    We are currently in the year 5765
    The year number on the Jewish calendar represents the number of years since creation, calculated by adding up the ages of people in the Bible back to the time of creation. However, this does not necessarily mean that the universe has existed for only 5600 years as we understand years.

    Shhhhh! We're secretly pushing them off into the Atlantic. We tried to just carve Boston out with the big dig, but it hasn't worked yet.

    We had an earthquake here in MA?
    Ullrichk-That's just about what's happening with the big dig too...did anyone see/hear the story of the debris falling down inside the tunnel on several vehicles, including an AMR ambulance with a patient in it? "Supposedly" it was debris falling down an uncovered airshaft from road crews above...
    The comments made by me are my opinions only, not of the Fire and EMS services I am affiliated with.

    I have lost my mind..has anyone seen it? it's not worth much..but it's mine

    Anybody got a Koran handy?

    In an attempt to find a reference to this metaphor in the Koran, Silwadi said he counted 1776 verses from the beginning of the Koran until he reached verse 26 of the Ibrahim Sura, which states: "And the parable of an evil word is as an evil tree pulled up from the earth's surface; it has no stability."
    But if we use the Jewish year, as posted previously by Robertsc:

    We are currently in the year 5765.
    What would we get if we used that number for counting verses?

    You know, there's a reason Ronald Reagan vetoed that boondoggle in the 80s when Tip O'Neill was trying to ram it through. He said it would eat up money - and it did. Wehn it began in the early 90s it was supposed to cost like $2.5 Billion - it is now just shy of $15 Billion. Now Seattle wants to sink a road like the Big Pig........Er, I mean the Big Dig so they can blow another $15 Billion federal tax dollars.

    As for the quake, Massachusetts will fall off into the Atlantic when California falls into the Pacific. Just so long as New Hampshire stays where it is, a beacon of logical folks amidst all that nutty stuff in the Northeast.

    Yes, I heard it on the news. They played several 911 tapes from people calling to report it. They said it could be felt from Wareham to Westport. It was small but measurable, a 2.(?) something.

    I beg to differ. My commentary isn't satire. It's the truth. I can easily defend my observations of norm just based on his postings.

    And if you don't like what we have to say, you can do what norm does, pretend to put us on your 'ignore' list.

    Default Ignore List?....Nah

    Now why would I do that? I am not afraid to debate you degenrates like Noz is. You wanna poke at someone's ignore list, go for his. He is the coward who can't take the heat and ignores everyone.
