And it needs some PC work as well

I've always felt that Goliath was just a victim of an HGH malfunction and was probably treated cruelly as a child which resulted in his aggressive tendencies. That was some shabby treatment he got from the young kid with the low tech slingshot whose role model was probably Bart Simpson.:)

They did an episode of the Simpsons where Bart was David was portrayed as Bart. It was most amusing. Many people here would hate it. Goliath beat Bart and became king. Bart returned years later and slew Goliath. Under his benevolent rule, the kingdom had become a center of culture and education as a result of Goliath's enlightened public works and wise social policies.

You never know.

Their bible and Shakespeare are always very good, because they start from reality. Once a 9th grade English student asked me if it was true that actors always call Macbeth by another name, to avoid a hex of some kind. I said he was right, and asked him where he learned it. "Simpsons."

Their church stuff is pretty good, too. Poor Lisa, always the lone seeker-after-truth. Happy

The Philistines had as much culture as anyone around them, and of course they lived in houses when the Israelites were in tents. Happy The "philistine" epithet comes only from their position as the bad guys of Exodus/Joshua IMO. Bible has better reasons to dislike them, anyway.

An episode of Stargate SG1 had the team opposing a crude emissary to a conference in trying to uphold the Good Guy side. He was dressed exactly like the Canaanite warriors in our publications. Probably the producers got the costuming from the same sources we do.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
