They are sub-tropical critters, equatorial even. Fair enough...call it climate change. Besides, is that even excessively cold for Minnesota in mid-January?

<quoted text>Nice, you had an election and nobody died. 60/60 split makes a winner? I'll never get this shit.
Bibi almost died watching the news.:-))))))
The 60/60 split you got it wrong, maybe my mistake. It just means that in total, i.e. all the votes in all the different parties combined comes out to a 50/50 situation. Still they count each individual party and not the total combined, that can come up in the coalition process when you need a majority of 61 seats or more and the winner will choose his partners in the government. Its a SHITTY process, I think the new guys will try to change that .

I declare central Florida the telltale and you can't do a thing about it. It's not about the presence of the snakes in the Glades, it's if they are found above the traditional frost line indicating that global warming has expanded their range. You should be seeing armadillos on the roadside up there any minute then.
Hey, unlike most Wednesdays, I wasn't home,Halflytely. Get it? Have Friday off to attend some business. I'll miss you.

Usually, I'd complain that I'd be taking you with me in my phone but please...leave me home :)

At 60 F. they are laid out like pick-up sticks across Krome Avenue trying to get warm in the sun. At 49 F. up here they'd be frozen stiff and/or dead. Pray I never find one up here or your house is under water.

Oh, I get it, now. Duh! Chicken broth ain't like coffee. Eran's Man wants to draft Torah professionals into the IDF. Cool. I never realized they were exempt from Military Service. Like our current Administration, he's all about fairness.:<(

I think they even draw a paycheck for studying and arguing. It's a little unsettling when Eran declares his man the big winner and names him "Kingmaker". It's less so when the same language comes from the WSJ.

Kingmaker advocates giving up the West Bank but wants to retain Jerusalem. Think that it would entice those peaceful Pali's? No mention of the 67 borders. Same crap in a different wrapper. I laugh every time I see that 67 borders thing. They hauled asz and left the Israelis to be slaughtered.

I think they should be aiming for the 2067 borders, they may have a peace deal by then.

It's all show and no go while they are divided. I wouldn't make peace with the PA while Hamas was free to be the spoiler. They need to unify under the banner of negotiating a final solution that makes everyone happy, otherwise, they have popcorn farts

We are not as crazy as I thought. Our elections are over with 34 parties participating in the votes. Sounds pretty bad except if you look at another Middle Eastern country, Jordan. The elections are on the way with not fewer than 60 parties. Sick area very sick area. Its all Englands fault, we took their system. Shit.

The Egyptian election is still going on even though the vote was held last year. I guess if you don't like the outcome, you just riot until enough people die to force a no-confidence vote because the administration can't control the population.

Do you suppose this guy can read the shirt he's wearing?

They changed it, you had to be there. It was a crowd in the square with all but one guy facing away. The guy facing the camera standing on the barricade wore a shirt that said "fcuk the system".
