The exact opposite of maror

Cannabis products have a long history in non-Ashkenazi Jewish culture. While cannabis can be construed as 'bitter' due to its alkaloid content, its effects are anything but.

The ruling being discussed below primarily pertains to cannabis' status as kitniyot and rejects the use of cannabis as a euphoric -- so no Four Tokes instead of Four Cups.

Today in 1528, Albrecht Dürer died. At the start of his career, as a young man in his twenties, he created a series of woodcuts to illustrate Sebastian Brant’s The Ship of Fools of 1494. Dürer scholar Rangsook Yoon explores the significance of these early pieces and how in their subtlety of allegory they show promise of his masterpieces to come: http://buff.ly/1XgEqDi

We just recently rolled out a new section of My Account - a list of the accounts you've blocked.

No more jumping through hoops to find someone if you need to unblock them, or to check if you already have someone blocked. Just visit https://myaccount.google.com and click on "Your personal info" -> "Blocked users" to open the list.

Want to unblock someone? Find them in the list and click the 'X' next to their name.

Note that you can't create blocks from My Account. New blocks are created in the products where you interact with people. This helps avoid blocking the wrong account: as it turns out there are a lot of people with similar names out there. We put the 'create block' option in places like G+ post menus or Hangouts conversation options so you know exactly who you'll be blocking.

I can almost understand Gentiles who do this with the New Testament -- but only almost. Decades of purely secular existence have made this behavior no less annoying to me.
He apparently does not consider the possibility that they know more about this subject than he does.

Hey, look. It's Elmer Gantry.

+Joseph Moosman​​​ - "Where are these people educated?" Vacation Bible school, mostly, plus home "schooling."​

+D. Luria​​​ - "...command of biblical language is passing rare among Evangelical or Pentacostal-type Christians. ...this is an expression of their emphasis on mystical, revelatory experience of the Divine belief in magic."

There, I fixed it for you.

The trend in digital interfaces for all purposes moves steadily in the direction of greater simplicity and ease -- but at what cost? Video games are an excellent lab for exploring UI design.

Today, let's talk about the Quest Compass. First, I'm an RPG fan, so this analysis will be mostly RPG-oriented. Second, when I say "Quest Compass" I'm referring to a very specific UI item: Its defining trait is that while the first three merely orient you or display your surroundings, ...
