Perfectionists and Pragmatists

Some people want the best… others are¬†okay with good enough.



A True Monster

“If you have lived in cities and have walked in the park on a summer afternoon, you have perhaps seen, blinking in a corner of his iron cage, a huge, grotesque kind of monkey, a creature with ugly, sagging, hairless skin below his eyes and a bright purple underbody. This monkey is a true monster. in the completeness of his ugliness he achieved a kind of perverted beauty. Children stopping before the cage are fascinated, men turn away with an air of disgust, and women linger for a moment, trying perhaps to remember which one of their male acquaintances the thing in some faint way resembles.”

– Sherwood Anderson, Winesburgh, Ohio, pg. 121.

Learn Biblical Hebrew

Not sure about you, but if I ever endeavor to learn biblical Hebrew it is not going to be from a website named “”. Additionally, I would hope that whoever runs the advertising program for wherever it is that I may learn Hebrew from would realize that, in English, words like “courses,” “proficient,” “demo” and “lesson” are not supposed to be capitalized when used in the middle of a sentence.

And “”? For real? What the heck kind of a domain name is that?!

UPDATE: As was just pointed out to me, says that they are accredited by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, which, I would assume, lends about as much credibility to as one could hope for. None the less, I still think the domain name is ridiculous.
