    Heh, counting the hairs on a camels nuts. [​IMG]
    David sure is laying it on thick with the Hi-Def gospel isn't he? My software thread morphed into an over-the-top HD info-mercial. Jesus, tone it down dude, take a valium or something.
    Priceless moment:
    David trying to convince someone who can't afford and with no interest in HD, to start buying HD-DVD's now so in 5 years time when he can afford to upgrade to a decent display he'll be able to enjoy 'em. Huh? WTF?
    Never mind me, I'm not a film enthusiast because I didn't jump on HD. I'm just some jerk who likes to waste his money on collecting DVD's for the hell of it. Whatever. This kind of fanaticism just goes to prove my original argument.

    Heh...no hurry there, Zen. Speaking of all things Semitic, and Scarlett Johansson, I found out only recently that her mom is from a Jewish family, which technically makes her Jewish as well...ba-da-BING!
    Although this casting anecdote is pretty amusing:

    So what is a Djinn Chris? A classification of genie?
    Zen, that Scarlett sure is a babe, I couldn't take my eyes off her in the Michael Bay classic The Island. She's only 21 and probably as thick as a plank, but with those looks who cares? [​IMG]

    It's rather obscure what is the connection between Latin "genius", which basically means a tutelary spirit, and Arabic "Djinni", a sort of demigod. In any case the English "Genie" appears to come from the latter. The Djinni, I have heard, were the gods of the ancient Nabateans, and were embodied by blocks of stone of different sizes, but fixed proportions — 2×3×5, or something. Apparently this was common to the ancient Semitic peoples, which would go some way to explaining the significance of the Ark of the Covenant, with its stone tablets, and the commandment to use only unhewn stones in the altar of God.

    Christopher, I'm off to Google like 75% of your post. I'll be back with a reply around Christmas.
