any designated prime minister to rely on a coalition of other parties, it gives the center parties who can tip the balance and veto a possible coalition unproportional leverage. Yesh Atid is the current king maker of Israeli politics, that makes Yair Lapid the pope.

I told you we"ll take this elections by storm, the middle class has spoken and its voice is thunder!
