I have heard much about Boris Karshina, but cannot find any biographical information for him on the Internet (other than here, where his name is misspelled). Please help me!

Edit: Never mind, I found him here on Facebook. (Apparently my jokes are not original...)

  • Help us out a bit. I see the linked question. But, please translate the Aramaic term, literally. – DanF Feb 18 '18 at 4:00

    @DanF What Aramaic term? It is about a Russian person, not anything Aramaic! – רבות מחשבות Feb 18 '18 at 4:12

    I'm willing to lose a point just to protest the allowance of these ridiculous questions, IMHO. – user8726 Feb 18 '18 at 7:07

    @DanF Purim Torah aside: borit means an alkaline cleanser; (you'll find the prophet talking about washing away their sins with neter and borit) karshinin are a kind of bean usually used as animal feed, usually translated as "vetch." So it was some kind of alkaline solution made from these beans. Artscroll half-translates "Karshina lye"; R' Aryeh Kaplan says "vetch lye." – Shalom Feb 18 '18 at 13:21

    And like many random people on the Internet, don't believe anything that Boris says! It's almost certainly a lye and/or a k'vetch. In fact, everyone he's come into contact with winds up just shutting down conversations with nuh-uh! – Shalom Feb 18 '18 at 9:17
  • @Shalom this would make more sense as a comment to Shmuel's answer below... But excellent point! – רבות מחשבות Feb 18 '18 at 15:11

You could try asking him directly.

    A simple google search revealed two such people. And yes, omg. – Dr. Shmuel Feb 18 '18 at 6:16

    @ezra, Shmuel, not likely a real person. It's just a google account for someone with that name. See this facebook page as an illustration facebook.com/people/Boris-Karshina/100009793695456 – רבות מחשבות Feb 18 '18 at 6:24

    Clearly that guy thought of this joke first. – Dr. Shmuel Feb 18 '18 at 13:25
  • @Shmuel, indeed, see the edit to my question. – רבות מחשבות Feb 18 '18 at 15:11
