Something random-

I've been reading up on ancient Canaanite religion recently, and it is a very interesting subject. Particularly when you look at it as the precursor religion to what would eventually become Judaism.

A lot of the god names are maintained in Hebrew- which is, itself, a Canaanite language- the only living (Although you could say resurrected) Canaanite language. Yam (long A, Yaam) for instance is one that is super easy to spot because the word, in Hebrew, for ocean is still yam.

It's a very interesting thing to study for me, as a Jewish person and a secular Zionist who ascribes to the notion that the Jewish people are the aboriginal people to the region of the world I've chosen to make my home.

However, from a history standpoint it's particularly interesting to see where my culture and the religion associated with said culture came from and evolved from.

@freemo Hi, Freemo! Great to be here, thank you.

I'm just a dude living a life in Tel Aviv. I'm no expert when it comes to STEM, and certainly not professionally educated in any such field but I am certainly a fan.

Outside of my interest in general knowledge, I'm into gaming, table top role playing, and have been a member of the telnet based Mu* (Mush/Mud/Mux) online Roleplaying communities for just about two decades now.

I'm big into discussing different topcs, always happy to learn something new, and share my own personal experiences and knowledge with any and everyone.

Okay, so the remake of Link's Awakening is extremely cute.

i mean, sure sure it's good they changed the rules and opened up to digital recently sure, but the fact that they didnt address their prior response in 2017 is kinda messed? like own up to what you did at least, say you were wrong, and that you realize you made the wrong decision in the first two inktobers lol.

One more part of Heb12 is now operational. I will work on a couple more parts, and then smooth things out. Then I can proceed into actually making a release. I am on a programming spree right now.

This is the first time I'm seeing one (1) star in the night (evening) sky from my new apartment.
I'm excited like a little child.

My Nephew has just received his birthday present, Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (The remake)

It will be his first Legend of Zelda game.

I hope he loves it.

Oh.. and when I was wondering about getting some kinda EU citizenship.....

There is a very high chance I would qualify for that. (As would my Mother, Sister, and Brother.)

I just spilled pumpkin spice coffee on my Hawaiian shirt so now I'm debating on taking the day off from work.

I'm so basic it hurts.

My cat has figured out that the zipper of my backpack hides the cat treats.

She just hasn't puzzled out how to use it.

A few years ago I thought that not being able to even draw a cloud was a very silly limit, and decided to try to get past it - and see how long it would have taken me.

Here are some pictures, from time 0 (before starting to study) to around 20 hours of studying and trying.
Feel free to laugh at my time 0 drawing, it's ridiculous, I know. I'm still bad at it, but it felt good to overcome a mental obstacle. Oftentimes, it takes less than one may think!
