Meet the Kobe Burger. Sold at the Hamburgueria Nacional, owned by a Japanese chef, it is the local most expensive burger, made of pure kobe wagyu meet mixed with swiss cheese and japanese seasonings.



That is almost the Rachel Weisz of hamburgers.  Almost.

Is the 'almost' because it has Swiss cheese? I like Swiss.

No, it's because Rachel Weisz is Rachel Weisz.

I already knew that the best chocolate wafers ever came from the kosher corner of my local Sainsbury's. A read through the ingredients list confirmed they are also Lenten. The mother of all fistpumps, that was.

I might visit Georgia in July. A bit excited over the idea already. I really enjoyed Armenia last year so looking forward to Georgia also.

I think he wants to know if there's a way to change the settings so that the default language of the forum is something other than English.  I have no idea if that's possible.

I find it remarkable how Julian the Apostate in his Misopogon complained about how the Christians of Antioch were bon vivants. It is such an unlikely complaint.

Do you think he was making it up? It could be an interesting vignette on Christian life from a non-hagiographic point of view.

 Eu acho que ele quer saber se há uma maneira de mudar as configurações para que o idioma padrão do fórum é algo diferente do Inglês.

 Exatamente. Apenas pensei que poderia poderia ser divertido. AFAIK SMF fóruns está disponível em outros idiomas também, mas eu não tenho nenhuma idéia ou se a linguagem pode ser personificado individualmente para cada uso

I don't like that I have to sign in
to see certain things on this forum

How can I visit this forum while

if I am forced to sign in every time I
come here because I see something
interesting that I want to find out about?
This iz crasyness

If things go unwell in my life I will post again in about a week; if they go well I most likely will not post for until quite a bit after that. Many blessings to you and yours from me and mine (except there is only me atm).

I tried my hand at stichomancy in an Orthodox Study Bible the other day.

I got Matthew 7:5.

My thoughts on monarchy are almost completely unrelated to me bringing a convert.

I think some Americans, when they convert, become fascinated with the history of some predominantly Orthodox countries, such as those in Eastern Europe. They find themselves longing for the days of the Tsar, or something. It can get a little weird.

If the person likes the subject, the few times saints and theologians talk about forms of government, they are always praising monarchy as the par excellence Christian form of government.

I'm not a big fan of monarchy, and even believe the Bible is clear in its stand against it, but we can't get past the fact that there is a consistent assessment of it as ideal.

So, I visited the university library today and discovered that it actually has an impressive collection of early christian litterature. They have the works of St. Augustine, the letters of St. Basil the Great, the Church Fathers, the Philokalia and much more. I also found several shelves dedicated to eastern christianity.

Has TheTris' employer blocked OC.net? He hasn't posted for a long, long while.
My company got hit with a bunch of malware, so they severely restricted our internet. I can get on through my tablet or my iphone, but it is painful to try to post through those.

So, I visited the university library today and discovered that it actually has an impressive collection of early christian litterature. They have the works of St. Augustine, the letters of St. Basil the Great, the Church Fathers, the Philokalia and much more. I also found several shelves dedicated to eastern christianity.

Mine has almost everything, even weird Syriac fathers nobody ever heard about.  Hipster patristics, if you will.

In what language? For some reason I having this idea that there's lots of patristics available if you happen to read French. Which I don't. Me sad.

Syriac-French.

Most of the Syriac translations are in French, so that sucks for you.

Oh well. We have a hieromonk-linguist around here who likes to translate hipster patristics into Finnish. Could be worse.

the letters of St. Basil the Great

The Loeb edition, I suppose?

Loebs make things a lot easier for the non-classicist profanum vulgus.

I actually can't remember. I'll have to check and come back to you.

Only because the vulgus is now literate, unlike in Horace's day. ;)

That couldn't be prevented, I'm afraid.

It's ok.  He's Dutch.  Let them have a "win" once in a while.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.
