TPBM owns a kitchen appliance they never use, but bought it because "it was a good deal".

I truly believe this is because of modernity. We are so advanced technologically. We have so many amazing tools to help us do anything and everything, the best education, great entertainment to distract us, brilliant people who invent amazing things, awesome discoveries in science, wonderful advances in all sorts of marvelous things that make our life easier and etc. Ant yet, these are all the things that have made me stumble in my faith.
But when I can get away from the busy life, the concrete, loud cars, lawnmowers, bright lights that block the night sky, boxed dinners wtih artificial flavoring, I truly feel my mind open, and there's a longing to reach out and touch a God who is not like some phantom. There is nothing natural about the way we live today. There is very little healthy about iit. And its hard to really find God in even everyday situations.
I know we always hear about how this is possible, and we must try really hard to BE with God in the midst of all this chaos, and keep up with our prayers, but for some of us this is just way hard. No doubt, i think some of us are just super sensitive to the harms that come from modern living, and theres a deep wanting to live a life surrounded by a more natural way of living, or apart from all the bustle of the rat races. Im definitely one of those people. Some of us don't even realize that is what we crave because we're just kept so busy.  Yeah, I may be a bit of a treehugger, but if it draws me close to my creator God, then Im fine with the jokes.

Just to clarify I was in no sense objecting to your DC-3 enthusiasm; I am also an enthusiast.  I particularly like the DST variant, which did actually feature subtle differences in the fuselage (placement and number of windows in the passenger cabin).

One could cite the DC-1 prototype flown around the world by Howard Hughes, and the DC-2 (essentially a narrower DC-3) as also being quite interesting,

This seems good.  However I suggest comparing Psalm 95 LXX with 96 MT.   The difference between verse 5 is compelling.   The LxX and Vulgate read something like "The gods of the gentiles are [demons/devils] whereas the MT describes them as idols, which is rather less dramatic and does not suggest in the same way the evil nature of non-Christian religions.

Also the phrase "our Hebrew version" is confusing.  It should also be remembered that portions of the MT and pre-MT Hebraic texts are in Aramaic.
