Flying Rabbis

What do you think of this:

A group of rabbis and Jewish mystics has taken to the skies over Israel, praying and blowing ceremonial horns in a plane to ward off swine flu.

Each religion has their own special ways to do things. For example Muslims will say a special prayer to induce rain. However, we can do our prayers from the ground :)

I was thinking more about the Egyptian authorities who slaughtered who knows how many pigs to try and stem the tide of swine 'flu. Praying from any location seems preferable to me.

Lol i was waiting for you SoReal to mention it was men that were behind this crazyness.. oh well, u made me do it instead :P

plain is boring and flat, but a plane flies high and fast :)

unJane. i agree.. but Egypt scares me sometimes.. especially since 10% of egypt's population are christians and thus consume pork probably the highest in terms of percentage and number in the arab world. wouldn't it be ironic if the rabbis caught H1N1 at the airport after they touched down ? ouch. airports are very dangerous places when it comes to catching the virus.

Ayla... party? that is the most timid party i've seen! hahaha

DoTs.. wa 5itamh misk!
