Mytwocents> I'm sure it's been asked before but what's with the pixellation on those photos?

Is it to discourage such thoughts as suggested by Demophon?

(Yes, I was using both my hands to type....why do ya ask? :O )

Regarding your observation about factual people.
Well having just pull this out of my much bigger ass. Prime Time Farkers seem to be far more critical and serious than non-Prime Time Farkers. Any guesses as to why?
Mine are that the spouse/sig.other and/or kiddies are still up and about, savaging their will to live.

There are also Japanese Jews but I would be very leary of their version of kishke (stuffed derma).

Hey MyTwoCents, I'm Jewish too. What a coincidence, huh?

Would a Chinese Jew also have ninja stars-of-David?

Remember the joke from "Welcome Back Kotter"? 'Do you have Chinese Jews?' 'No. We have orange jews, grape jews, apple jews, and tomato jews. No Chinese jews.'

OK, I'm back....but I won't bother anyone with more pictures, I realize that it upset a lot of people who visited "Mall Madness (complete with Sim Santa gettin their freak on)" when they all the comments only to find that the conversation turned to slutty outfits and horses, etc... SO I won't bother anyone...but the pixel thing on my face Stereoman is because I've got some serious ovaries (get it, as in 'balls') when it comes to some stuff, but I also don't particularly want my face popping up anywhere on fark or the net for that dad is a computer geek so he spends lots of time on the net and I wouldn't want him to find a not-so-nice picture or his daughter.... Still haven't decided what to wear, and to be honest, my middle name is 'just in case' I am an overpacker from hell, so I'll probably end up bringing it all....although I think I will probably follow the advice of fellow farkers, I mean that was the purpose of putting them up there in the first place. BenJammin wanna play the jewish geography game? Do you know............

Do you know what happens when you throw lemons at a chinese restaurant?

The jews runs out.

I was doing research for a report on Judaism for a high school class, and one of the few books on the subject in the school library was from the mid 60s. It had a map that showed the number of Jews in different parts of the world. Most of them were fairly rough estimates, rounded to the thousands. China had 26. Exactly 26.

Bmartin, your book is obviously flawed. Many Jews who settled into Kaifeng were assimilated over centuries.

The success of later generations of Jews meant they held high official positions. This resulted in dispersion (magistrates couldn't hold court in their own hometowns).

Besides, by the 60s they had already been using Chinese surnames for centuries - a mark of integration that removed discrimination from these erstwhile foreigners. The number of ethnic Jews (however they are defined) in the 60s would have numbered in the thousands, most of whom would have totally lost their Jewish identity.

And to this day, we celebrate our origins by having Chinese food on Christmas.
2001-12-27 10:01:24 AM  
China was one of the few places where jews were actually assimilated to extinction, mostly because of the fact that to eat really good chinese food, they couldn't remain kosher.

Funny, they don't look Jewish.
