I see, said the blind procrastinator-

Let’s take a look at what the Torah says. There is a profound passage in the Talmud that talks about how it is even possible for a person to become indignant and self righteous, or commit any sin for that matter. The Talmud says it can only happen if a person is overcome by a “ruach shtus”, literally, a spirit of mishagos. When we are caught in our egoic mishagos we look outside to find the problems, not inside. We see things wrong with everything but ourselves. We see life with absolutely no humility. Other people are hypocritical, other people are thoughtless, other people are insensitive but our behavior gets conveniently rationalized. It’s a perspective that comes from the spirit of mishagos and we all fall into it.

Yeah, I even wrote "Merry Christmas" in Afrikaans.

"how bout zulu:"

I'm having enough problem with Afrikaans.

Johnny Dollars,

It has always been my contention that word verification will eventually piss someone off in their native language, though my guess has been some country east of Poland, and west of Mongolia.
