    Uh, yeah, people strapping boxes to themselves on a plane would freak me right the fuck out, it's got nothing to do with religious intolerance.
    Plus:
    The Jewish Encyclopaedia says: 'As long as the tefillin are on the head and on the arm of a man, he is modest and God-fearing and will not be attracted by hilarity or idle talk, and will have no evil thoughts, but will devote all his thoughts to truth and righteousness.'
    So basically they're not allowed to be happy?? That's what, to them, their god wants?

    Only when the boxes are strapped on! So if they take them off, they can join in with us.

    plus it says "man".... not woman... so we're all ok!

    The boxes are so tiny you'd never fit a bomb in one anyway.

    Ok, my bad. Yeah, I'm feeling major grumpiness. Sorry about that.

    Our storage unit, which we chose because it's secure and expensive, sprung a leak. So before we leave the States, we have to move everything from there into a new unit, file insurance claims, throw away lots of beloved damaged books, pack up the house, get the international paperwork finished on the dog, deal with aging parents who don't appreciate, get teeth cleaned...

    I'm not sleeping much and I'm a bitch. Shouldn't have behaved like that.

    Thanks for that, olivia. I think there isn't anyone I know right now, either on the internet or personally, that isn't going thru SOMETHING right now, myself included. Hugs to you.

    Thanks for that sweetie. I need 'em.

    I know many Jewsih people. Never ever seen it or heard of it. Wonder if there will be copycats now that really do intend to harm.
