Menorah Madness & Global Warming Stupidity

“I recently came across a news item published in the Jerusalem Post about a group of environmentalists suggesting that Jews the world over light one candle less each night of Chanukah in order to minimize its impact on global warming.

Each candle produces some 15 grams of Carbon dioxide, they pointed out. When multiplied by the millions of candles being lit during the eight days of Chanukah the damage caused to the environment is really significant, they argued.

At first I thought it was a joke, but as I read on I realized that they were serious.

I decided to investigate the matter and discovered that a healthy adult at rest produces approximately 33.6 gms. of CO2 emissions per minute simply by exhaling. In times of stress this may increase to more than 336 gms. per minute. Each burning candle produces not more than 7 gms. of CO2 emissions (the environmentalists probably made their calculations based on Shabbat candles rather than Chanukah candles which are much smaller…).

Based on this information I came to the conclusion that sitting calmly by the Menorah for the required hour, contemplating G‑d’s miracles in the past and present, will induce a deep state of rest and tranquility which in fact will decrease CO2 emissions thereby helping to combat global warming!”    The Vicious Babushka

    • “Jews are the worst fools”

      You are a despicable fuck!

      Vichy France,[2] Vichy Regime, Vichy Government, or simply Vichy are common terms used to describe the government of France which collaborated with the Axis powers from July 1940 to August 1944, during the Second World War. It officially called itself the French State (État Français)

      Vichy authorities aided in the rounding-up of Jews and other “undesirables”, and at times, Vichy French military forces actively opposed the Allies.

      Most of the Vichy regime’s leaders were put on trial by the GPRF, and a number were executed for treason, war crimes, and complicity in the Holocaust. Thousands of collaborators were informally executed by local Resistance forces.
