So you leave the 'o' out so the
god you don't believe in won't
be pissed off. It's respect for
something that don't believe
exists. Okay Doaky, whatever
you say..



I've known lots of Jews who left the o out of God. In fact, probably all of the devout conservative ones. About the paper being thrown away, I didn't know that was the reason, but find it interesting. I previously thought it was more of a show of respect, like Voldemort.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Pretty much the same with me. I went to synagogue until I was about 14 and I had a bar mitzvah. I donít believe in G-d and I havenít been to a synagogue outside of a funeral in well over 10 years but some things have stuck with me.

I was 14 when stopped going as well.

I'm not a fan of Jeopardy or any game shows for that matter. However, I enjoyed the experience of seeing the taping of the episodes and all the stuff that goes on to create the shows. I was also surprised at how professional and courteous all the staff were.

avoid all the things you hate
doing. Just do the things that
you like to do.



I think I will modify and use that just enough to avoid paying a royalty.

I have seen 2-3 tapings, most recently "The Tonight Show." I hadn't watched it in years, but it was interesting to see. It was neat to see how the set is way smaller than it looks. How the monologue was 100% scripted. How Leno used old school cue cards not a teleprompter. How they left room to insert the local commercials. And how the "bumps" were taped after the show.

Add in the tour we took and how they explained why the room was cold as a refrigerator, how the couch was hard as a rock, and a few other things. It was the kind of thing I would tell people they should do once.

my wife is unhappy a lot of the time because she's always letting herself get roped into doing things she doesn't want to do. I never do that.
