HASH TRASH - Run 665

HASH TRASH - RUN 665 
Hashing Between the Raindrops
Place: Ramat HaHayal
Hare: Fer Fox Sake
 
Sometimes Hashers get lucky. In the midst of a rainy, overcast weekend, we managed to find the only 2-hour window respite from the storm. The rain began falling again literally as we returned to the circle.
 
But what happened in between? A good run through the Ramat HaHayal high tech park and around the surrounding neighborhood. For those who don't know, Ramat HaHayal / Kiryat Atidim are the Tel Aviv equivalent of the Herzliya Pituach Industrial Zone -- lots of high-tech companies, lots of geeky yuppies with cash to burn -- and exactly the same restaurants as in Herzliya, too.
 
Speaking of Herzliya Pituach, there's a photo of a street sign which is making the rounds on the Internet right now. It's from the construction pit that has puzzled many a law-abiding citizen trying to get back home from the industrial zone without driving over a curb or traffic island, making an illegal U-turn, or breaking the front back axle* of their vehicle. The Hebrew says "No going left into Medinat HaYehudim" (which means "The Jewish State").
 
 
But it has a double meaning in Hebrew, which is something like, "There's no being a leftist in the Jewish State." Well, it's not that funny in English, but I thought you'd like the picture of the sign.
 
Back to the run. Blobs there were a-plenty, yet we somehow managed to lose Dr. Do-little -- or did he lose us? -- a bit before the halfway point. A listless rendition of "Father Abraham" was sung as we swiveled our necks in hopes of catching a glimpse of the good Doctor who, of course, simply short-cutted it back to the finish.
 
It's not cricket to make fun of Englishmen after a 5-0 series defeat by Australia condemned England to their first Ashes whitewash in 86 years. But fun it is, apparently, and Fer Fox Sake took full advantage of the opportunity to subject Dead Boring to a Down-down on behalf of England as they attempt to put losing the Ashes behind them. Probably it would have been more fun had there been any other Aussies or Brits present.
 
To make up for that deficiency, and to highlight another, the Yanks were then given a Down-down because of some news item about the winners of this year's Wacky Warning Label Contest, the existence of which apparently proves how stupid Americans are. Quite the contrary, as will be proven below and be forewarned: we regard this treatment as grounds for lawsuit**.
 
*This is a real term in Hebrew! As your local "Garagenik".
** We didn't get to be the world's most litigious country just by sitting on our Ashes!

PLUS... GOLDMEMBER GETS A MINI ME
So that's why she didn't show up on Saturday...
Congratulations are due to our new Hash Grand-mama! Lisa, daughter of Goldmember and In-and-Out, gave birth to Maayan Frieda (3 kilos 45 grams) on Saturday, January 6, at 10:30am. Mother and baby are doing well. Grandmother would like to go running and will happily welcome anyone who wants to trek out to Kochav Yair. Contact: 052 267 1796
 
AND... THE WACKY WARNING LABELS CONTEST WINNERS
This is actually a serious promotional campaign run by Michigan Lawsuit Abuse Watch. M-LAW is an organization that believes junk lawsuits are corrupting the US civil justice system and aims "to tell the truth about abusive litigation."

RUN 666 RE-RESCHEDULED
Will Take Place at Armageddon - No Kidding!
Run 666 will be held on December 20, somewhere around Mount Megiddo. This is the place that gave its name to the Armageddon of the Christian Bible.
More information about Megiddo's history may be found here:
and here:
 
But the basic number is that there is a prophecy in the New Testament's Book of Revelation predicting that the second-to-last battle in world history between the forces of good and evil - the final rebellion by Satan - will take place at Megiddo, followed by God's final defeat of Satan and the restoration of peace on earth. This encounter has become a byword for the end of the world. And what with things the way they are right now, there's no reason not to believe that the end of days isn't January 20th (or 13th...) 2007! So perhaps Run 666 (or 666.5) is meant to be the catalyst that will get the ball rolling toward the fiery finish... And if not, at least we will have had a nice trip on a bus, a good run, some beer and... T-shirts !!!
 
SO, PLEASE ANSWER THE FOLLOWING & RSVP TO: hashers_r_us@yahoo.com.
1. Are you coming to Run 666 on January 20th? Are you bringing children and/or friends?
2. What's your T-shirt size?
 
REMEMBER A SIMPLE REPLY TO THIS E-MAIL AND YOU WILL GET YOUR T-SHIRT (ALSO A PLACE ON THE BUS) !!!
 
IN CLOSING...
The Teachings of Jesus On Hell... in Lego !!!
