A qualified chemist who somehow drifted into web development. I've learned (to a greater or lesser degree of accuracy) PHP and JavaScript, and would like to learn something completely different for the sake of it. I'm a weirdo who actually enjoys reading (and sometimes writing) technical documentation.

comment Is it okay to enjoy Christmas lights?
@avi. I've certainly heard of some Christians avoiding Christmas (I was brought up in such a tradition; see also Oliver Cromwell, who banned the celebration in England during his time as Protector), but I've never heard of Catholics doing so. They're generally fairly relaxed about "pagan practices". (I'm Irish, and shall therefore mention that Cromwell was a genocidal bastard, though this is not particularly germane to his views on Christmas.)

revised Christmas and Ex-mas
This started as a simple correction of "chi" to "chi rho" as the symbol. It sort of got out of hand and perhaps is a bit too much.

I'm not sure that keeping things in your socks necessarily leads to blisters. Is that not the standard place to keep a dirk?

comment Christmas and Ex-mas
It's not an acronym: just an initial. And however people use it now, it began as a simple scribal abbreviation.

Corrected spelling in title. Moved disclaimer to end (this improves the relevancy of the excerpt in the question preview).

revised Source that Avraham's tent was open on all sides?
Tidied formatting and grammar. I did very slighly copyedit the quoted source too (removed an inaccurate space in /13 th/ and corrected the spelling of /guest/).

Does the fact that the text in question included both slander and racism have any bearing on the question?

revised Why does belief in Judaism require irrationality?
Tidied grammar slightly. Very small changes really, but I think the brackets and the paragraph break improve readability.
